A second intelligence official who was allegedly alarmed by President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine was reportedly considering whether to file a complaint. This was according to an article released by the New York Times on October 4th. Similar to the first whistleblower, this person is apparently trying to advance their agenda outside the parameters provided by federal law.
The first whistleblower started with the office of Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. According to the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act, it prohibits direct contact and requires that complaints follow a specific process beginning with the intelligence community inspector general.
