Shifty Schiff Says Whistleblower May Not Even Testify Before Congress
Posted by: admin in Politics October 14, 2019

Rep. Adam Schiff, with the help of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has now unleashed a runaway freight train that he has no hope of stopping even if he wanted to. And with the way this impeachment odyssey is going so far, he may want to do just that. A lot of careers are going to be ruined by the time this whole thing is done with, but we don’t believe that Donald Trump’s will be among them. Much like the Russia hoax, the Ukraine hoax is collapsing as fast as gravity will allow, leaving Democrats like Schiff once again twisted up in their own web of lies.

On Sunday, speaking to CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Schiff has the audacity to suggest that the infamous whistleblower might not even need to testify before Congress.

“Republicans would like nothing better because they view their role as defending the president being the president’s lawyers,” Schiff snidely remarked. “They would love for one witness to be able to hear what another witness says so that they can know what they can give away and what they can’t give away.

“There’s a reason why investigations and grand jury proceedings for example, and I think this is analogous to a grand jury proceeding, are done out of the public view initially,” Schiff continued. “Now we may very well call some of the same witnesses or all the same witnesses in public hearings as well. But we want to make sure that we meet the needs of the investigation and not give the president or his legal minions the opportunity to tailor their testimony and in some cases fabricate testimony to suit their interests.”

Absurd. This is in no way a grand jury proceeding. This is an impeachment inquiry, whether formal or informal or whatever it is the Democrats think they’re doing. If it isn’t that, then it is a minor oversight matter that doesn’t deserve the attention it’s getting. But if this is impeachment, it needs to be handled like impeachment. If you’re going to accuse the President of the United States of a crime, then your witnesses ought to ---- well have the integrity to answer questions from Jim Jordan, don’t you think?

Ah, but that didn’t go so well when you put people like Michael Cohen and even Robert Mueller on the stand, did it? No, because when these cockroaches are exposed to the bright light of truth, they look like the frauds that they are. And then your “impeachment” nonsense will be exposed as a joke.

You can bet your last dollar that if the DEMs push this fiasco though the so called whistleblower WILL be called to testify. But it probably won't be in the house but rather in the senate where the GOP can call the shots. You can also expect Schiff, Cummings, Nadler, Comey, Strozk, Page, Clapper, Brennan etc... to all be called in to testify as well. That will be fun.

The "whistle blower" is completely irrelevant as far as impeachment and I can't stress this enough the phone call the whistle was blown on is in the wild.....released for public consumption...not a secret.....available for all.

Unless the republicans want to look into the whistle blower is completely useless. Nothing to offer to the democrats AT ALL.

I think both whistleblowers would be relevant but for different reasons. Since Schiff and others passed on false information, it would be useful to find out what each whistleblower actually knew, where they learned it and from who and who they spoke about it with in the process. I think that is a huge part of why the Dems won't call for an impeachment vote as it would expose their corruption. I'd love to see the Senate jump into this on their own but am not sure they can do that or not.

Instead of Schiff just settling to fine people, who fail to testify by signifying contempt of Congress in the latest impeachment process --- The House or Senate...in a bid to compel testimony, should exercise its "inherent contempt" authority and send the sergeant-of-arms out to arrest people and lock them up in the Capitol.

LOCK THEM UP...

Pretty obvious this whole charade is way over your head, the Senate has not a thing to do with it. Now be a good boy and stand in the corner.

I mean irrelevant for the Democrats case. Calling the whistle blower can only hurt the Dems now. Testimony from the whistle blower could be very advantageous to Trump.
