CNN Analyst Condemns Whistleblower Complaint: Intel Community Should Not ‘Snitch' on Trump to Congress
CNN counterterrorism analyst Phil Mudd expressed outrage Wednesday night over a report that a whistleblower complaint at the center of a standoff between Congress and the intelligence community involves President Donald Trump making a "promise" to a foreign leader. But it wasn't the idea of Trump in cahoots with a foreign leader that angered Mudd—it was the idea of the intelligence community ratting him out for it.

The Washington Post reported that an official in the U.S. intelligence community was so disturbed by the president's communication with a foreign leader that the official filed a whistleblower complaint with the intelligence community's inspector general. While the IG found the matter of "urgent concern," something that requires Congress to be notified, the acting Director of National Intelligence has refused to share details of the complaint.

Appearing on CNN's Cuomo Prime Time moments after the Post's report dropped, Mudd—a former CIA analyst—immediately condemned the whistleblower's alleged actions.
