Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire said he has not investigated the truthfulness of the whistleblower's complaint.
He was responding to a question from GOP Rep. Devin Nunes.
Here's how the exchange went down:
Nunes: "I just want to get one thing straight, because one of the quotes they're going to use from you is you saying that this was a credible complaint. That will be used and spun as you're saying that it was true. And I want to give you an opportunity to — you do not — you have not investigated the veracity or the truthfulness of this complaint."
Maguire: "That's correct, ranking member."
