ICIG Admits it Changed Whistleblower Rules BECAUSE of the Anti-Trump Complaint
The Deep State ICIG released a statement on Monday addressing 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 addressing the changes.
In the letter Atkinson admitted the changes to the form were made at the time of the partisan CIA leaker’s complaint.
The ICIG also admitted that it changed its own whistleblower rules *because of the anti-Trump complaint* from the CIA spy:
In June 2019, the newly hired Director for the Center for Protected Disclosures entered on duty. Thus, the Center for Protected Disclosures has been reviewing the forms provided to whistleblowers who wish to report information with respect to an urgent concern to the congressional intelligence committees. In the process of reviewing and clarifying those forms, and in response to recent press inquiries regarding the instant whistleblower complaint, the ICIG understood that certain language in those forms and, more specifically, the informational materials accompanying the forms, could be read – incorrectly – as suggesting that whistleblowers must possess first-hand information in order to file an urgent concern complaint with the congressional intelligence committees.
Not only did the IC IG admit tonight that it eliminated its requirement for first-hand evidence and changed its forms accordingly, it admitted that it changed its own whistleblower rules *because of the anti-Trump complaint.* https://t.co/Hch0L8DdIC pic.twitter.com/Iz9AGQOzR4

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.)
So now any anonymous Deep State spy can file a whistleblower complaint against the President based on hearsay and gossip AND hide behind anonymity because of the Whistleblower Protection Act.
CBS News’ 60 Minutes reported Sunday night the anti-Trump whistleblower whose complaint sparked the impeachment probe against Trump is under federal protection, according to a reading of a letter sent by one of the whistleblower’s attorneys, Andrew Bakaj.
President Trump confirmed on Monday to reporters that the White House is ‘trying to find out’ the identity of the CIA spy who filed a whistleblower complaint against him about his phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
The President on Monday morning also demanded to know who changed the whistleblower rules shortly before the Deep State spy filed a complaint.
Meanwhile, in a coordinated attack against President Trump, former CIA Chief John Brennan called for an unlimited number of Deep State spies to file whistleblower complaints against Trump.
