Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) confirmed during an appearance on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Sunday that the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) changed whistleblower protocol, which resulted in the current Ukraine scandal and subsequent impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
“[The ICIG is] either totally incompetent or part of the deep state, and he’s got a lot of questions he needs to answer because he knowingly changed the form and the requirements in order to make sure that this whistleblower complaint got out publicly.” Nunes said to Matt Boyle on the radio program.
“So he’s either incompetent or in on it, and he’s going to have more to answer for, I can promise you, because we are not going to let him go; he is going to tell he truth about what happened,” Nunes added.
Nunes claimed that the whistleblower filled out the old form that required first hand knowledge when they initially submitted their complaint, but the rules were changed after it was filed in order to validate and publicize the complaint. It is hard to believe that all of this occurred by happenstance.
“First of all, you have the change of the forms. … You no longer had to have firsthand information; you had to have secondhand information. Clearly they backdated it to August. The evidence is clear that it didn’t change on the website until the 25th of September,” Nunes said.
“So the form that the whistleblower filled out — he actually filled out the old form that said you had to have firsthand knowledge. The whistleblower readily admits he doesn’t have firsthand knowledge. So conveniently the IG did this, claims that was always the case, claims it wasn’t the law; I already told you, he’s going to have more questions to answer,” he added.
Michael Atkinson, who is the current ICIG, testified to Congressional lawmakers on Friday and addressed questions and comments about the whistleblower. Atkinson’s testimony was not made public, but Democrats were apparently very happy with his performance.
“While we cannot get into the substance, we explored with the IG through documents and testimony the reasons why he found the whistleblower complaint to be both urgent and credible,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said in a statement. “We look forward to following up on what we learned today and continuing our investigation into the facts.”
Big League Politics reported last week that the CIA whistleblower may have committed a felony submitting the complaint because they failed to disclose the communications that they had with Rep. Schiff’s office:
The CIA “whistleblower” who issued a complaint against President Donald Trump based on his correspondence with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky may have committed a felony by not disclosing their meetings with Rep. Adam Schiff (R-CA) on the report…
Sean Davis, legal analyst for The Federalist, believes that the whistleblower may have violated the following requirement on the complaint submission form: “I have previously disclosed (or am disclosing) the violations alleged here to (complete all that apply).”
A provision in the bill could put the deep state whistle-blower, who made the complaint without any first hand knowledge of Trump’s actions, on the wrong side of the law.
“I certify that all of the statements made in this complaint (including any continuation pages) are true, complete, and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief,” whistleblowers must attest when submitting a complaint.
The potential punishment is severe: “I understand that, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 1001, a false statement or concealment of a material fact is a criminal offense punishable by a fine of up to $10,000, imprisonment for up to five years, or both.”
With the shuttered Russian collusion investigation now a fading memory, what is likely the next phase of the deep state’s coup against President Trump is proceeding at breakneck speed.

Former U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher CONFIRMS That He Floated Possible Presidential Pardon to Julian Assange
Trump’s alleged willingness to pardon Assange shows that he is still fighting the deep state.
Yesterday, an attorney for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said in court that his client was offered a presidential pardon in exchange for Russia testimony. Former Congressman Dana Rohrabacher has now essentially confirmed those allegations.
“I spoke to Julian Assange and told him if he would provide evidence about who gave WikiLeaks the emails, I would petition the president to give him a pardon,” Rohrabacher said to Yahoo News. “He knew I could get to the president.”
Rohrabacher had a three-hour meeting with Assange in August 2017 while he was holed up at the Ecuadorian Embassy in Britain. Rohrabacher was hoping to gather proof that Seth Rich, a former DNC staffer murdered in 2016 who many now put on the Clinton kill count, or another individual leaked the information to WikiLeaks. The deep state claims the Russians were behind it.
He made it clear that he only requested “truthful” information from Assange, and in no way meant to coerce him to produce a “lie.” Rohrabacher talked to former White House chief of staff John Kelly after the fact about the meeting, whom he said was “courteous” but ultimately brushed him off.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham, who worked for the First Lady when this took place, is vehemently denying the allegations.
“The President barely knows Dana Rohrabacher other than he’s an ex-congressman,” she said in a statement. “He’s never spoken to him on this subject or almost any subject. It is a complete fabrication and a total lie. This is probably another never ending hoax and total lie from the DNC.”
Right now, Assange is facing 18 felony charges, including 17 under the Espionage Act, for allegedly helping former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning hack information exposing deep state crimes and other illicit activities in 2010.
“Chelsea Manning’s plea and mitigation to the military commission has key passages which we will be relying on so we would seek to extract that and key press reports so the court has key materials,” said Assange’s attorney Edward Fitzgerald, who is arguing that Britain should not extradite his client back to the United States, during a preliminary court appearance this week.
“What we say is it is an abuse to seek extradition for a political offense so that is really part of the abuse argument,” he added.
Assange has repeatedly said on the record that Russia did not give him the information that his organization leaked from the DNC.
“Hillary Clinton has stated multiple times, falsely, that 17 U.S. intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications. That’s false. We can say that the Russian government is not the source,” Assange said in Nov. 2016 in an interview with an Australian broadcaster.
“Well, the reason is obvious. They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President,” Assange told Sean Hannity during a Fox News interview, explaining the genesis of the Russia lie.
“We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party,” Assange told Hannity.
A pardon of Assange would be a devastating blow to the deep state, which has been battling to overthrow President Trump since his election.
