2. The early account by the future whistle-blower shows how determined he was to make known his allegations.

It also explains how Mr. Schiff knew to press for the complaint when the Trump administration initially blocked lawmakers from seeing it

3. The officer then approached a House Intel Committee aide, alerting him to the accusation against Mr. Trump. The House staff member, following the committee’s procedures, suggested the officer find a lawyer to advise him & file a whistle-blower complaint  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/02/us/politics/adam-schiff-whistleblower.html?smtyp=cur&smid=tw-nytimes
