House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff discusses confronting acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire about a whistleblower complaint not brought to the committee. Aired on 9/17/2019.
Sam Stein: “Have you heard from the whistleblower? Do you want to hear from the whistleblower? What protections could you provide to the whistleblower?” …
Schiff: “We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to. But I am sure the whistleblower has concerns that he has not been advised, as the law requires, by the inspector general or the director of national Intelligence just how he is supposed to communicate with Congress, and so the risk to the whistleblower is retaliation.”
“We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to.”
