Well, gag me with a spoon. Jeff Daniels to Play James Comey in CBS Studios Miniseries, although paired with Jim Carrey as the hapless Andrew McCabe, it could be a good reprise of Dumb and Dumber. Being CBS though, I'm sure it will be a hagiography.
On the whistleblower front, there is much activity on the role of ICIG Michael Attkinson. Sean Davis, DaFed, Intel Community IG Stonewalling Congress On Backdated Whistleblower Rule Changes
As The Federalist reported and the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) confirmed, the spy watchdog secretly changed its whistleblower forms and internal rules in September to eliminate a requirement that whistleblowers provide first-hand evidence to support any allegations of wrongdoing. In a press release last week, the ICIG confessed that it changed its rules in response to an anti-Trump complaint filed on August 12. That complaint, which was declassified and released by President Donald Trump in September, was based entirely on second-hand information, much of which was shown to be false following the declassification and release of a telephone conversation between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.William L. Gensert, AmThink IC Inspector General Atkinson’s Coup. Sundance from CTH, Activity and Background of Sketchy IC IG Michael Atkinson Now Under Investigative Spotlight…
. . .
When pressed on the curious changes and attempts to obscure the timeline of his revisions, Atkinson refused to explain why the forms were backdated to August even though they were not made until September. The ICIG previously stated that it changed its forms and guidance “in response to recent press inquiries regarding” the anti-Trump complaint, of which Congress was not even notified until the second week of September. The new forms, which were not uploaded to the ICIG website until September 24, nonetheless stated that the revisions were made back in August.
ICIG Atkinson never reviewed the call transcript and facilitated the complaint processing despite numerous flaws. Additionally Atkinson ignored legal guidance from both the director of national intelligence (DNI) and the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel that highlighted Atkinson’s poor decision-making.Sundance also runs down the ICIG's past, and links him to the "lawfare" network, and proposes an identity for the whistleblower. Don't miss OregonMuse's Morning Rant at Ace's.
President Trump announced Joseph Macguire as the Acting ODNI on August 8th, 2019. (link) The CIA operative “whistle-blower” letter to Adam Schiff and Richard Burr was on August 12th (link). Immediately following this letter, the ICIG rules and requirements for Urgent Concern “whistle-blowers” was modified, allowing hearsay complaints. On August 28th Adam Schiff begins tweeting about the construct of the complaint.
Well, life got in the way again, so the rest gets dumped.
