Former NSA Chief of Staff Suggests Whistleblower May Have Had Congress Members’ Help on Drafting Complaint: A former National Security Agency chief of staff has suggested that that the whistleblower who accused President Donald Trump of improper conduct over a phone call with the Ukrainian president possibly had help from “congressional members or staff” in drafting the complaint.
Fred Fleitz, who is currently the President and CEO of the Center for Security Policy, said in an op-ed published in the New York Post on Thursday, Sept. 26 that he is “troubled” by the complaint and questioned how an intelligence officer could make such a complaint based on a conversation between the president and a foreign leader.
Fleitz said that based on his experience he felt that the document was “extremely polished” and “appears to be written by a law professor” due to its use of legal references and detailed footnotes. He also compared the complaint to a Twitter post written by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Aug. 28, saying that there were similarities.
