Congressman Adam Schiff claimed on Sunday that the official who sits atop the intelligence community is rejecting a subpoena to turn over a whistleblower complaint in order to protect an even higher-ranking official, possibly a top administration official or even President Trump.
“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,” Schiff wrote in the letter. While he said he couldn’t divulge the contents of the complaint, the fact that the DNI had cited “privileged communications” means that it would involve a “pretty narrow group of people.”
“No DNI — no director of national intelligence — has ever refused to turn over a whistleblower complaint,” Schiff added.
