White House aide slams the whistle-blower’s letter as reading like a ‘Nancy Drew novel’ as he accuses its CIA agent author of being a ‘deep state operative’ engaging in a ‘partisan hit job’
- White House Senior Advisor Stephen Miller accused the whistle-blower of being a ‘deep state operative’ who is trying to damage the president
- He also said the complaint read like a ‘seven-page little Nancy Drew novel’
- On Fox News Sunday, he also said the CIA agent who wrote the complain doesn’t deserve the title of ‘whistle-blower’
- Miller’s criticism is directed at the man behind the allegations that Trump pressured the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden
- He instead said Trump is the real ‘whistle-blower’ for bringing the Bidens’ Ukrainian business dealings to light
Donald Trump’s Senior Advisor Stephen Miller compared the Ukrainian saga to a ‘little Nancy Drew novel.’
Miller told Fox News Sunday that Trump is the real ‘whistle-blower,’ claiming he should be the one getting praise for bringing attention to the corruption of Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
The president and his top political rival in 2020 have found themselves at the center of controversy this past week after a whistle-blower alleged that in a July 25 phone call Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Bidens’ business dealings in Ukraine.
Hunter took a position with Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings in 2014, while his father was still serving as Barack Obama’s vice president. The move raised eyebrows in Washington by those who said it was a clear conflict of interest, but was dismissed by the administration at the time as acceptable because Hunter is a private citizen.

The so-called whistle-blower has no direct knowledge of the conversation between Trump and Zelesnky, but House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff says the individual – identified as a male CIA agent – wants to testify before Congress.
‘I think it’s unfortunate that the media continues to describe this person as a whistle-blower, an honorific that this individual most certainly does not deserve,’ Miller asserted to Fox News’ Chris Wallace. ‘A partisan hit job does not make you a whistle-blower just because you do it through the Whistleblower Protection Act.’
Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire testified before Congress on Thursday, and said he believes the whistle-blower in question acted ‘by the book’ and it was done in ‘good faith.’
Maguire was called to testify after he refused to turn over the whistle-blower’s complaint, citing executive privilege, when Congress demanded it last week.
‘If you read the seven-page little Nancy Drew novel that the whistle-blower put together, it drips with condescension, righteous indignation and contempt for the president. It’s also ludicrous on its face,’ Miller chastised.
‘I’ve worked in the federal government now for nearly three years now, I know what the deep state looks like,’ Miller continued. ‘I know the difference between a whistle-blower and a deep state operative. This is a deep state operative, pure and simple.’
Trump released on Wednesday an unredacted transcript of the phone call, claiming it would prove nothing nefarious went on during the conversation.
To the contrary, critics insist the president was pressuring Zelensky to investigate Biden and the transcript shows he even offers up his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and Attorney General Bill Barr to help.
Others went as far to say that the transcript shows there was a quid pro quo for military aid to Ukraine for digging up dirt on Biden, but the text of the conversation proves no such thing.
The new revelations of the call caused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has been hesitant to utter the ‘I-word,’ to finally announce the lower chamber of Congress was launching an impeachment inquiry into the president.
Trump insists Biden should be the one to get investigated for conflicts of interest and contributing to corruption in Ukraine while serving as vice president.
