Rep. Stewart: 'Insane' for Dems to Attack DNI on Whistleblower Report

By    |   Friday, 27 September 2019 12:10 PM

It was "insane" for House Democrats to attack acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire for the amount of time he took to release a whistleblower's account of President Donald Trump's July telephone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, Rep. Chris Stewart said Friday. 

"Not only do I disagree with that, I think it's insane," the Utah Republican told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "It's nuts. It's insane for them to attack that person. Anyone who watched this hearing could clearly see he saw the right thing to do."

The whistleblower's report had been issued in August, and Democrats have widely criticized Magure for not turning it over to Congress. Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday commented that Maguire broke the law by not releasing the report to lawmakers.

Meanwhile, the complaint contained nothing more substantial than what had been released in the transcript from the White House, said Stewart. 

He also rejected the claims that the transcript had been kept on a secret computer system in the White House and that a cover-up had taken place. 

"This is the world's worst cover-up ever," said Stewart. "For heaves' sake, they released the transcript. They did so very quickly. They released the whistleblower complaint. They did so very quickly. At one point they might have been afraid that some of this would leak and maybe that compelled them to move the transcript on to another computer. But we don't know if that's true anyway. We don't know if anything in this complaint is true because the whistleblower had no first-hand information of any of this other ancillary accusation."
