Schiff is shaking in his boots…

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) on Friday sent a letter to Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) requesting that the House Intelligence Committee chairman testify as part of the impeachment inquiry.

In the letter, Nunes argued that Schiff should testify in lieu of the “whistleblower,” since the “whistleblower” went to Schiff’s staff before filing his complaint and since Schiff will not let the whistleblower testify.

In his letter to Schiff, Nunes wrote:

As the American public is now aware, in August 2019, you and/or your staff met with or talked to the whistleblower who raised an issue with President Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky. Although you claim that nothing inappropriate was discussed, the three committees deserve to hear directly from you the substance and circumstances surrounding any discussions conducted with the whistleblower, and any instructions you issued regarding those discussions. Given that you have reneged on your public commitment to let the committees interview the whistleblower directly, you are the only individual who can provide clarity as to these conversations.

He added: “Given your championing of such an arrangement two years ago, you should have no problem with you appearing before the three committees to discuss your interaction with the whistleblower.”

Schiff had initially denied that the “whistleblower” had ever spoken to him or his committee before he filed the complaint.

Nunes’s letter also noted that the House Intelligence Committee should not be taking the lead on the impeachment inquiry based on precedent.

“However, by now the American people know your desire to see the duly-elected president removed from office outweighs your sense of responsibility to running a functioning intelligence oversight committee,” Nunes wrote.

  1. Explain how a person can testify to what another person testified to under oath ?
    Have any of these so called Attorneys, even passed the Bar ?
    Do they understand the “Rules of Criminal Procedure” ?
    This is an Absolute disgrace.

  2. Schiff is totally corrupt. He claims to have veto power over any witness the Republicans want to testify. How is that a fair review of the “facts”. Then he will not let the so called Whistleblower testify. Everyone already knows who he is – the Dems left his name in one of the transcripts. The President attorneys / Republicans should, under a fair due process procedure, as would be allowed in court, be able to confront the accuser.
    Schiff doesn’t want him to testify to the fact that he and the Whistleblower colluded on the contents of the complaint before it was filed.

  3. When is any of the crooked democrats gonna be arrested for what they are doing tho our natio n. I am tired of them all walking Scott free not having to answer for their crimes I am tired of the b.s.. make them pay.
