    The whistleblower claims the information comes second hand from state official members who Are protected by the whistleblower laws / 1) No one as asked if there was actually a breach of security /
    2) The breach of security must first be investigated and not just assumed because of the content in the whistleblower's complaint / 3) If there was a breach in security which as been made by several according to complaint of the whistleblower, There should be an investigation to ascertain whether the complainant has whistleblower status in law 😎✔

    I do believe we managed to get a mouse to chair a committee. How much stupid can Schiff hold in that gourd of his? Ad hominem, out.
    Asking the Chief of Intelligence his "opinion" on whether something outside his subpoenaed reasons is fishing for jackalopes. Bye, bye, Mr. Schiff.

    I believe Morgan is a patriotic American an that these assholes are trying to make it look like he had motives behind his doing his job to the absolute letter of the law. I really don't like Trump but this whole Media circus is getting it off control. We should all boycott mainstream media until they find there integrity again..

    Maguire made the same mistake as Special Prosecutor Mueller. Maguire decided to with hold it. The OLC just brushed it off. Just remember no one is above the law and he would have followed the law. Mr. Carson got it right. Chairmen Schiff is completely on the ball.

      @It's Meekers Well if stuff keeps popping up it just keeps popping up. Obviously there were bad things being done as early as of January 2018. No one new until now. Someone has the courage to say something despite all the other wrongs that are being done by the President. Just like now you and others continue to scapegoat that keeps the country in this downfall.

    39:25 Maguire was wrong because it did fall under the DNI"S Authority. If he reads the letter the IG wrote simply. The DNI is already acting under Executive Order by Law default and the DNI is Principle Adviser to the President. No Disclosure needed since the President was the Violator of Law. Another fact is the President sign the Executive Order that he is now under Impeachment Inquiry for. Foreign Influence in the United States.. Brilliant just Brilliant! Congress would never have needed a Subpoena and Maguires Job is to provide Intelligence..

    20:33 OLC was wrong saying it wasn't required to send forward. Unfortunately Maguire didn't realize or lack of understanding being new to the job all he needed was the Whistle Blower Complaint and the Inspector Generals letter to move forward. The President, the AG or OLC didnt need to be involved there is no such thing Executive Priviledge. The President can use executive priviledge. He was suppose hand it over to congress within the 7 day time frame. In other words he was given the letter because there is no choice or decision to make to hand it over. By Law it was given to the right guy on Purpose Maguire just didn't understand.

      You apparently don't know the concerns and consequent legal protections afforded whistle blowers due to the fact that the vast majority of people who take this step and are exposed effectively lose their careers, regardless of whether or not their claims are officially verified or not.

    How can someone be a whistleblower when they are just going off rumors and inuendo. They did not even hear the call. If it was supposedly such a big deal then why did one of the supposedly dozens of white house people who had first hand knowledge file the whistleblower complaint. Did you see Adam Schiff heads "parody" of the phone call? What a load of baloney.

      @C Clark there has been a lot of turnover in various positions in the white house the last 3 years. And none of those people did any whistle blowing or made any claims like the anonymous person did. And the whistleblower has no first hand knowledge. It is all heresay and bs.

      How can people make posts in comment sections sounding like they know the facts when in fact they are just going off rumors and innuendo?

      That's not his duty. His duty is to deliver the mail. Biden's son was never under investigation nor was he implicated in anyway by the investigation. The investigation into money laundering was requested by U.K. due to one of the former board members who now resided in their country.
