Acting Intelligence Dir. Refused to Turn Over Whistleblower Complaint That Could Involve Trump

HeadlineSep 17, 2019

House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff has accused the acting director of national intelligence of refusing to turn over a whistleblower complaint to protect an unnamed high-ranking official. Schiff subpoenaed Joseph Maguire, the acting head of national intelligence, who has refused to hand over the complaint. Schiff says Maguire consulted the Justice Department about the whistleblower complaint before deciding to withhold it. Schiff wrote in a letter accompanying the subpoena, “The Committee can only conclude, based on this remarkable confluence of factors, that the serious misconduct at issue involves the President of the United States and/or other senior White House or Administration officials.”
