Amateur screenwriter, Representative Adam Schiff, finally admitted what Republicans and Conservatives have been saying for weeks: the call transcript matters more than the “information” in the whistleblower complaint. To be clear, he is saying the real transcript is more important than the complaint information, not the transcript that he fabricated in a House hearing. The reason he is now backing down from using the whistleblower as the basis for his impeachment inquiry is that the whistleblower is refusing to testify.
“House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff indicated Sunday that the whistleblower at the heart of Democrats’ impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump might not testify over concerns about the person’s safety…Schiff (D-Calif.) said the whistleblower’s testimony might not be needed given that a rough transcript of the call with Trump asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for a “favor” — the centerpiece of the whistleblower’s complaint — is public.” – Politico
As previously pointed out, President Trump has used the term “do me a favor” countless times. In fact, President Obama even used “do me a favor” in his speeches quite frequently as well. Making an impeachment attempt based on this “fact” obviously is a purely political attack.
With the leader of the impeachment movement finally admitting that the transcript matters more than the politically biased opinion of the “whistleblower”; hopefully we can move on from this phony impeachment inquiry.
