Acting DNI Joseph Maguire called the whistleblower complaint and its intricacies “unprecedented,” adding that his own actions “might be” unprecedented as well.
Rep. André Carson (D-IN) asked Maguire if this is the first time a whistleblower complaint has ever been withheld from Congress.
“I believe that it might be,” Maguire responded. “And once again, as I said in my statement, it is in fact, as far as I’m concerned, unprecedented.”
In his opening remarks, he said that a whistleblower complaint that “touched on such complicated and sensitive issues, including executive privilege” is unprecedented.
