Big news: the entire story could be flipping on the anti-Trump whistleblower at the center of the Trump-Ukraine controversy.
Multiple top Republicans in the House of Representatives wrote an open letter to House Intelligence Chairman – and blisteringly anti-Trump Democrat – Adam Schiff.
In the letter, the Republicans rebuked Schiff for not having the whistleblower testify before them – a review which should be considered a critical part of their clear constitutional duties.
Going a step further, the Republicans also confirm that their own investigation has collected information which goes against the whistleblower’s bombastic claims.
Reps. Devin Nunes, Jim Jordan, and Michael McCaul say that other information makes it clear that the whistleblower’s claims are at odds with the Trump administration’s official summary of the call.
The three congressmen specifically wrote:
“We are surprised by your announcement that the Committees will not receive testimony from the anonymous intelligence community employee whose complaint initiated the so-called impeachment inquiry… As the so-called impeachment inquiry gathers information that contradicts the employee’s allegations, we ask that you arrange for the Committees to receive public testimony from the employee and all individuals he or she relied upon in formulating the complaint.”
We all know that the purpose of the “inquiry” isn’t to ask questions in good faith. The purpose of the inquiry is to create political hay for the Democrats in the run-up to the 2020 presidential election.
It’s sad, but this has become the default of politics in our chaotic time.
