This week can’t get any worse for Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff. According to a bombshell report, the left-wing whistleblower who accused President Trump of bribing Ukraine, did not tell the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) that he communicated with Schiff’s staff before the complaint was made.
Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge broke the news when she confirmed that ICIG Michael Akinson told lawmakers during a hearing that he had “no knowledge” that the whistleblower was in contact with Schiff and his staff.
This isn’t the only example of bad news Adam Schiff has recently received. On Thursday, Schiff had a huge “disappointing””setback” after former US Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker testified with congressional investigators.
“Former U.S. Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker on Thursday spent hours testifying with congressional investigators who are seeking to discover if he played any role in Trump’s efforts to obtain from Ukrainian officials information on the son of 2020 presidential hopeful Joseph R. Biden Jr.,” Roll Call reported.
Fox News reporter Brooke Singman noted: “NEW: per a source with knowledge of ongoing #Volker interview: ‘The information provided by Amb. Volker so far does nothing to advance @RepAdamSchiff theory of the case. Volker’s testimony seems to be a disappointing event –and likely a setback–for the #impeachment effort.’”
