The “whistleblower” controversy sparked a lot of questions when the redacted complaint was released and there was excessive mention of receiving information from second-hand sources. The declassified complaint specifically stated “I was not a direct witness to most of the events described. However, I found my colleagues’ accounts of these events to be credible because, in almost all cases, multiple officials recounted fact patterns that were consistent with one another.”

Naturally, Republicans, some media, and the President himself brought light to the irresponsible actions of Pelosi to launch an impeachment investigation because of an anonymous person with zero firsthand knowledge. The inspector general for the intelligence community said late Monday in a lengthy statement that the “whistleblower stated on an initial form Aug. 12 ‘that he or she possessed both first-hand and other information.”

Apparently “two relevant boxes” were checked on the form. One “stating to have personal and/or direct knowledge of events or records involved’; and the other box stating, ‘other employees have told me about events or records involved.” However, in addition to the complaint admitting to not being a direct witness, “Inspector General Michael Atkinson’s letter sent on Aug. 26 to the director of national intelligence asserted that ‘the Complaint’s letter acknowledges that the Complainant was not a direct witness to the President’s telephone call…”

Fox News reports that “Republicans, meanwhile, sought answers from the intelligence community on Monday, after a report in The Federalist revealed the intelligence community’s whistleblower form was recently revised to drop a requirement that such complaints include firsthand information in order to be sent to Congress.”

Conveniently for Pelosi and this particular whistleblower, previous “important procedural hurdle for intelligence community whistleblowers — who had been required to certify that they had firsthand information in order to escalate their complaints” was no longer the case.

  1. How was HER statement changed & who authorized the change? IMHO that was an addition by the opposition.

  2. Then the whistle blower is a CIA spy spying on and trying to harm the President. We need to start hanging corrupted deep state spies and deep state morons that support them.

  3. This all smells to high heaven! I don’t trust any of the democrats or the deep state. They are all in on trying to take down our Elected President Donald J. Trump. Make no mistake the American people are not going to take this sitting down!!

  4. Where did the common sense of the American people go?

  5. If this person is a cia operative or analyst they are forbidden by statue to operate inside the United States. This person should be brought up on charges of spying and if convicted sent to Leavenworth or a Super Max prison.

  6. To me the whisle blower and the dems;.sounds like Bing Crosby’s song. ‘The Horse Told Me’.

    “…. Oh, the owner told Clarence the clocker.

    The clocker told jockey Mcgee.

    The jockey of course passed it on to the horse

    and the horse told me…..”

  7. This is nothing more than another bald faced and pathetic attempt to undermine our Duly Elected President through LIES, subversion, and abuse of position within the Gov. These CRIMINALS and all who enable ( Shiff, Pelosi, Nadler) them need to be arrested and charged with SEDITION.
