Now unclassified and re-marked for public release, the Congressional Notifications alerted the Director of National Intelligence and the Congressional intelligence oversight committees that whistleblower-related communications had been accessed through routine CIA counterintelligence monitoring. The new ICIG earned accolades from Chairman Chuck Grassley for facilitating the declassification and release of the documents within two weeks of his October 15, 2018 request.
