What do ATS members think?


I think you all have gone bat#### crazy with the hyperbole and the mischaracterization of everything in the OP.

At this point I really wouldn't expect anything less.

White House Ukraine Expert Sought to Correct Transcript of Trump Call
🐇 🥥

The phrases do not fundamentally change lawmakers’ understanding of the call, which was first reported by the C.I.A. whistle-blower whose complaint set off the impeachment inquiry.

I don't think


You could have just stopped right there and it would have been ok.




Did you read to the end of the sentence or did it fall out of your input buffer?

The English language has rules that make it work. You can't really play cut-ups and then imply that someone wrote something that they didn't.

Nothing has been labeled as "preliminary" 🐇 😃


Oh, it has to have a label.

Well, I'll label it 'preliminary' for you if you will allow it and I'll even allow you to label the impeachment process as 'a fake'.

Isn't this just the preliminary investigation portion of the proceedings?

I don't think that due process requiring discovery being shared to both legal teams takes place until just before the court case, which will be before Congress.


False. First of all, because Schiff decided to use a SCIF, the majority of U.S. representatives, nor a majority of Senators will not have access to the actual transcripts of what was said by the witnesses in the SCIF, and neither will they have access to any evidence used in the SCIF.


...
ACCESS
...
Access to SCIFs is normally limited to those individuals with appropriate security clearances.[3] Non-cleared personnel in SCIFs must be under the constant oversight of cleared personnel and all classified information and material removed from view in order to prevent unauthorized access.[4] As part of this process, non-cleared personnel are also typically required to surrender all recording, photographic and other electronic media devices.All of the activity and conversation inside is presumed restricted from public disclosure.
...

Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility(SCIF)

SCIFs are supposed to only be used in investigations or briefings in counter-terrorism ops, or other ops in which all evidence provided must remain a secret and cannot be released to the public. Schiff is the chairman, and since it is an impeachment they won't allow the POTUS, the VP, etc whom would back POTUS Trump from being in the SCIF, hence no one will be able to release what actually occurred in the SCIF. This means that Schiff is the only one which can claim whatever he wants was said/occurred in the SCIF, and no one will be able to deny or corroborate whatever Schiff claims. That is unless someone decides to leak, but Schiff has already threatened Republicans with prosecution if they do leak anything.

Second of all, POTUS Trump's own counsel is not allowed in a SCIF, so he cannot cross examine the witnesses the democrats are bringing, and as you can see Schiff doesn't want the witnesses from answering the questions from those Republicans.

During the close door proceedings by the House during the Clinton impeachment his counsel was allowed to cross-examine the witnesses, and to bring pro-Clinton witnesses for testimony.

These socialist dictators wannabe with the lying sack of Schiff at the helm are not allowing the POTUS to have due process.

This claim that "they will be able to cross examine the witnesses and bring their own witnesses later" is a lie, as anything said, or any evidence presented in a SCIF will ALWAYS be restricted information which won't see the light of day.


So, alleged criminals can camp in the FBI director's office if they are under investigation?

Damning testimony again today that indicate that the memorandum of the phone call was not complete which I have been saying.


Given how often you've been saying things and the perfect 0% accuracy of those things I think maybe we should wait for the process to play out before we swear in Pence.

They are asking questions to get the identity of the whistleblower. Those are the only questions they were told they could not ask.

Its ten minutes of reading and its a thirty minute call.


You have been wrong so much in the last 3 years, we couldn’t trust you to give us the correct time of day.
They were asking the whistleblower.....yes THE whistleblower, directly who he went to first with this supposed “damning” information, Scumbag Schiff said they couldn’t ask that.
They already know who the whistleblower is.
At 1:03 of the video, direct from Jim Jordan’s mouth.

Edit - Apparently they were asking Vindman who he went to with this information, that is what Schiff said they couldn’t ask.
Bottom line is Schiff is attempting to thwart the Rs line of questioning to his liking, that is not what the chairman of any committee is supposed to do.

What crime are you talking about?... You are claiming that Republicans must be criminals, that POTUS Trump is a criminal with no evidence proving so, and that not even Trump's own counsel should be able to cross-examine witnesses,, or bring his own witnesses...

During Bill Clinton's impeachment, which was done after a vote by the House and then the closed door investigation by the House, Clinton's lawyer was even allowed to question Barr...

People like you want to deny the POTUS due process because you are anti-Trump... I hope such a thing never happens to you...

Ah, so we have "gone bat crazy" for wanting due process to be afforded to the POTUS you hate?...
I wouldn't expect anything less from the likes of you...

But again, with all these "insiders" close to the phone call especially this one today, why didn't he or anybody else bring his version with him and submit it ?


What makes you think he and his lawyers didn't bring it?

Due process comes AFTER one has been charged with a crime. Has Trump been charged with a crime, yet?

The whistle blower had no first hand information.


That's not completely true. The whistleblower did have some first hand knowledge, but also had people report their concerns to him. Their names were in the official report, and now they're giving their testimonies through depositions to the relevant committees, behind closed doors.

This isn't "locker room" talk. This is national security protocol. The whistleblower was someone people reported to.

A 911 operator doesn't have first hand knowledge, but the person calling for help does.

You people want the whistle blower? I give you the whistle blower!



Aside from the distracting metaphors I get the impression the WB
is being questioned with a bag on his head.

the most rational answer =


One question that Schiff barred a witness from answering reportedly came from Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan who attempted to asked the initial anonymous “whistleblower” who they spoke with following the infamous July phone call between Trump and Ukrainian president.


schiff already knows who he spoke to - and the answer would raise more questions than it addressed

He couldn't answer the question truthfully without naming the whistle blower.

So why didn't "The Witness" just declare that ?

Oh He must have discussed this ahead of time with Mr SCIF !!!! 😎 😃
