Intelligence Inspector General Says Whistleblower Used the 2018 Form and Had Firsthand Information

this rebuts something the President has been pushing.

In summary, regarding the instant matter, the whistleblower submitted the appropriate Disclosure of Urgent Concern form that was in effect as of August 12, 2019, and had been used by the ICIG since May 24, 2018. The whistleblower stated on the form that he or she possessed both first-hand and other information. The ICIG reviewed the information provided as well as other information gathered and determined that the complaint was both urgent and that it appeared credible. From the moment the ICIG received the whistleblower’s filing, the ICIG has worked to effectuate Congress’s intent, and the whistleblower’s intent, within the rule of law. The ICIG will continue in those efforts on behalf of all whistleblowers in the Intelligence Community.

The whistleblower alleged first hand information and second hand information and used the form that “had been used by the ICIG since May 24, 2018.”

Interesting to see the Inspector General push back on this. Also, please note numerous Republican congressmen are privately, though not publicly, willing to say the Inspector General is a professional who they trust and they do not think he was part of an operation to leak or undermine the President.
