Report: Whistleblower Approached House Intel Committee Aide Before Filing Complaint

President Trump Trump has suggested Adam Schiff helped write the whistleblower complaint. This comes as a new report shows the CIA officer behind it approached the House Intelligence Committee before formally filing the complaint.
On Wednesday, the New York Times revealed that before going to Congress the unknown CIA officer had a colleague convey the accusations to the agency’s top lawyer. Concerned that nothing was happening, the whistleblower himself then approached a House Intelligence Committee aide.
The aide, following the committee’s procedures, suggested finding a lawyer to advise on filing the complaint and also shared his findings to Schiff. Chairman Schiff reportedly does not know the identity of the whistleblower. The Intelligence Committee responded to the report, saying it did not review the official complaint before it was filed.
Meanwhile, President Trump continued to slam Democrats as well as the credibility of the whistleblower, while meeting with his Finnish counterpart at the White House. He told reporters in the Oval Office Wednesday that while the whistleblower complaint was inaccurate and dishonest, he believes they should be protected if they are legitimate.

The president went on to specifically slam House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff for his continued misinterpretation of the July phone call and his continued efforts to push impeachment.
“He made it up, every word of it, made up and read to Congress as though I said it,” said President Trump. “And I’ll tell you what, he should be forced to resign from Congress, Adam Schiff, he’s a low life…he should be forced to resign.”
The president said Democrats should focus on American issues such as infrastructure and drug prices instead of coming up with stories in an effort to remove him from office.
