House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) hired two National Security Counsel (NSC) aides who worked with the Ukrainian whistleblower while at the NSC during both the Obama and Trump administration, the Washington Examiner reported.
Abigail Grace worked at the NSC from 2016 to 2018 in U.S.-China relations, followed by a short stint at the Center for a New American Security think tank. Schiff tapped her in February to work as an Intelligence Committee staffer to help investigate the Trump White House.
The second aide, Sean Misko, worked as an NSC aide until 2017. He was also part of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's policy planning staff under Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan. He joined the Intelligence Committee as a staffer in August, the same month the whistleblower filed his complaint.
A source who spoke to the Washington Examiner had reason to believe both Grace and Misko were untrustworthy
