Rep. Adam Schiff said Sunday that the House Intelligence Committee might not need to interview the CIA analyst who filed a whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump, a reversal for the Democrat, who has come under fire for failing to disclose the whistleblower’s contacts with his office.

Schiff acknowledged he initially supported the whistleblower testifying about the Aug. 12 complaint, which centered on a July 25 phone call Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

 

“Given that we already have the call record, we don’t need the whistleblower who wasn’t on the call to tell us what took place during the call, we have the best evidence of that,” Schiff said on “Face the Nation.” “It may not be necessary to take steps that might reveal the whistleblower’s identity to do that, and we’re going to make sure we protect that whistleblower.”

 

The Democrat has slowly pulled back his preference for the whistleblower to testify after it was revealed Oct. 2 that the CIA analyst had contact with a Schiff aide prior to filing the complaint Aug. 12. 

 

In interviews leading up to the release of the whistleblower complaint, Schiff implied he had no insight into who the whistleblower was, or what they were alleging.

 

Margaret Brennan, the host of “Face the Nation,” did not ask Schiff questions about his office’s interactions with the whistleblower. She asked Schiff in the closing seconds of her show if he regretted saying in an interview Sept. 17 that “we have not spoken directly with the whistleblower.”

“We would love to talk directly with the whistleblower,” Schiff said in that interview.

Schiff said Sunday he should “have been much more clear” about his office’s contacts with the whistleblower.

 

Schiff acknowledged Sunday that he initially wanted the whistleblower to testify, but that he has changed his mind after Trump “started threatening the whistleblower and threatening others.”

Schiff noted Trump has referred to the unidentified whistleblower as a spy and traitor.

 

“Our primary interest right now is making sure that that person is protected. Indeed, now there’s more than one whistleblower, that they are protected,” Schiff said.

House Democrats have given indications that they were shifting away from pushing for the whistleblower’s testimony.

 

House Democrats were considering disguising the whistleblower during any potential interview in order to prevent Republicans from leaking the whistleblower’s identity, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.

 

A Republican source familiar with the matter told the Daily Caller News Foundation in response to that report that it appeared Schiff was “laying the groundwork” to announce the whistleblower will not testify, “and to blame that on Republicans.”

 

“Schiff may not want the whistleblower to testify anymore because the whistleblower would have to reveal more details about this cooperation with Schiff,” the Republican source told the DCNF.

What a joke!  

 

Pelosi wants to put the country through this turmoil by accepting a "rumor" as ample evidence.  

 

She and Schiff are most certainly dimms...

 

 

 


The joke is your article. It is someones opinion not fact based so has no value. It is from a far right source which has never told the truth on anything. Only the far right would think it is true. The National Security Adv of the time has told us this was like a drug deal and he wanted no part of it. Others have said the same thing under oath.  Shiff is correct you do not need to interview anyone as the person they are looking at has already on TV and phone transcript confessed he did it all. They say when you listen to the real call is is worse as they doctored what they released. The sad collection of people who prove the experts correct again in what they tell us about them, Just think as John Bolton said they support a President who makes drug type deals. The mob Boss in action.

There is no need to interview the whistleblower since the claims have been verified by the information released by Trump and Giuliani.

Snoopy - There is no need to interview the whistleblower since the claims have been verified by the information released by Trump and Giuliani.

To include, the many witnesses who are and have been in close working relationships with T&G and are now testifying of their experiences, knowledge and facts, that I'm pretty certain are also contributing further verification of both whistleblower's claims, and likely much more.
T&G, their lawyers, staffers and aides are scrambling every which way attempting to circumvent the law, the truth. To include, cowardly Rs seeking dark corners to hide in.

Review of the actual transcript verifies that the whistleblower's accusation was true and thus no "rumor" as you falsely claim jimc91.

And the "joke" resides in the attempt to evade that obvious fact!

DUMP TRUMP AND DITCH MITCH TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!

Not to worry, our Stable Genius president has confirmed every "rumor" without even being asked to do so. Then there is Rudy and his never ending blab-fest on any network that will take him. Watching this cast of crooks and enabling goons seal their own fate is like reruns of Benny Hill.

Once again, it is time to call out the regressives about the difference between the facts and what they post.  Schiff did not say they would not have to speak to the second whistle blower "at all" but "in person". Based on Trump's attempts to intimidate both of the Whistle Blowers, it may be better to allow the second to remain anonymous. 

 

Chalk up another unintended consequence for Team Trump and another not-quite-factual story by the regressives.
