Maguire confirmed whistleblower could testify freely

Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire on Thursday gave the House Intelligence Committee his assurance that once security clearances are given to the whistleblower's counsel that the whistleblower will be able to testify freely.

Rough Cut (no reporter narration).

U.S. Representative Terri Sewell, a Democrat from Alabama, asked Maguire if he could assure to the committee that the whistleblower is authorized to speak to the committee with the 'full protections of the whistleblower act'.

"I am working with counsel, with the committee to support that request," Maguire responded back.

She also questioned Maguire if he felt there would be a 'chilling effect' on people who want to come forward.

Following the news of the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer weighed in. CNN reports the top Senate Democrat said that a Supreme Court vacancy 'should not be filled until we have a new president.' Senate Republicans only need 51 votes to confirm a new justice once one is formally nominated.
