Adam Schiff knew about the whistleblower's complaint before the whistleblower filed it

Adam Schiff knew about the whistleblower's complaint before the whistleblower filed it

Shortly after President Trump called the impeachment effort a "coup", his re-election campaign on Wednesday, Oct. 2, released a new advertisement with the same title, accusing Democrats of carrying out a "coup".

"He knew long before and he helped write it too", added the President.

New York Times reporter Matthew Rosenberg clarified the newspaper's reporting in response to the House GOP leader's tweet, saying that it showed no evidence of Schiff working with the whistleblower.

The whistleblower, recognized as a Central Intelligence Agency officer, first had a colleague contact the company's high lawyer, along with his worries in regards to the July 25 cellphone name, the Instances reported.

However that top spy lawyer then contacted officials in the White House and the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel. The staffer did not share the figure's identity with Schiff.

During a meeting in the Oval Office, Mr. Trump said either the whistleblower fabricated details of the July 25 phone call, "or the person giving the information to the whistleblower was dishonest".

The World Trade Organization (WTO) plays a vital role in enforcing the global trade rules and resolving disputes between nations. Stock markets around the world, which were already down on concerns for the world economy, added to their losses on the news.

What we know of Trump is that when he feels most in jeopardy and most cornered, he retreats into his worst instincts - namely, bullying and paranoia. Maybe they're getting better, ' he continued.

Trump conceded, however, that there was value in protecting the identity of whistleblowers in some cases, stating: "I think a whistleblower should be protected if the whistleblower's legitimate". "I'd go a step further; I think he probably helped write it. OK?"

"I think it's a scandal that he knew before", President Trump said about the report. That's a big story. With 'Shifty Schiff, ' and [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and all of them - we'll see what happens. Trump held up a copy of the report, which he said he'd just been handed.

The committee had no role in the writing of the complaint and the whistleblower shared only vague allegations about the complaint with the committee aide, according to sources familiar with the matter. Trump's lawyers have suggested the whistle-blower had legal help in drafting the complex compliant that is sprinkled with Latin and legal phrases.

"Like other whistle-blowers have done before and since under Republican and Democratic-controlled committees, the whistle-blower contacted the committee for guidance on how to report possible wrongdoing within the jurisdiction of the intelligence community", a spokesman for Schiff said.

House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings in a memo notified committee members Wednesday that the panel, in consultation with the Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees, will issue a subpoena to the White House on Friday, requesting Ukraine-related records. Schiff spokesman Patrick Boland insisted to the Times that the early interaction between the whistleblower and the committee was standard procedure in which, the whistleblower was advised to find legal counsel and contact Inspector General Michael Atkinson.
