  1. All they have to do is bring in ADAM SCHIFF for a hearing. He’s been MANUFACTURING this scenario, just like the dems did for the KAVANAUGH/FORD issue. SCHIFF HAS BEEN WORKING THIS SINCE JULY! POTUS IS THE VICTIM HERE – SCHIFF IS THE CULPRIT.

  2. I’d bet it all on the fact this is just another deep state attempt to smear Trump and try to take him down just before the IG and Barr’s investigations results are fully released soon. People will be charged and the Obama era conspiracy against trump exposed.

  3. No, we don’t demand the ‘whistleblower’s’ sources, we demand the ‘whisteblower’s’ NAME! We have a right to know what Congress is up to in the impeachment coup. Are they planning on gathering ‘evidence’ from nameless, faceless bureaurats and represent it as facts? America will not stand for a Star Chamber impeachment show trial. NAME THE RAT!

  4. He keeps mentioning Giuliani. Rudy is just DYING to be subpoenaed. “Go ahead, make my day!” Rudy would LOVE to go head to head with Schifface.

  5. Who is responsible for maintaining ICIG whistleblower form? Process to authorize changes. Name names
