       RE: Notice of Intent to Contact Congressional Intelligence Committees

       Dear Acting Director Maguire:

       My firm represents a member of the Intelligence Community who has reported an urgent
       concern to the Office of the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG). My client
       submitted a disclosure on August 12, 2019, through the established procedures promulgated by law.
       Within the statutorily-mandated period, the ICIG concluded that my client's disclosure was both
       credible and urgent, as the underlying information disclosed meets the standards set forth under
       50 U.S.C. 3033(k)(5)(G).

       In accordance with 50 U.S.C.   3033(k)(5)(D)(ii)(I), I am providing you formal notice of our intent to
       contact the congressional intelligence committees directly. Accordingly, I request direction on doing
       so in accordance with appropriate security practices per 50 U.S.C.   3033(k)(5)(D)(ii)(II).

       I thank you in advance for your time and attention to this matter, and I look forward to your
       forthcoming guidance.


       Andrew P. Bakaj
       Lead Attorney for the Intelligence Community Whistleblower

       Enclosures: None.
       cc: Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
          House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
