On Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” Monday, Sean Davis explained the corruption within the intelligence community. Over the course of the past year, the intel community eliminated a requirement that whistleblowers must provide firsthand knowledge of alleged wrongdoings in order to file a complaint.
“The changes to eliminate the requirement for firsthand information in whistleblower complaints happened between May 2018 and August 2019. … When we asked the DNI and the IC IG for information on who changed it, when, and why, they straight up refused to answer that question,” Davis said.
Davis also talked about a possible collaboration between Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and the intelligence community.
On Aug. 28, Schiff tweeted information from the whistleblower complaint before it was made available to Congress in September.

It doesn’t take a stable genius to see the magnitude of this conflict.
Or how destructive it is to our national security. https://t.co/X4yhTS2q1Z

“We were told that the congressional committees didn’t get this whistleblower complaint until September. But when you look at the complaint, which the president declassified and released last week, it was dated Aug. 12, and it was addressed to Adam Schiff himself,” Davis said. “So it certainly seems as if Schiff knew a lot more about what was going on than he let on.”
