This week, the democratic left launched yet another attack against the President, insinuating that his Department of Justice was somehow interfering with a whistleblower’s revelations.
The allegations but this particular whistleblower are still vague, but the gist is this: This particular whistleblower alleges that they heard the President “promise” something to another foreign leader that was an “urgent” national security concern. Upon this accusation being made, through the proper governmental channels, the whistleblower’s complaint was intercepted by the Director of National Intelligence on its way to Congress, possibly under the guise of “executive privilege”.
This has irked democratic Congressman Adam Schiff, unsurprisingly, prompting the vocal anti-Trump legislator to go on the offensive. Schiff has been insinuating that this is a “cover up”, and somehow proof of White House corruption.
Now, one former lawmaker is lashing out at Schiff, insinuating the the entire debacle is little more than a political stunt by the progressive politician.

Former South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy told “America’s Newsroom” on Friday that people have stopped sharing information with the House Intelligence Committee because its chairman, Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is the most “deeply partisan” member.
“When you put someone who is wrong as often as Adam Schiff is wrong and is as deeply partisan as he is, in charge of the intelligence committee, then no, you’re not going to share confidential information because Adam leaks like a sieve,” Gowdy said.<

While the contents of the whistleblower’s complaints have not yet been made public, the mainstream media has been speculating that the subject may be a phone call between President Trump and the Ukrainian government.
