Whistleblower Complaint Made Public, Maguire Testifies

In the latest in the ever evolving, ever changing case of the “Ukrainian Phone Call,” the full unredacted whistleblower complaint has been made public, and Acting DNI, Joseph Maguire, has spent half the day testifying before Congress.

In the 9-page declassified version of the document, which is dated Aug. 12, the unnamed whistleblower cites conversations and details provided by “more than half a dozen U.S. officials,” alleging that Trump is “using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election.”

This happened just before Joseph Maguire arrived on Capitol Hill, where during tense testimony, the former Navy SEAL defended his handling of the explosive whistleblower complaint alleging President Trump pressured the Ukrainian president to investigate the Biden family — while calling the issue “unprecedented.”

Acting DNI Testifies on Whistleblower Complaint

Maguire was grilled by Democratic lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee but insisted he is “not partisan” and “not political,” reminding the panel that he served under eight presidents and has taken the oath of office 11 times.

“I have served and led through turbulent times,” he said.  “… My integrity has never been questioned until now.”

However, he maintained, “I believe that I handled this matter in full compliance with the law at all times.”

The rare open hearing of the intelligence committee gripped the nation’s attention most of the day on Thursday.

While being pushed by the Democrats to go on record with statements that would suit their impeachment agenda, Maguire pushed back by reminding the committee that the complaint was not based on direct knowledge, particular as regards the whistleblower’s use of the term “cover-up.”

“This is second-hand information from a whistleblower. I have no knowledge if that is a true and accurate statement,” Maguire said regarding the “cover-up” claim. The complaint said White House officials tried to “lock down” records of the call. In the same document, the whistleblower also acknowledged not being a “direct witness” to most of the events described, instead citing other U.S. officials who are not named.

Of course, as Democrats on the committee badgered Maguire, Republicans rose to his defense, while at the same time accusing Democrats of launching an “information warfare operation” against President Trump. Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, said of Maguire, “I think you’re nuts if you’re going to convince the American people that your cause is just by attacking this man, by impugning his character.”

Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., browbeat Maguire over the timeline of his cooperation with the committee. Maguire hit back by saying he was not able to release the document at first because of executive privilege concerns and other issues. He also said he is not aware of any instance where such a complaint dealt with such “complicated and sensitive issues.”

“I believe that this matter is unprecedented,” he testified. He also said he does not know the identity of the whistleblower, but said that he believes that he or she acted in “good faith.”

The White House, on Wednesday, released an unclassified version of the transcript of that controversial phone call. The memo, which does not reflect a “verbatim transcript” but is based on “notes and recollections” of those memorializing the call, shows Trump congratulating Zelensky on his election victory before Trump eventually gets to the subject of the Bidens, seeking an investigation of some kind.

Maguire says that the whistleblower complaint released Thursday “is in alignment with what was released yesterday by the President.”

    The Dems take another step toward ellimination. Just another hoax fabricated by a desperate party against a sitting president because their darling crooked Hillary didn’t win a fair election and continue the downward spiral America has endured under Obama

    This accusation should never have been presented for invetigation. It is all based uon heresay. Regardless whether the “whistleblower” acted on good faith is irrelevant. We cannot allow our President, no mattter who he or she is,
    to be harassed like this.

    In a murder tiral, an accuser must state the facts and only the facts. This was not donme here. A reliable witness did not come forward with actual knowledge of the telephone conversation.

    Americans shoud be ashamed of these shannigans. Our leaders are to be respected ,no harassed. The truth is that the left supportd by the media, hates anyone in office who puts roadblacks in the way of their intended goals.
    It woldn’t have had to be <r. Trump. Anyone who can't be bought and refuses to stand down would receive the same treatment.

    Teh Deep State compiosed of many high ranking officials feel threatened; their past and futures being disclosed could be the end of their career. That is why there is hate; it isn't because of tMr. Trump; it's because they are beingchallenged and swtopped.

    Just as important as the fact that this report was all lies, is the fact that even if it were true, it was all within the law.

    Is anyone surprised that the Whistleblower is just another Liberal liar. It is just getting ridiculous how the Left keeps digging deeper the hole they are sinking into. All the people have to do is stop for a few minutes to see that the Conservatives are the only ones who have done anything to help them. The Democrats take and give nothing back. They have sucked the life out of the American people. Why would the people of this country support these corrupt lying sewer rats. Wake up America. Kick the Democrats and Socialist back to hell.

    As a wordsmith, I analyze every word that was the context. All words said by continuation or stringing are consistent what was actually said. I am asking for a favor, the next string of words refer to what happened in 2016, which from other evidence confirms his wanting to clean up what was done. I law, the President’s attorney is allowed to speak for the president and if the president sends him, he is his envoy. Thus when Biden said these words, we see that biden was given authority by the President. (Obama)
    Note; the assertion made by the House, directly contradicts the Constitution, as what a President can say. What is being said, in convoluted and it is design to brain wash the American people to accepting a deviated logic.
    This thunderbolt that is launched can be a mortal blow at our Democratic Republic is being done to ruin the Constitution and our liberties. This was the sediment of Chief Justice John Marshall in 1798 that was done, with malice by the Republicans then, Democrats now due to Thomas Jefferson’s actions and that of James Madison, who wanted the ideas of the French Revolution; Ideology, known a communism today.

    Pelousy, Shifty, Schloomer, and the like have got to be voted out. They are working together to destroy the country. The dummycrat party has become a joke under their communist/socialist leadership. They are the reason that gun sales have skyrocketed. We must be ready for an attempted takeover of the country and loss of freedom America is founded on.

    This whole WB claim is such a mess. The Dems need to do what they are supposed to do and leave the President alone! They have already been proven wrong and caught in so many lies it is just time to quit! That is the only way they have any chance at all of winning 2020. personally I think they have already lost! I am a registered democrat and am now ashamed to admit it! I am voting for president Trump in 2020!

    am disappointed to see a once great political party turn into fascist traitors, unadjudicated felons, and slime balls like the “Adam Schiffs”,the Clintons, and the Bidens that the party has become over populated with. They completely disgust me and are committing treason by trifling with an elected President and the Constitution. They have demonstrated themselves to be liars, corrupt, and cavalier. As far as I am concerned, they are traitors to this conty.

      I have posted many messages. I am not happy that some one is interfering with it. So here goes again. I’m very conscience f all the smearing in our politics. My opinion is it is because there is so much hate with defeat. So I am going to vote our president back in for our next term. I have never lived with so much hate in congress. We have voted and this is the way it is. And will be next term. Hope one day to ban the news media for fraud and speculations with out truths. They are non goody two shoes. So we will deal with this by believing in our president.

    This coming election: Republicans offer: God, & Country…..family values…..Our COnstitution, as it was written, & intended…..equality for all…..end to Abortion……end to political corruption, & freedom for all Americans!

Diversion from decency, & family values, & a God based Society….{ Diversion, & abandonment }……This is what is offered by America’s political parties……is this what our Forefathers, had in mind? ? ? ? ?

    Yes the left is attacking our great President Donald Trump day in and day out. However, we should look closely at our very own senators and congressman who have not taken a stand to defend President Trump.
    WHY NOT! think about it.
