The Deep State whistleblower is a CIA officer who was detailed to work at the White House, according to a new report by the New York Times.
Little is known about this ‘whistleblower’ but the Times reported that he has since returned to the CIA.
The whistle-blower who revealed that President Trump sought foreign help for his re-election and that the White House sought to cover it up is a C.I.A. officer who was detailed to work at the White House at one point, according to three people familiar with his identity.
he man has since returned to the C.I.A., the people said. Little else is known about him. His complaint made public Thursday suggested he was an analyst by training and made clear he was steeped in details of American foreign policy toward Europe, demonstrating a sophisticated understanding of Ukrainian politics and at least some knowledge of the law.
Lawyers for the whistle-blower refused to confirm that he worked for the C.I.A. and said that publishing information about him was dangerous.
The C.I.A. officer did not work on the communications team that handles calls with foreign leaders, according to the people familiar with his identity. He learned about Mr. Trump’s conduct “in the course of official interagency business,” according to the complaint, which was dotted with footnotes about machinations in Kiev and reinforced with public comments by senior Ukrainian officials.
“Any decision to report any perceived identifying information of the whistle-blower is deeply concerning and reckless, as it can place the individual in harm’s way,” said Andrew Bakaj, his lead attorney and Biden donor. “The whistle-blower has a right to anonymity.”
House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Thursday told reporters that he will be calling in the whistleblower to testify.
Schiff added that the whistleblower’s testimony will “help identify some other individuals to corroborate” allegations in the complaint.
Acting DNI Joseph Maguire publicly testified before the House Intelligence Committee Thursday morning about the Deep State spy trying to be passed off as a heroic whistleblower by the Democrat-media complex.
President Trump attacked the whistleblower’s sources on Thursday and hinted at harsh punishment for the Deep State spies.
