Trump’s interaction with the foreign leader included a “promise” that was regarded as so troubling that it prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community

It raises new questions about the president’s handling of sensitive information and may further strain his relationship with U.S. spy agencies

IC IG determined that the complaint was credible & troubling enough to be considered a matter of “urgent concern.”

The Acting DNI will testify publicly 9/26 re ithe whistleblower complaint.

The IC IG will testify in closed session tomorrow.

Schiff: Trump’s DNI is illegally withholding a whistleblower complaint, possibly to protect Trump or senior WHOs.

Even after the intel community's IG characterized the complaint as credible and of "urgent concern."

Schiff issued a subpoena for the complaint

& accused acting DNI Joseph Maguire of taking extraordinary steps to withhold the complaint from Congress

“A DNI has never prevented a properly submitted whistleblower complaint that the [IG] determined to be credible & urgent from Congressial ICs. Never.”

Schiff: “This raises serious concerns about whether WH, DOJ or other executive branch officials are trying to prevent a legitimate whistleblower complaint from reaching its intended recipient, the Congress, in order to cover up serious misconduct."

Intel makes his pals look bad & strains their ‘friendships’

Trump's skeptical view on foreign informants undermines one of the most essential ways that American intelligence agencies gather information about US adversaries, including analysis of their capabilities and intentions.

In the intelligence community, this information is referred to as "HUMINT," which is short for "human intelligence." This is distinguished from so-called "SIGINT," or "signals intelligence," which includes intercepted emails, telephone calls, and text messages.

An informant extracted from Russia in 2017 sent secrets to the CIA for decades and was a vital source about Moscow’s 2016 election interference

As American officials began to realize that Russia was trying to sabotage the 2016 presidential election, the informant

became one of the CIA.’s most important & highly protected assets.

But when intelligence officials revealed the severity of Russia’s election interference with unusual detail later that year, the news media picked up on details about the CIA Kremlin sources.

The move brought to an end the career of one of the CIA’smost important sources.

It also effectively blinded US intel officials to the view from inside RU as they sought clues about Kremlin interference in the 2018 midterm elex & next year’s presidential contest.
