        The Honorable Joseph Maguire
        Acting Director of National Intelligence
        Office of the Director of National Intelligence
        Washington, D.C. 20511


        Dear Acting Director Maguire:

               In a letter sent to you today, September 25, 2019, the attorney for the Intelligence
        Community whistleblower who submitted on August 12, 2019 the complaint that you have
        withheld from the Committee reaffirmed his client's request for direction on how to
        communicate directly with the Committee in accordance with appropriate security practices, as
        set forth in 50 U.S.C. § 3033(k)(5)(D)(ii)(II).

               To enable the whistleblower's direct communication with the Committee, which the
        Committee formally requested occur tomorrow, September 25, 2019 in the afternoon, the
        attorney also requested that the whistleblower's three attorneys be provided appropriate security
        clearances so that they may be in attendance with their client for any communication with the
        Committee.

               This is a reasonable request that the Committee strongly supports and expects your office
        to process immediately. Given recent declassification of information that the White House has
        indicated is related to the whistleblower's complaint, and what appears to be the specific subject
        matter involved in the complaint, providing appropriate security clearances, if even necessary
        anymore, should be feasible without delay.

               Please advise the Committee today that your office is processing the request and by when
        the whistleblower's attorneys will be granted the necessary clearances to facilitate the
        whistleblower's statutorily-protected communication with the Committee.


Chairman
