Myth vs. Fact: Whistleblower Complaint
Let the facts be known and share this on social media.
As the whistleblower story unfolds, Trump has continuously bombarded the public with false claims, clamoring to justify his corrupt acts. But while Trump is busy tweeting, we’ve got the facts.
Myth: Whistleblower rules changed before the Ukraine complaint.
Fact: The law was never changed and there is no requirement that whistleblowers only use first-hand knowledge in their complaints. First-hand knowledge immediately calls for official investigations to confirm or reject the first-hand information.
Myth: Trump can interview and expose the whistleblower.
Fact: According to the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act of 1998, if whistleblowers report wrongdoing through a specific system, they can receive protection from retaliation by Congress. The intelligence community inspector general is not legally permitted to expose the identity of the whistleblower unless it is unavoidable.
Myth: The call on July 25th was “perfect.”
Fact: Trump repeatedly pushed the Ukrainian president to investigate one of his potential political opponents and their family, asking him to “do us a favor” and “get to the bottom of it.”
Myth: The whistleblower’s “second hand information that proved to be so inaccurate.”
Fact: Several key details of the whistleblower complaint have been corroborated. The White House transcript of the July 25th calls shows the whistleblower accurately summarized the conversation.
