Adam Schiff lied about the whistle blower undermining the credibility of the impeachment investigation. Politicians have an issue with the truth, and the deception is bipartisan. Here is more from The Washington Post about Adam Schiff's 4 Pinocchio lie on the whistleblower:
Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.), chairman of the Intelligence Committee, has spearheaded the impeachment inquiry with diligence and determination since an anonymous whistleblower emerged with allegations of presidential pressure on Ukraine. But Schiff stumbled early on when he told MSNBC: “We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to.”
That turned out to be false, as the whistleblower had approached a House Intelligence Committee staff member for guidance before filing a complaint with the Intelligence Community inspector general. We gave Schiff Four Pinocchios. It’s quite possible this article was so widely read in part because the White House kept tweeting about it.
