(Tea Party PAC) – On Friday, Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett penned an op-ed explaining that the government whistleblower who issued the whistleblower complaint against Trump may not be a whistleblower at all.
It appears that it was an Amerian spy from our intelligence agency who has been spying on the president.
This most recent Deep State hit pon the president began last week, when House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) subpoenaed Acting DNI Joseph Maguire, accusing him of illegally withholding a whistleblower complaint from Congress and potentially “covering up the president’s misconduct” over a phone call the president had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Jarrett, however, doubts the status of this whistleblower.
“To put this in plain language, a spy who allegedly spied on the president does not have a legitimate whistleblower complaint against that president under the law. The ICWPA is a mechanism to report alleged misconduct by members within the intelligence community, of which the president is not,” Jarrett.
The identity of the “whistleblower” has not yet been released to the public, but Trump has said it is a “highly partisan” person.
“It’s ridiculous…It’s just another political hack job…I don’t know the identity of the whistle-blower. I just hear it’s a partisan person,” Trump said.
Q: "You want to address this whistle-blower story?"

Jarrett noted these five crucial facts:
1. It appears that an American spy in one of our intelligence agencies may have been spying on our own president. The complaint suggests that this intel agent was secretly listening in on Trump’s conversation with a foreign leader. Was this person officially asked to listen to the conversation or was he or she secretly listening in? We don’t know.
2. This agent, who is an unelected and inferior federal employee in the government hierarchy, apparently believes that it is his/her job to second-guess the motivation behind the words of the elected president, who is the most superior officer in the U.S. government.
3. Article II of the Constitution gives the president sweeping power to conduct foreign affairs, negotiate with leaders of other nations, make demands or offer promises. The Constitution does not grant the power of review, approval or disapproval to spies or other unelected officials in the executive branch.
4. The ICWPA law defines the parameters of an “urgent concern” complaint as an abuse or violation of law “relating to the funding, administration, or operations of an intelligence activity involving classified information, but does not include differences of opinions concerning public policy matters.” The president’s conversation with a foreign leader does not seem to fall under this whistleblower definition.
5. It appears the acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) agrees with this assessment. His agency’s general counsel wrote a letter stating the complaint did not meet the ICWPA definition because it involved conduct “from someone outside the intel community and did not relate to intelligence activity”, according to a report by Fox News. This is why the DNI refused to forward the complaint to congress.
The real scandal here, of course, is that President Trump is being spied on and the legislative branch his trying to access his private conversations with foreign leaders, to say nothing of the Deep State spy who is helping them!
