JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

The DNI whistleblower has reached a tentative agreement to meet with members of Congress, should acting DNI Joseph Maguire approve security clearance for the whistleblower’s lawyers.

According to CNN, House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) leaned on Maguire Wednesday to push him to approve the clearance.

The whistleblower’s complaint was declassified Wednesday night but has not yet been released publicly.

Lawmakers have not yet been told the whistleblower’s name or where he works in the government.

The whistleblower’s complaint, centering on President Donald Trump’s interactions with Ukraine, touched off revelations about Trump trying to force an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden that led to an impeachment inquiry.
