Just revealed on Fox News. The Whistleblower started working with Adam Schiff back in July to formulate the actual complaint document.
“[Cohen] should be a key witness the way John Dean was to translate this criminal behavior. Michael now becomes a crucial witness as this process unfolds,” he said. Davis also revealed that he had contacted top Democrats in the House of Representatives — key committee chairmen Elijah Cummings, Jerry Nadler, and Adam Schiff.
The people included Tommaso Di Ruzza, the director of the AIF, and Monsignor Mauro Carlino, the head of documentation at the Secretariat of State. The other three held minor roles in the Secretariat of State, the key department in the Vatican’s central administration.
Tuesday’s raid is believed to be the first time the two departments were searched for evidence involving alleged financial crimes.
The AIF, headed by Swiss lawyer Rene Bruelhart, Di Ruzza’s boss, is the financial controller, with authority over all Vatican departments.
Vatican investigators were believed to be looking into real estate transactions, particularly relating to expensive properties in London.
investigators were also looking into the use of money from Peter’s Pence, a fund taken up in parishes around the world and earmarked for the pope’s charitable activities.
The bank, officially known as the Institute forWorks of Religion, or IOR, was for decades embroiled in numerous financial scandals as Italians with no right to have accounts opened them with the complicity of corrupt insiders

There is no whistleblower. That is why Trump is pushing being able to confront so hard. Schiff constructed the doc and since it was 2nd hand knowledge it can't fall back on him.
The perfect tense or aspect (abbreviated perf or prf) is a verb form that indicates that an action or circumstance occurred earlier than the time under consideration, often focusing attention on the resulting state rather than on the occurrence itself
In English, several uses of the perfect aspect have been recognized:
Resultative perfect (referring to a state in the present which is the result or endpoint of an event in the past):
"I have lost my pen-knife" (message: I still don't have it)
Continuative perfect (past situations continuing into present):
"I have always guided him"
Anterior perfect (completed past situations, but with relevance to the present):
"It has rained" (implication: the streets are wet now)
Experiential perfect (stating that a given situation has occurred at least once in a period of time leading up to the present time):
"Bill has been to America""I have seen that film three times now"
Universal perfect (stating that a given situation has been going on continuously during a period leading up to the present time):
"The meaning of the Perfect has been debated for 200 years"
Back in 2007, when Jeffrey Epstein was under scrutiny and his finances were under pressure, the convicted pedophile cut a deal with New York real estate titan Andrew Farkasto be a partner in a small marina on Saint Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. This deal, according to Bloomberg, gave Epstein his entry into the world of luxury yachting, a business investment that would fit his lifestyle and the lifestyle of the wealthy that he spent decades courting. It also aligned Epstein with a key figure in New York’s business and political scene, Andrew Farkas. Epstein was involved in the project semi-anonymously: for more than 10 years, public records of Farkas's port company haven't involved Epstein or mentioned his name.
Epstein and Farkas had interests that converged in St. Thomas. Epstein owned the nearby island of Little St. James and Farkas had a grand vision for his two-year-old marina business that was specializing in slips for mega yachts around the world. He was trying to build a major development on St. Thomas and was looking for more Caribbean property.
In 2007, Farkas acquired American Yacht Harbor, which was a 127 slip marina with a small shopping center on the east side of St. Thomas. The purchase was completed for an undisclosed price according to a 2018 deposition. It isn’t clear how the partnership that followed came to fruition. However, in late May of that year, Epstein bought half the ownership interest in the marina. Not even Farkas's accountants know what he paid for his stake
Curiously, Wexner’s own 316 foot yacht also had few docking options in the Virgin Islands in the early 2000‘s. Up until Epstein and Farkas's venture launched their new port, Wexner could only dock 100 miles away on the Dutch island of St. Maarten.
It’s still unclear how Epstein and Farkas first crossed paths. Farkas is a Harvard graduate and is the chairman of a school social organization that got tens of thousands of dollars in donations from charities connected to Epstein. One of Farkas's uncles was friends with Epstein for decades. That Uncle, Jonathan Farkas, said in 2011 that he visited Epstein while he was under house arrest in 2011.
Andrew Farkas of Island Capital and his girlfriend brought along his friend Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem of DP World Ltd — who previously headed Dubai World and its subsidiaries Nakheel and Istithmar. His son, Ahmed Sultan Bin Sulayem, who leads an organization that identifies non-conflict diamonds, also attended the Liberty Ball.
Epstein made it seem on negotiation documents as though Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, a wealthy Dubai businessman with connections to the Saudi royal family, was purchasing the island
“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.
Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.
For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strongdelusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

In a 2010 photo, obtained by Daily Mail, Epstein could be seen deep in conversation with movie producer Jonathan Farkas, with whom he would often double date.
Billionaire real estate titan Andrew Farkas has divorced his stunning second wife, Sandi, and has taken up with a 22-year-old Harvard senior.
Sources said megayacht lover and Gov. Andrew Cuomo crony Farkas, who is 56, is cavorting around the Hamptons with a busty senior from his alma mater.
Farkas is a big Harvard benefactorand is the “chairman and Grand Sphinx” of the university’s Hasty Pudding Institute of 1770, the famed social club that cultivates talent in the performing arts, satire and comedy. There’s even a Farkas Hall on campus.
Farkas also owns the fancy Montauk Yacht Club.
