Adam Schiff made a big declaration today: the infamous “Whistleblower” will apparently be de-cloaking and testifying before Congress soon.
My only question: will this be the actual whistleblower, or just someone they’re putting up to the task?
I know what my money is on.
Dog and pony show?
Is the Whistleblower even a real person?
Was it one actual person or just a bunch of rogue deep state actors all working together and publishing a document that was clearly drafted by a team of high-paid lawyers under the guise of a “whistleblower”?
That’s what I’d like to know.
Kind of like in the Bible when the Demon says “I am Legion.”
He’s not saying his name is Legion, he’s saying there are hundreds of demons all working together and they work together as one “legion”.
Get it now?
Anyway, that’s just my rant.
I guess we’re going to find out a whole lot more very soon according to “Liddle” Adam Schiff:
Here are more details, from the USA Today:
The whistleblower who filed an anonymous complaintabout President Donald Trump asking Ukraine to investigate a political rival has reached an agreement to testify before Congress, Rep. Adam Schiff announced Sunday.
Talking with ABC News' "This Week," Schiff, the Democrat who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, said the whistleblower would testify "very soon" and the only thing standing in the way was getting security clearances for the attorneys representing the whistleblower so they could attend the testimony.
The whistleblower, whose identity has not been made public, revealed deep concernthat Trump “used the power of his office” to solicit Ukraine’s help to discredit one of his main political rivals, former Vice President Joe Biden.
The complaint went on to detail efforts by senior White House officials to later "lock down" access to all records of the July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyin which Trump urged his counterpart to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
The whistleblower's concerns were the tipping point for House Democrats, who formally launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump this week after months of investigating the administration and conduct of the president.
Schiff did not outline a date for testimony and the whistleblower's attorneys said in a statement that they continue to work with the House and Senate about finalizing logistics, adding no date has been set.
And from Vox:
Rep. Adam Schiff said Sunday the whistleblower at the center of a growing scandal surrounding President Donald Trump will testify before the House Intelligence Committee “very soon.”
That whistleblower filed a formal complaint alleging Trump attempted to use “the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election.” Reporting identified that country as Ukraine, and the solicitation to be a request to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, who is currently a Democratic candidate for president.
Trump has acknowledged asking Ukrainian leaders to investigate Biden, arguing — without evidence — the former vice president worked to shield his son, Hunter Biden, from corruption investigations in that country. The White House has released a rough transcript of a conversation between Trump and Ukraine’s president that contains the request, but Trump maintains he has not done anything wrong. Nevertheless, the whistleblower’s allegations have spawned an impeachment inquiry in the House of Representatives.
The whistleblower’s testimony could shed light on a number of questions that still surround the complaint, including: who gave him information about the alleged solicitation (the complaint states the whistleblower learned of the matter from officials with direct knowledge of the president’s conversations, but that he did not witness the ask firsthand); what knowledge the whistleblower has of follow-up conversations between the US and Ukraine; and if he can add nuance to the allegation that the Trump administration worked to suppress potentially problematic presidential conversations a number of times.
Schiff said on ABC’s This Week that he expects the whistleblower to share information helpful to the committee’s ongoing investigation. “That whistleblower will be allowed to come in without a minder from the Justice Department or from the White House to tell the whistleblower what they can and cannot say; we’ll get the unfiltered testimony.”
