(Gateway Pundit) – Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett said Friday in a Fox op-ed that the Deep State whistleblower who penned a complaint against Trump may not be a whistleblower at all — it appears he is an American spy in our Intel Agency spying on President Trump.
This new Deep State hit began effervescing last week when House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) subpoenaed Acting DNI Joseph Maguire and accused him of illegally withholding a whistleblower complaint from Congress that could potentially be ‘covering up the president’s misconduct’ over a phone call he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Gregg Jarrett questioned the Deep State snitch’s whistleblower status and suggested he may just be an American spy in our intel agency who is spying on our own President.
“To put this in plain language, a spy who allegedly spied on the president does not have a legitimate whistleblower complaint against that president under the law. The ICWPA is a mechanism to report alleged misconduct by members within the intelligence community, of which the president is not,” Gregg Jarrett argued.
The identity of the Deep State ‘whistleblower’ still has not been released to the public, however Trump revealed he is a ‘highly partisan’ individual.
Gregg Jarrett pointed out the five following facts:
1. It appears that an American spy in one of our intelligence agencies may have been spying on our own president. The complaint suggests that this intel agent was secretly listening in on Trump’s conversation with a foreign leader. Was this person officially asked to listen to the conversation or was he or she secretly listening in? We don’t know.
2. This agent, who is an unelected and inferior federal employee in the government hierarchy, apparently believes that it is his/her job to second-guess the motivation behind the words of the elected president, who is the most superior officer in the U.S. government.
3. Article II of the Constitution gives the president sweeping power to conduct foreign affairs, negotiate with leaders of other nations, make demands or offer promises. The Constitution does not grant the power of review, approval or disapproval to spies or other unelected officials in the executive branch.
4. The ICWPA law defines the parameters of an “urgent concern” complaint as an abuse or violation of law “relating to the funding, administration, or operations of an intelligence activity involving classified information, but does not include differences of opinions concerning public policy matters.” The president’s conversation with a foreign leader does not seem to fall under this whistleblower definition.
5. It appears the acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) agrees with this assessment. His agency’s general counsel wrote a letter stating the complaint did not meet the ICWPA definition because it involved conduct “from someone outside the intel community and did not relate to intelligence activity”, according to a report by Fox News. This is why the DNI refused to forward the complaint to congress.
President Trump on Friday blasted liberal reporters at the White House and said he does not know the name of the whistleblower, but that he heard he’s a “partisan person.”
“It’s ridiculous…It’s just another political hack job…I don’t know the identity of the whistle-blower. I just hear it’s a partisan person,” Trump said.
Q: "You want to address this whistle-blower story?"

The real scandal is that President Trump is being spied on and the legislative branch is trying to access his privileged and private conversations with foreign leaders with the help of a Deep State snitch.
