Adam Schiff knew about the whistleblower in advance, may have helped write the complaint

Katherine Herridge (FOX) reporting that the WB did NOT disclose contact w Schiff/Committee staff...so IC IG never looked into contacts.
This means WB had to lie on the disclosure form.

Ahhhhhhh....now I see where you are going with this.

You see, if you drop the knee jerk accusations and just ask me directly what's bothering you we might even have a contructive dialogue..

So the latest loophole is Biden is not running for presidency so Trump requesting foreign nations to dig up dirt is not against the law...

I like it! Very smart actually..

You think it will stick? (Sincere question)

Peace

We are a democracy, but not a "direct" democracy where the people all vote as a mob. We are a representative Democracy where a federation of states elect representatives to represent them in government, thus a Federal Republic.

So, we are both a democracy AND a Constitutional Federal Republic. We are just not a direct democracy, because that would cut most states out without representation, and a mob in a only a very few states would always rule...mob rule.

Yeah....there has been a lot of emphasis on the Presidential Candidate thing. I could see this being used as a easy out but I dont think Trump wants a easy out....he wants to bring actual corruption to light.

"He (Adam Schiff) knew long before, and he helped write it, too." Trump said at a news conference (When D.J.T. "suggested without evidence that Schiff may have helped compose the whistleblowers complaint")

"An attorney for the whistleblower rebutted Trump's claim - Absolutely not,' attorney Mark Zaid said." "Zaid said there was no contact between the whistleblower's legal lawyers and Congress until weeks after the complaint was filed with the intelligence community's Inspector General."

"A spokesman for the House Intelligence Committee, Patrick Boland, said, 'Like other whistleblowers under Republican- and Democratic-controlled committees, the whistleblower contacted the committee for guidance on how to report possible wrongdoing within the jurisdiction of the intelligence community.'"

"At no point, Boland said, 'did the committee review the complaint in advance.'"

Sounds like the WB attorneys and Schiff forgot to get together to get their stories straight. So Schiff's people say the WB approached them and the WB attorneys says they didn't.....one of them is not telling the truth.

Actually, rereading that, it appears the attorneys are trying to distance themselves.

Thanks for that eloquent reply..be interesting to see how it turns out.

Is that hearing with "whatshisname" still in progress that was scheduled for today. The hearing with Volker didn't result in a whole lot, did it?

Yeah can't blame you for not being on top of this but Germany is already looking for getting back at that by placing tariffs on US stuff...

I'll dig up the links for you.

Last I checked, Shiffy boy was not one of the WB legal lawyers. So, this statement is true, but still does not clear Shiffy.

no worries
point being something from 15 years ago is in no way the current potus's fault
how he deals with it going forward....sure

as to the "trade war"
not really worried to much about that myself
I am not really interested in vw's,bmw's ,or mercedes benz automobiles
that being the largest import from your nation
btw, has that emmissions scandal from vw blown over yet?
