US President Donald Trump said that he wants to meet with an intelligence officer who wrote a complaint against him because of the July telephone conversation of the head of the Washington administration with Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelensky.
“Like any American, I deserve to meet with my accuser, especially when that accuser, a so-called whistleblower, presented a perfect conversation with a foreign leader in a completely inappropriate and deceptive manner,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Also, US President expressed a desire to meet with the person who gave to informant the data that became the basis for his report. “I want to meet not only with my accuser, who provided information from the second, third, fourth hands but also with the person who illegally provided him with this data, which is largely incorrect <...>. Was this man spying on the American President? Serious consequences!” Trump threatened.
The American leader also called “at the highest level” to interrogate the Chairman of the special Committee on intelligence of the house of representatives of the US Congress Adam Schiff (Democrat from California) because of his distortion of the content of the conversation of Trump and Zelensky.
“Schiff lied to Congress, distorting what I said <...>. He wrote and read things, said they were from the mouth of the President of the United States. I want Schiff to be questioned at the highest level for deception and treason,” US President added.
The US intelligence officer who wrote the complaint is under Federal protection. This was reported in documents that came to the disposal of CBS on Sunday.
According to the channel, the informant was taken under protection because he or she was worried about his or her safety.
