The Russian collusion canard failed so Adam Schiff, a Deep State snitch and their stenographers in the media are attacking President Trump with a new ‘scandal.’
House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) recently subpoenaed Acting DNI Chief Joseph Maguire and accused him of illegally withholding a whistleblower complaint from Congress that could potentially be ‘covering up the president’s misconduct.’
The Deep State fanned the flames by leaking to the Washington Post ahead of Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson’s closed-door testimony about the whistleblower complaint scheduled for Thursday.
According to a leak to CNN, IC Inspector General Michael Atkinson on Thursday said during his closed-door, classified session to the House Intel Committee that he could not disclose details in the whistleblower complaint because the Justice Department said it was outside his jurisdiction being that he is in ODNI [Office of Director of National Intelligence].
The intelligence inspector general told the House intelligence committee today that the whistleblower complaint raised issues with multiple instances involving President Trump, sources tell CNN.
Inspector General Michael Atkinson did not get into the substance of the complaint, the source said. CNN had earlier reported, citing a source familiar, that the complaint dealt with a phone call between the President and a foreign leader but the inspector general suggested there was more than one action.

Schitt Schiff gave a presser Thursday afternoon and vowed to release the IG’s letters on the snitch’s complaint.
Schiff read one sentence from Atkinson’s letter then complained the Justice Department was withholding the whistleblower complaint from Congress.
Rep. Adam Schiff says he will release IG's letters on intelligence community whistleblower.

According to a leak to the Washington Post, two former US officials familiar with the matter, Trump’s communications with a foreign leader are a part of the whistleblower complaint that spawned the tense standoff.
President Trump on Thursday blasted the latest hit coming from the Deep State — a whistleblower who filed a complaint over his phone call to a foreign leader.
“Another Fake News story out there – It never ends! Virtually anytime I speak on the phone to a foreign leader, I understand that there may be many people listening from various U.S. agencies, not to mention those from the other country itself. No problem! Knowing all of this, is anybody dumb enough to believe that I would say something inappropriate with a foreign leader while on such a potentially “heavily populated” call. I would only do what is right anyway, and only do good for the USA!” Trump said in a pair of tweets.
CNN analyst, former CIA official and Trump hater Phil Mudd even jumped to Trump’s defense.
Mudd blasted the unidentified ‘whistleblower’ in the intel community and called him a “snitch.”
“Boy, I’m about ready to blow a gasket,” Mudd told CNN’s Chris Cuomo about the whistleblower. “He [Trump] can say what he wants, Chris.”
“I am ticked off. This is completely inappropriate. The Congress should not be asking the intel guys to go snitch on the president,” Mudd added.
