Well, supposedly, according to that paragon of congressional truth, Adam Schiff, we now have at least two “whistleblowers” whose identity Schiff wants kept secret for “safety purposes.” Who knows how many more “whistleblowers” he may have lined up waiting in the wings, none of whom will ever be identified but all of whom may give “secret” testimony about Trump’s evil doings.
And the gullible public is just supposed to take Schiff’s word for all this? I may be a tad pessimistic about Schiff’s veracity, as I am still waiting to see that ton of evidence he supposedly had about Trump colluding with Russia before the 2016 election. For some reason Comrade Schiff never saw fit to show the public all this damning evidence he had on Trump. Why? Could it just possibly be that Schiff lied to us and never had any of this evidence he said he had and so he really can’t show us what he never had to begin with? At the risk of sounding as if I doubt Schiff, I wouldn’t take his word if he told me the sun would rise in the east tomorrow. The man is a partisan hack and that’s being complimentary to him!
As for the identity of the so-called “whistleblowers” we already know who one of them is. One of them is a woman named Fiona Hill, who was a member of the National Security Council–and an operative for George Soros. She was brought into the NSC by Council on Foreign Relations member, H. R. McMaster who Trump later fired–and who he never should have hired to begin with!
Now Schiff is telling us that one of the “whistleblowers” may not testify because of “safety” concerns. How is Schiff going to get this person’s evidence against Trump if they don’t testify? Ahh, I know–osmosis!
Schiff has said: “We do want to make sure that we identify other evidence that is pertinent to the (investigation)…It may not be necessary to take steps that might reveal the whistleblower’s identity to do that.” Translation of that–Trump will not have the opportunity to face his accuser as he should.
An article on Politico quoted Se. Kevin Cramer from North Dakota when he said: “”But the new precedent for impeachment is that we don’t like this president that just got elected, so we’re going to spend all four years trying to impeach him.” That sounds about where we are at. The Demoncrats, (and many Republicans) have been trying to deep six Trump since he got elected.
Rep. Lee Zeldin from New York said of this charade: “There should be a process, but instead what Adam Schiff wants is to get United States of America drunk on his favorite cocktail. There’s three ingredients. One is cherry-picking leaks, second is withholding facts, and three is just outright lying.” Again, that sounds pretty accurate.
And, on Fox News Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia claims that all of Schiff’s secrecy is “…due to the Democratic majority not wanting the public to know that the testimony does not support their narrative.” Collins says of the Demoncrats “They said we can’t win this in the public eye, so we’re going to take it behind closed doors.” Collins continued: “…so, in the last few days they have taken it behind closed doors, and Adam Schiff–who has trouble telling the truth, much less spelling it, but he’s a very good leaker, so what they did is take it behind closed doors, have testimony that I’ve heard from folks who were in the room that said these transcripts should be released completely because they defeat the entire narrative, but as long as he can keep it behind closed doors, then they leak out to the American people only what they want to leak out and this is why you have seen this progression at this point.”
Sounds as if Collins doubts Schiff’s sincerity at this point. Do you wonder why? Maybe he was waiting to see some of Schiff’s “Russian Collusion” evidence on Trump that I was waiting to see, and he never saw it anymore than I did.
So what Schiff expects of us deplorables is that he will conduct all his hearings in secret and the testimony will be in secret, as will all the identities of all these “whistleblowers” however many there may or may not be, and he will sit back and dribble out to us what he wants us to know–and we are supposed to believe that because he said it! To say that what we will get from Schiff will be nothing more than a huge pile to Texas cow chips is to understate his ability to prevaricate and obfuscate.
