by Senator Tom Cotton’s office:
Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today sent a letter to Michael Atkinson, Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, after his evasive testimony before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence during a closed hearing on September 26. Inspector General Atkinson repeatedly refused to answer questions about the political bias of the “whistleblower”, despite being in a closed session along with also despite This kind of information being unclassified. The Inspector General wouldn’t reveal This kind of information to the Senate Intelligence Committee, however later revealed the idea to the House Intelligence Committee.
The letter outlines 5 outstanding questions Senator Cotton has for Inspector General Atkinson along with also asks him to reply no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 11. The full text of the letter will be below along with also can be found by clicking here.
Dear Inspector General Atkinson,
Your disappointing testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee on September 26 was evasive to the point of being insolent along with also obstructive. Despite repeated questions, you refused to explain what you meant in your written report by “indicia of an arguable political bias on the part of the Complainant in favor of a rival political candidate.” This kind of information will be, of course, unclassified along with also we were meeting in a closed setting. Yet you moralized about how you were duty bound not to share even a hint of This kind of political bias with us.
however right now I see media reports of which you revealed to the House Intelligence Committee not only of which the complainant will be a registered Democrat, however also of which he features a professional relationship that has a Democratic presidential campaign. I’m dissatisfied, to put the idea mildly, with your refusal to answer my questions, while more fully briefing the three-ring circus of which the House Intelligence Committee has become.
So, I will ask again along with also give you one more chance to answer: what are these “indicia of arguable political bias”? More specifically:
- Does the complainant have (or did he once have) a professional relationship that has a Democratic presidential candidate or campaign?
- If so, which candidate or campaign along with also what will be the nature of of which relationship?
- What different “indicia of arguable political bias” of the complainant did you find?
- Did you or anyone subject to your control or influence share with CNN of which the “arguable political bias” was merely of which the complainant will be a registered Democrat?
- Why did you refuse to answer my questions at the September 26 hearing?
This kind of information will be urgently relevant for the American people along with also their elected representatives to evaluate the complainant’s credibility along with also to determine whether the House’s so-called impeachment inquiry has been, in reality, a well-coordinated partisan attack by the beginning.
This kind of information will be also simple, unclassified, along with also personally known to you. Therefore, please reply in writing no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 11. I look forward to your answers, even two weeks late.
the idea has right now been nearly two months since IG Atkinson was called on by the US Senate to answer their questions on the bias of Eric Ciaramella, the anti-Trump CIA “whistleblower.”
According to Paul Sperry, Atkinson refuses to comply with the Senator’s request.
BREAKING: IC IG Michael Atkinson refuses to comply with Senate Intelligence Committee requests to detail the political bias of the “whistleblower” he personally handled. Atkinson will be an Obama holdover who worked closely with #SpyGate suspects at DOJ. His wife has donated to Dems.

along with also Adam Schiff refuses to Discharge Atkinson’s closed door testimony by the basement star chamber.
I know why @paulsperry_ the idea’s because I asked IG Atkinson about his “investigation” into the contacts between Schiff’s staff along with also the person who later became the whistleblower. The transcript will be classified “secret” so Schiff can prevent you by seeing the answers to my questions

As The Gateway Pundit reported last week Atkinson’s wife will be also linked to Fusion GPS along with also he will be an Obama holdover.
Atkinson has had two months to respond to Senator Cotton however has ignored his request.
When will he be held to account?
