1/ UPDATED THREAD: I inadvertently skipped option 4 in the 7 options for how to respond to the whistleblower complaint. So let’s start again: according to sources, the IC IG is not telling the committee what’s in the complaint because the law states it must come from the DNI...
2/ So we have a few options. Option 1 is inherent contempt. That’s when the house dems have the Sergeant at Arms detain the DNI and compel him to hand over the complaint during his testimony as he will likely refuse to do so. This hasn’t been used since 1934.
3/ Option 2 is a contempt citation referral to the DoJ, but that’s headed by Bill Barr, so yeah.

Option 3 is to file suit like they did in the Mazar’s case, but rumor has it you can’t take civil judicial action in whistleblower cases. Not sure I read the law that way, though...
4/ Option 4 is to have the whistleblower speak directly to the committee, but that goes outside the law and if we CAN petition the court, it could be dismissed for not following the letter of the law. If they can’t sue, let’s just do this.
5/ Option 5 is that trump and the DNI hand over the complaint. Yeah, right.

Option 6 is we ride at dawn and March September 21st #WeThePeopleMarch
6/ Option 7 is the whistleblower leaks to the press.

So if we CAN sue, we will have to wait for the DNI to “testify”, follow the rules, and file suit. If we CAN’T sue, the one, lone patriot whistleblower should speak to Schiff or leak to the press. In ALL cases, we vote in 2020
