  FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

  October 9, 2019

                              Statement Concerning Alleged Bias

  In light of the ongoing efforts to mischaracterize whistleblower # 1's alleged bias in order to
  detract from the substance of the complaint, we will attempt to clarify some facts.

  First, our client has never worked for or advised a political candidate, campaign, or party.

  Second, our client has spent their entire government career in apolitical, civil servant positions in the
  Executive Branch.

  Third, in these positions our client has come into contact with presidential candidates from both
  parties in their roles as elected officials - not as candidates.

  Fourth, the whistleblower voluntarily provided relevant career information to the ICIG in order to
  facilitate an assessment of the credibility of the complaint.

  Fifth, as a result, the ICIG concluded - as is well known - that the complaint was both urgent and
  credible.

  Finally, the whistleblower is not the story.

  To date, virtually every substantive allegation has been confirmed by other sources. For that reason
  the identity of the whistleblower is irrelevant.

                                      Andrew P. Bakaj, Esq.
                    Lead Attorney for the Intelligence Community Whistleblower

                                        Mark S. Zaid, Esq.
                       Attorney for the Intelligence Community Whistleblower
