Deep State ICIG Releases Statement on Why It Was Necessary to Change Whistleblower Forms to Include: Watercooler Talk, Rumors, Hearsay and Cafeteria Conversations
The Deep State ICIG released a statement on Monday on why they found it necessary to change their rules LAST MONTH to include watercooler talk, rumors, hearsay and cafeteria conversations.
Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson released a statement on Monday.
In the letter Atkinson admits the changes to the form were made at the time of the partisan CIA leaker’s complaint.
As Conservative Treehouse notes the changes were made at the same time Rep. Adam Schiff was accusing President Trump, Rudy Giuliani and holding back funding pending assistance with political opponents. (This was already found to be a lie.)
In his letter Atkinson claims the alleged CIA “whistleblower” had direct knowledge of certain alleged conduct.
The ICIG argues that the form was changed last month to include rumors and hearsay because there is no such requirement in the statute.
Atkinson and his staff had to work overtime to make the CIA spy’s second-hand information to fit the whistleblower laws.
This process was changed just so the deep state could damage President Trump.
Here is Atkinson on changing the rules.
Although the form requests information about whether the Complainant possesses first-hand knowledge about the matter about which he or she is lodging the complaint, there is no such requirement set forth in the statute. In fact, by law the Complainant – or any individual in the Intelligence Community who wants to report information with respect to an urgent concern to the congressional intelligence committees – need not possess first-hand information in order to file a complaint or information with respect to an urgent concern. The ICIG cannot add conditions to the filing of an urgent concern that do not exist in law.
Atkinson also claims the CIA “whistleblower” urgent concerns appeared credible. But the whistleblower’s letter does not include any firsthand information.
It is obvious from reading Atkinson’s statement that this was a hit on President Trump — and Michael Atkinson is in on it.
