Adam Schiff may soon regret his latest effort to get Trump.
New details are emerging around the so-called whistleblower, and Schiff’s involvement is being called into question.
NYT: Adam Schiff Knew About Whistleblower Complaint Before It Was Filed
Well, this whole impeachment circus just got shadier. Piggybacking off what Katie wrote five days ago, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) knew about the whistleblower complaint a month ago and didn’t say anything.
Now, The New York Times is reporting that Schiff knew there was going to be such a report from a whistleblower before this person had formally filed the complaint. The person is reportedly a CIA agent.
They point to this report from the New York Times:
The Democratic head of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, learned about the outlines of a C.I.A. officer’s concerns that President Trump had abused his power days before the officer filed a whistle-blower complaint, according to a spokesman and current and former American officials.
The early account by the future whistle-blower shows how determined he was to make known his allegations that Mr. Trump asked Ukraine’s government to interfere on his behalf in the 2020 election. It also explains how Mr. Schiff knew to press for the complaint when the Trump administration initially blocked lawmakers from seeing it.
Before going to Congress, the C.I.A. officer had a colleague convey his accusations to the agency’s top lawyer. Concerned about how that avenue for airing his allegations was unfolding, the officer then approached a House Intelligence Committee aide, alerting him to the accusation against Mr. Trump. In both cases, the original accusation was vague.
The House staff member, following the committee’s procedures, suggested the officer find a lawyer to advise him and file a whistle-blower complaint. The aide shared some of what the officer conveyed to Mr. Schiff. The aide did not share the whistle-blower’s identity with Mr. Schiff, an official said.
This video is also very damning:
Shifty Schiff continually claimed that he had no contact with the "whistleblower."
Yet again, he is lying.
This is getting ridiculous. Adam Schiff needs to resign and be investigated!

It looks like he might be in deep Schiff.
