Most of you are probably aware that the rules for whistleblower complaints were recently changed. This actually created an issue due to the timing when it was done. It was changed just before the whisteblower complaint was filed against President Trump for his call with Ukrainian President Zelensky which is VERY suspicious.
The Deep State Intelligence Community Inspector General, Michael Atkinson, released a news statement this week explaining why they thought it necessary to alter the rules on whistleblower complaints to include watercooler talk, rumors, hearsay and cafeteria conversations rather than just firsthand information.
Here is what Atkinson said about changing the rules,
“Although the form requests information about whether the Complainant possesses first-hand knowledge about the matter about which he or she is lodging the complaint, there is no such requirement set forth in the statute. In fact, by law the Complainant – or any individual in the Intelligence Community who wants to report information with respect to an urgent concern to the congressional intelligence committees – need not possess first-hand information in order to file a complaint or information with respect to an urgent concern. The ICIG cannot add conditions to the filing of an urgent concern that do not exist in law.”

Atkinson also said that the CIA “whistleblower’s” concerns appeared credible so they made everything urgent, even though the CIA has proven to be as compromised.
All of this tells us a number of things.
