ICIG Whistleblower Form Recently Modified to Permit Complaint “Heard From Others”…

Folks, this “Ukraine Whistleblower” event was a pre-planned event.  As we begin to understand the general outline of how the Schiff Dossier was assembled, we are now starting to get into the specifics.  First discovered by researcher Stephen McIntyre, there is now evidence surfacing showing the ICIG recently created an entirely new ‘whistleblower complaint form’ that specifically allowed for the filing of complaints “heard from others“.

Prior to the current “whistleblower complaint” the Intelligence Community Inspector General did not accept whistle-blower claims without first hand knowledge.  However, the ICIG revised the protocol in August 2019 allowing for the EXACT type of complaint now registered from the CIA whistleblower.

The IGIC revision was made at the same time HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff was tweeting in August about President Trump, Rudy Giuliani and holding back funding pending assistance with political opponents.  Note the Date: (link)

The timing here is far too coincidental.  This was a set-up.

Sean Davis from the Federalist is also hot on the trail.

Sean Davis – Between May 2018 and August 2019, the intelligence community secretly eliminated a requirement that whistleblowers provide direct, first-hand knowledge of alleged wrongdoings. This raises questions about the intelligence community’s behavior regarding the August submission of a whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump. The new complaint document no longer requires potential whistleblowers who wish to have their concerns expedited to Congress to have direct, first-hand knowledge of the alleged wrongdoing that they are reporting.

The brand new version of the whistleblower complaint form, which was not made public until after the transcript of Trump’s July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky and the complaint addressed to Congress were made public, eliminates the first-hand knowledge requirement and allows employees to file whistleblower complaints even if they have zero direct knowledge of underlying evidence and only “heard about [wrongdoing] from others.”

The internal properties of the newly revised “Disclosure of Urgent Concern” form, which the intelligence community inspector general (ICIG) requires to be submitted under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act (ICWPA), show that the document was uploaded on September 24, 2019, at 4:25 p.m., just days before the anti-Trump complaint was declassified and released to the public. The markings on the document state that it was revised in August 2019, but no specific date of revision is disclosed. (read more)

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 “whistle-blowers” was modified, allowing hearsay complaints. On August 28th Adam Schiff begins tweeting about the construct of the complaint.

As Stephen McIntyre notes: “it appears almost certain that, subsequent to the CIA operative “WB” complaint, the DNI introduced a brand new Urgent Disclosure Form which offered a previously unavailable alternative to report allegations with no personal knowledge.”

The prior IGIC complaint form can be viewed via the Wayback Machine – SEE HERE and the new IGIC complaint form that allows hearsay can be compared HERE.

The CIA whistleblower complaint is likely the VERY FIRST complaint allowed using the new IGIC protocol and standard.  Taken in combination with the timeline of the August 12th notification letter to Schiff and Burr and the Schiff tweet of August 28th, there’s little room for doubt this Ukraine whistleblower impeachment effort was pre-planned.

Additionally, this coordinated effort ties back-in Intelligence Community Inspector General, Michael K Atkinson.

The center of the Lawfare Alliance influence was/is the Department of Justice National Security Division, DOJ-NSD. It was the DOJ-NSD running the Main Justice side of the 2016 operations to support Operation Crossfire Hurricane and FBI agent Peter Strzok. It was also the DOJ-NSD where the sketchy legal theories around FARA violations (Sec. 901) originated.

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) is Michael K Atkinson. ICIG Atkinson is the official who accepted the ridiculous premise of a hearsay ‘whistle-blower‘ complaint; an intelligence whistleblower who was “blowing-the-whistle” based on second hand information of a phone call without any direct personal knowledge, ie ‘hearsay‘.

Michael K Atkinson was previously the Senior Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General of the National Security Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ-NSD) in 2016. That makes Atkinson senior legal counsel to John Carlin and Mary McCord who were the former heads of the DOJ-NSD in 2016 when the stop Trump operation was underway.

.

[Irony Reminder: The DOJ-NSD was purposefully under no IG oversight. In 2015 the OIG requested oversight and it was Sally Yates who responded with a lengthy 58 page legal explanation saying, essentially, ‘nope – not allowed.’ (PDF HERE) All of the DOJ is subject to oversight, except the NSD.]

Put another way, Michael Atkinson was the lawyer for the same DOJ-NSD players who: (1) lied to the FISA court (Judge Rosemary Collyer) about the 80% non compliant NSA database abuse using FBI contractors; (2) filed the FISA application against Carter Page; and (3) used FARA violations as tools for political surveillance and political targeting.

Yes, that means Michael Atkinson was Senior Counsel for the DOJ-NSD, at the very epicenter of the political weaponization and FISA abuse.

Immediately after the Carter Page FISA warrant is approved, in the period where DOJ-NSD head John Carlin has given his notice of intent to leave but not yet left, inside those specific two weeks, the National Security Division of the DOJ tells the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) they have been breaking the law. The NSD specifically inform the court they are aware of contractors who have been using FISA 702(16)(17) database search queries to extract information on political candidates.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has looked into the FISA application used against U.S. Person Carter Page. Additionally, U.S. Attorney John Durham is said to be looking at the intelligence communities’ use of systems for spying and surveillance.

If the DOJ-NSD exploitation of the NSA database, and/or DOJ-NSD FISA abuse, and/or DOJ-NSD FARA corruption were ever to reach sunlight, current ICIG Atkinson -as the lawyer for the process- would be under a lot of scrutiny for his involvement.

Yes, that gives current ICIG Michael Atkinson a strong and corrupt motive to participate with the Schiff/Lawfare impeachment objective.

Atkinson’s conflict-of-self-interest, and/or possible blackmail upon him by deep state actors who most certainly know his compromise, likely influenced his approach to this whistleblower complaint. That would explain why the Dept. of Justice Office of Legal Counsel so strongly rebuked Atkinson’s interpretation of his responsibility with the complaint.

In the Justice Department’s OLC opinion, they point out that Atkinson’s internal justification for accepting the whistleblower complaint was poor legal judgement. [See Here] I would say Atkinson’s decision is directly related to his own risk exposure:

.

Within a heavy propaganda report from the New York Times there are also details about the Intelligence Community Inspector General that show the tell-tale fingerprints of the ICIG supportive intent (emphasis mine):

[…] Mr. Atkinson, a Trump appointee, nevertheless concluded that the allegations appeared to be credible and identified two layers of concern.

The first involved a possible violation of criminal law. Mr. Trump’s comments to Mr. Zelensky “could be viewed as soliciting a foreign campaign contribution in violation of the campaign-finance laws,Mr. Atkinson wrote, according to the Justice Department memo. (read more)

Does the “foreign campaign contribution” angle sound familiar?  It should, because that argument was used in the narrative around the Trump Tower meeting with the Russian Lobbyist Natalia Veselnitskaya.  More specifically, just like FARA violations the overused “campaign contribution” narrative belongs to a specific network of characters, Lawfare.

The “Schiff Dossier”, aka “whistle-blower” complaint was a constructed effort of allied members within congress and the intelligence apparatus to renew the impeachment effort.  The intelligence team, including the ICIG, changed the whistleblower form to allow the CIA to insert the Schiff Dossier, written by Lawfare.

The Soft-Coup effort continues…

    WOW. TREEPERS. PLEASE. STAY FOCUSED:

    Everybody in DC and beyond knows about the Biden gig. That’s why the outrage machine is firing blanks on that issue. What we AREN’T HEARING IS AIRING OUT CROWDSTRIKE.

    DEAFENING SILENCE.

    Guess who WAS talking about it all afternoon on his radio show yesterday? Hannity. In exquisite detail. It was quite a narrative, and very thorough.

    I keep seeing through our threads that R’s like Jordan, Meadows, et al are not helping, not supporting the President, whining like crybabies to Maria on Sunday AM, that Barr/Durham and Co. aren’t doing their jobs, that Trump alone should blow the whole thing up. We don’t know how you do it, Mr. President, but just DO. IT. NOW.

    That little phone convo the Left is disintegrating under should have been very instructive to us, too, but apparently the message they heard loud and clear is lost on too many of the rest of us. Everything they have been doing BT (before Trump) AND AT (after Trump) is being reverse engineered right in front of the entire country. Actually, the entire global community. Anyone who doesn’t see that convo as the ultimate trolling maneuver seriously understimates the genius that is Trump.

    That “envoy” to Ukraine, State Department resignation weren’t just coinkydink. Why do you think Pompeo is getting more subpoenas in his mailbox than I got trash mail from Publishers Clearing House since I was legal to vote? Forget it. I ain’t tellin’ ya’ll how old I am….nunya!

    There’s something else being ignored here: Durham has been all over Europe. And Barr didn’t go to Italy to buy a pizza. But listening to some voices here you’d think they hooked up with Obama and went for a cruise on George Cloony’s party barge.

    I would NEVER claim to know everything that’s going on behind the scene played out for us. What I AM saying is that YOU DON’T EITHER, my friends.

    The stuff we don’t know…IS A LOT. What I do know is I have eyes, ears, a brain, discernment, Sundance, and President Donald J. Trump.

    I would say the odds are in our favor.

    Something seems strange about the new complaint form, as opposed to the older “personal knowledge only” form.

    I downloaded the new form (hearsay allowed), and then two earlier older files available from archive.org (thank you Sundance for the link).

    Clicking on File/Document Properties of those pdfs, the following can be seen:

    1. The earliest downloaded form was created 9-11-18, and has fillable form fields; the security settings indicate that text changes etc. are allowed in the document. The author name says “Mitchell A. Ly-DNI-Y”; and the “Custom” information says: “Company: U.S. Government, SourceModified”. Additional “Custom” information indicates that form may actually have been first created on 5-17-18.

    2. The next form created shortly thereafter 11-9-18, appears to be exactly like the one above; however; the security settings do not allow changes. The author and “Custom” information is the same as above. Apparently someone realized it might be smart to have some security on this document.

    3. The new form from Aug/Sept 2019 (allowing designation of “heard from others”) is somewhat different. It says created 9-25-19. There are no fillable form fields, only straight text. This document has zero security settings – any of the text in the document can be easily edited or altered (including the Revised date at the bottom right corner). There is no document author name given; and at “Custom” information, it no longer says “U.S. Government”, but only “Company: SourceModified”.

    At the least it seems very strange that a purported government document that can lead to legal action and in this case possible impeachment proceedings of the POTUS, would not have more security settings. I tried changing the text and it was very easy to do.

    Another question is, why does the document say “Rev. August 2019”, when the date in the document properties says it was created 9-25-2019?

    And why does the new document no longer show U.S. Government as the “Company”? Does anyone know what “SourceModified” means?

    More questions than answers, it seems. Anyone with more thoughts and/or knowledge of pdf document attributes and security, please weigh in…

    In my opinion, there are way too many lawyers in government service that think that the president we elected should answer to them. That’s how I view the change in the urgent concern form.

    The change in the urgent form means a would be whistleblower no longer needs the media to leak. They can just chat with Congress. Congress can leak.

    I think many intelligence people (lawyers by training) do not like the fact that President Trump did not release his tax returns, but they have to share theirs to get approved by Congress.

    There’s a huge difference politically between getting elected and getting approved or simply working for the government. It seems like they can’t cope being under an elected executive decision maker.
