Adam Schiff spokesperson forced to admit to misleading statements in whistleblower drama

Schiff cannot seem to distance himself from controversy this week.

All eyes have been on Adam Schiff this week as the Democrats’ “formal impeachment inquiry” continues to ravage the national psyche.

The announcement of this latest maneuver against the President has been somewhat confusing for the Republican party, as there was no denying that the left was already engaged in a fairly serious investigation into several facets of the President’s personal and political life over the course of the last few months.  This latest semantic distinction seems to be all for show, and has prompted calls to better understand what the Democratic party is up to behind the scenes.

To that end, we have learned that House Intel Chair Adam Schiff had made contact with a supposed “whistleblower’s” team in the days preceding the official filing of their complaint regarding the President’s behavior – something that the Representative originally denied.

An official with the House Intelligence Committee was forced to clarify Chairman Adam Schiff’s remarks on Sep. 17 that “[w]e have not spoken directly with the whistleblower” in light of evidence the committee had done so.

The New York Times reported Wednesday afternoon that Schiff “learned about the outlines of a C.I.A. officer’s concerns that President Trump had abused his power days before the officer filed a whistle-blower complaint.”

That complaint was sent to Schiff and Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Richard Burr (R-NC) on August 12.

As Breitbart News and others noted earlier on Wednesday, Schiff had claimed on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Sep. 17 that “we” had never spoken directly to the so-called “whistleblower.” But the “complaint” sent by the so-called “whistleblower” was dated more than a month before Schiff’s MSNBC appearance — and the Times report claimed that “[t]he C.I.A. officer approached a House Intelligence Committee aide” days before sending the letter.

Schiff has been at the center of the whistleblower controversy as of late, after he performed a fictional conservation between President Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart during official Congressional testimony just days ago.
