Schiff Should Have Been Clear About Contact With Whistleblower

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has admitted publically that he should have been “much more clear” about the contact his committee had with the whistleblower who spurred an impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

Speaking on CBS’s Face the Nation last weekend, the California Democrat expressed regret for saying his committee hadn’t been in contact with the whistleblower when it actually had. Schiff was given four “Pinocchios” by the Washington Post fact-checker for saying last month that he and his panel “have not spoken directly” with the unnamed CIA officer.

“I should have been much more clear,” Schiff said on the venerable Sunday news program. “I was referring to the fact that when the whistleblower filed the complaint, we had not heard from the whistleblower. We wanted to bring the whistleblower in at that time, but I should have been much more clear about that.”

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Schiff, 59, did, in fact, know details about the whistleblower’s complaint against Trump before it was formally filed. The whistleblower reached out and made contact with one of the committee aides beforehand, who then told Schiff about the conversation, but reportedly didn’t reveal the whistleblower’s identity.

The complaint alleges that Trump improperly pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. Democrats initially said they were investigating whether a quid pro quo was involved, although Schiff said on Face the Nation, Sunday that a quid pro quo is not necessary for Trump’s request of Zelensky, to be an impeachable offense.

    Crooked slow Joe Biden shouldn’t through his worthless two cents into the ring it’s already coming to light that he was part of the crookedest and corrupt administrations in history and that he and his family profited from his political favor pedaling. He is definitely not going to win his primary hell Obama himself is staying far away from Biden, what does that tell you.

    What you mean is he shouldn’t have lied about it. He wasn’t unclear. He said he’d had no contact with him.

    Well, that’s not a very professional way of explaining
    An error when apparently since it involves so much desperation on impeachment.
    I still don’t think a whistleblower exists, shiffty needs to clear this lying up before the 20/20 election.
    President Trump will have a field day with this one.
    Plus intelligence communication has all but stopped concerning this whistleblower, and that says a lot.
    When you have someone with damming evidence, it’s usually a very quick process, but none of this is out in the open.
    It’s like a invisible moment, and it’s very clear…..and none existent.

    Schiff is the one who should be on trial. He is nothing but a scumbag, a traitor, a shyster, and should be impeached and tried, convicted and sent to a non-federal prison for life. I was a democrat for all of my adult life. Served in Johnson’s Administration, Kentucky Cabinet, etc. I voted for Mr. Trump and have changed my Registration to Republican.
    The Democrats have turned into baby killers, socialism, and anti-America. We have several Republican Congressperson who only serve as reapers of the harvest rather than fulfill their obligations to the Electorate. Ryan, former Speaker of the House, Mit Romney, a crybaby, etc. The Republicans held control over the three (3) branches of Gov’t.
    Everything that has been good for the USA, President Trump has unilaterally made it happen without 100% of the support from the Republicans and 0% from the Democrats. In fact, he has performed admirably without any support from the Democrats, the obstructionists.

    Hello, I just wanted to comment that Adam Shifft is just filtering the conversation, between President Trump and Ukraine’s President, through his dirty conscience. As dirty glasses make you see spots on a sparkling clean garment, his dirty conscience makes an innocent, perfect conversation, sound corrupted.

    He should have been “more clear”?? This guy, through the whole Russian Hoax has proven that he wouldn’t know a huge, important lie (as in not how big a crowd was) if it smacked him in the face. Why does he maintain such a prestigious position with Nancy and with the Press?? This guy should be censured if congress had more than an ounce of integrity for the stunt he pulled to kick off the Committee hearing he heads on the “Impeachment Inquiry”!!!

    Let us be pragmatic. From now on, anything Schiff mumbles, the opposite is true.

    “Should have been more clear?” Schiff was perfectly clear-he lied when he said neither he nor his team had had contact with the whistleblower.
    It is long past time for Congress to censure him. For two and a half years we heard him repeatedly say he had SEEN the evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia. Perhaps he forgot to turn that ‘evidence’ over to the Mueller team.
    Pelosi declared a Trump ‘impeachment inquiry’ and made Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee the lead Committee despite the fact that never before in our history has an impeachment inquiry started anywhere but the House Judicial Committee. That was done because all interviews are conducted in secret. Republicans on that committee face serious legal repercussions if they reveal anything yet repeatedly we have seen ‘leaked’ testimony-every bit of which has been negative for President Trump.
    This whole thing is staged to replicate the effect Mueller’s investigation had on the 2018 elections.
