Nunes Blasts Schiff For Prior Involvement With Whistleblower, Calls Impeachment “An Orchestrated Farce”

California Rep. Devin Nunes just dropped the hammer on Adam Schiff. Nunes responded to the bombshell news that Adam Schiff’s office had contact with the whistleblower before the complaint was filed.

Something Adam Schiff had denied before on multiple occasions even on camera – in other words, he got busted and now the fallout will be severe.

“We learn from the press today that Chm Schiff had prior knowledge and involvement in the WB complaint. He withheld this info from the American people and even from the Intel Cmte.

In light of this news, it’s hard to view impeachment as anything aside from an orchestrated farce,” Nunes tweeted.

From The Washington Examiner:

Bradley Moss, who is a partner to one of the whistleblower’s lawyers, Mark Zaid, told the Washington Examiner in a brief message that “sure” it would have been appropriate for Schiff to advise Nunes on what he had learned but added it was “not legally required.”

According to the report on Wednesday, a colleague of the whistleblower first went to the agency’s top lawyer to convey accusations that Trump abused his power by pressuring Ukraine’s president to investigate Joe Biden, a political rival.

Concerned his allegations would be ignored, the whistleblower then approached a House Intelligence Committee aide with the basic facts of the upcoming complaint. The aide then shared some of what the whistleblower said to Schiff but did not divulge the identity of the CIA officer, the report said.

Schiff’s office insists both the intelligence panel and the whistleblower followed proper procedure and that the whistleblower was advised to find a lawyer and file an official complaint.

Asked to react to the story during a press conference, Trump called it a “scam” and accused Schiff of helping the whistleblower write his or her complaint.

But don’t take our word for it – Sam Stein a reporter who is certainly a Democrat tweeted out:

“Schiff did appear to lie here in previously saying that his office had not spoken directly with the whistleblower. But if you care more about this stuff than the actual substance of the whistleblower complaint than you’re being a hack.”
