DNI Chief To Testify Before House On Whistleblower

Talking Points Memo reports:

Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire [photo] and Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community inspector general, will meet with the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, according to the top Democrat on the panel.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) told reporters on Tuesday that the two men will brief the Senate committee separately in the wake of a whistleblower complaint reportedly linked to President Trump’s actions toward Ukraine.

Maguire is also expected to testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday. The whistleblower complaint and reports that Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani pressed Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and the former vice president’s son have fueled new impeachment calls from Democrats.
