"A lawyer for the whistleblower who raised alarms about Trump's dealings with Ukraine says his client has offered to answer written questions
submitted by House Republicans.
The surprise offer was made to Rep. Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee. It would allow Republicans to ask questions
of the whistleblower, who spurred the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry, without having to go through Schiff.
Attorney Mark Zaid tweeted Sunday that the whistleblower would answer questions directly from Republican members "in writing, under oath & penalty of
perjury," part of a bid to stem escalating efforts by Trump and his GOP allies to unmask the person's identity. Only queries seeking the person's
identity won't be answered, he said."
Democrats Prepare For Open
I've heard several people say if the identity of the whistleblower were known he would show up dead. A lot people sure end of dead around DC. If I
were the whistleblower I would not want my identity known until giving testimony under oath before Congress.
The article had some other interesting tidbits.
"The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, told The Associated Press on Friday that the three committees leading the
impeachment investigation plan to begin releasing transcripts of closed-door interviews as soon as early this week. "
"Schiff, D-Calif. said he hopes the testimony will eventually show "what the president did, why his misconduct is so serious" and how the
"machinery of government" was pressed to help Trump influence the 2020 election."
It may turn out that Trump is completely innocent. Or, what if Trump did use the "machinery of government" to help Trump influence the 2020
election? The laws states people in government cannot use government for their own personal gain. Is Trump exempt from having to follow the law or
It seems to me Republicans never answer the real question. If Trump is shown to have broken federal laws should he be held accountable and why not?
