Urgent: Reichert on Petraeus whistleblower
Per Pergram-Capitol Hill
From Rep. Dave Reichert (R-WA, pronounced RY-kert).
“Our office stands by the accuracy of the New York Times article as it pertains to Rep. Reichert. We have no further comment about our involvement.”
Adding to this…from what I’ve compiled.
The whistleblower is an FBI agent who has a friend who is an FBI agent who is friends with Reichert. Reichert used to be the Sheriff of King County, WA and is well dialed-in to the law enforcement community.
Reichert talked to the whistleblower..then to Cantor’s office…and put the whistleblower in touch with Cantor directly.
We don’t believe the whistleblower has claimed legal whistleblower status yet.
