Inspector General Of Intelligence Community And Trump Stonewall Questions About Whistleblower
The Inspector General of the Intelligence Community refused to hand over information about a whistleblower — to House Intelligence members — who reported President Donald Trump’s inappropriate “promise” to a foreign leader in a phone call, notes CNN.
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-California) said the Inspector General “is answering some questions not on the specific subject matter but it’s deeply troubling,” tweets NBC News’ Alex Moe.
Speier (pictured above) also said it was a “violation of the law” that the whistleblower complaint wasn’t sent to Congress by the Inspector General.
Speier said, “I think we’ve got a very grave situation on our hands.” “The standard that has to be met by the IG… urgent is talking about fire, as he referred to it,” tweeted Sam Brodey.
Trump called the accurate reports “fake news” on Twitter:
….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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 19, 2019
