A new complaint from within the U.S. intelligence community alleges the whistleblower who launched the impeachment effort against President Trump is violating federal law by soliciting donations — $227,000 and counting, with some coming in anonymously — on a GoFundMe page.
As of Tuesday, more than 6,000 individual donors had already contributed to the whistleblower’s GoFundMe page.
The complaint to the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) charges that the anonymous whistleblower’s fundraising site breaks laws against intelligence officials soliciting “gifts.”
The GoFundMe page also potentially collects the donations from prohibited sources, according to the complaint, which asks the ICIG to investigate whether any “foreign citizen or agent of a foreign government” contributed.
