A new report reveals that a whistleblower has filed a complaint alleging “attempted abuse of authority” along with possible violations of federal law by some of President Trump’s top officials in law enforcement and intelligence.
ABC News reported on Wednesday that Brian Murphy, the former acting chief of the Department of Homeland Security’s intelligence branch, filed a complaint against the department.
Murphy says officials attempted to “censor or manipulate the intelligence information” connected to Russia’s interference in U.S. elections, as well as the threat posed by domestic white supremacy groups.
