Shifty Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) now says that testimony from the intelligence community whistleblower at the center of the House impeachment inquiry against President Trump may no longer be necessary.
I’m telling you this dude has lost his freaking mind.
Pencil-neck told Margaret Brennan during an interview on CBS’s ‘Face the Nation,’ “Given that we already have the call record, we don’t need the whistleblower who wasn’t on the call to tell us what took place during the call,”
“Before the president started threatening the whistleblower ,we were interested in having the whistleblower come forward. Our primary interest right now is making sure that that person is protected,” he said.
Schiff acknowledged he initially supported the whistleblower testifying about the Aug. 12 complaint, which centered on a July 25 phone call Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, The Daily Caller News Foundation reported.
“Given that we already have the call record, we don’t need the whistleblower who wasn’t on the call to tell us what took place during the call, we have the best evidence of that,” Schiff said on “Face the Nation.” “It may not be necessary to take steps that might reveal the whistleblower’s identity to do that, and we’re going to make sure we protect that whistleblower.”
The Democrat has slowly pulled back his preference for the whistleblower to testify after it was revealed Oct. 2 that the CIA analyst had contact with a Schiff aide prior to filing the complaint Aug. 12.
In interviews leading up to the release of the whistleblower complaint, Schiff implied he had no insight into who the whistleblower was, or what they were alleging.
Margaret Brennan, the host of “Face the Nation,” did not ask Schiff questions about his office’s interactions with the whistleblower. She asked Schiff in the closing seconds of her show if he regretted saying in an interview Sept. 17 that “we have not spoken directly with the whistleblower.”
“We would love to talk directly with the whistleblower,” Schiff said in that interview.
Schiff said Sunday he should “have been much more clear” about his office’s contacts with the whistleblower.
Schiff acknowledged Sunday that he initially wanted the whistleblower to testify, but that he has changed his mind after Trump “started threatening the whistleblower and threatening others.”

Schiff noted Trump has referred to the unidentified whistleblower as a spy and traitor.
“Our primary interest right now is making sure that that person is protected. Indeed, now there’s more than one whistleblower, that they are protected,” Schiff said.
House Democrats have given indications that they were shifting away from pushing for the whistleblower’s testimony.
“Schiff may not want the whistleblower to testify anymore because the whistleblower would have to reveal more details about this cooperation with Schiff,” the Republican source told the DCNF.
JUST ANOTHER HOAX.
ADAM SCHIFF IS A PILE OF LIBERAL GARBAGE.
