Schiff Dismisses Republican Calls for Trump Whistleblower to Testify: ‘Redundant and Unnecessary’
House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said the whistleblower’s testimony in the impeachment inquiry against President Trump is both “redundant and unnecessary” as the inquiry, according to Schiff, has gathered enough evidence.
Schiff wrote in a letter to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the Intelligence committee, that testimony from the whistleblower isn’t relevant now.
“The impeachment inquiry, moreover, has gathered an ever-growing body of evidence—from witnesses and documents, including the President’s own words in his July 25 call record—that not only confirms, but far exceeds, the initial information in the whistleblower’s complaint,” Schiff wrote. “The whistleblower’s testimony is therefore redundant and unnecessary.”
Schiff then added that “the individual’s appearance before us would only place their personal safety at grave risk” after calls to unmask the anonymous person.

Senator Lindsey Graham says if the Whistleblower does not testify, impeachment is Dead on Arrival at the front door of the US Senate.
Congressman Adam Schiff has already denied the Republican request for the "Whistleblower" to testify in front of The House Committee !!
We all saw the actual wording in that House Resolution that said The Majority could stop any Republican witnesses and sure enough, Schiff has struck first 😃
Schiff says the WB's "testimony" would be redundant and unnecessary without even knowing the questions !!
What ARE Democrats so afraid of anyway ? 😀

I personally agree wholeheartedly.
My perspective is such that all the foul exposure will finally begin to surface. Well, in hope.
Schiff opened a can that can not resealed; IMO should not be repackaged ever again.
