President Trump Blasts Deep State Whistleblower Who Filed Complaint Over Phone Call to Foreign Leader
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.

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 Committee can only conclude, based on this remarkable confluence of factors, that the serious misconduct at issue involves the President of the United States and/or other senior White House or Administration officials,” Schiff said in a letter to Maquire a week and a half ago.
The whistleblower complaint was filed last month shortly after Maquire was chosen to be acting DNI Chief.
Joseph Maguire refused to comply with Schiff’s September 17 deadline and will not testify this week or hand over the whistleblower complaint, prompting a standoff with Congress.
Wednesday night 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 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.
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.
