Adam Schiff Claims He Doesn't Know the Identity of the Whistleblower

The impeachment hearings started on Wednesday and almost immediately, far-left Representative Adam Schiff lied to the American public when he claimed that he did not know the identity of the anti-Trump whistleblower who started the entire impeachment inquiry.
This claim is blatantly false considering Schiff and his staff met with the whistleblower multiple times before the whistleblower complaint was even made.
Towards the beginning of the hearing, Republican Rep. Jim Jordan questioned Schiff, asking him when the committee would be able to vote to have the whistleblower testify considering they were the one who sparked the entire sham.
Jordan rightfully claimed that Schiff was the only member of congress who knew the identity of the whistleblower.
“I do not know the identity of the whistleblower, and I’m going to make sure that identity is protected,” Schiff lied.
The impeachment hearing got off to a heated start considering Rep. Devin Nunes immediately lashed out at the Democrats and their bogus inquiry.
The Representative started by hammering the Democrats for their Russia investigation which turned out to be a conspiracy theory.
“We’re supposed to take these people at face value when they trot out a new batch of allegations, but anyone familiar with the Democrat’s scorched earth war against President Trump would not be surprised to see all the typical signs that this is a carefully orchestrated media smear campaign," Nunes slammed.
He then denounced the entire impeachment process for how the witnesses were put through “a closed-door audition process” before the public hearings took place.
“They are trying to impeach the president for inquiring about Hunter Biden’s activities,” he said, “yet they refuse our request to hear from Biden himself.”
Nunes then narrowed his attention back to Schiff, mentioning his “fictitious rendition of the president’s phone call” and adding, “They clearly found the real conversation to be insufficient for their impeachment narrative.”
Nunes finished, “This spectacle is doing great damage to our country. It’s nothing more than impeachment process in search of a crime. And I yelled back."
While Nunes strongly defended the President, Schiff suggested that he was planning on bringing more bogus charges against President Trump, making it clear that he would be pursuing obstruction charges against him.
“Although we have learned a great deal about these events in the last several weeks, there are still missing pieces,” Schiff said. “The President has instructed the State Department and other agencies to ignore Congressional subpoenas for documents. He has instructed witnesses to defy subpoenas and refuse to appear. And he has suggested that those who do expose wrongdoing should be treated like traitors and spies.”
“These actions will force Congress to consider, as it did with President Nixon, whether Trump’s obstruction of the constitutional duties of Congress constitute additional grounds for impeachment,” he continued.
“If the President can simply refuse all oversight, particularly in the context of an impeachment proceeding, the balance of power between our two branches of government will be irrevocably altered. That is not what the Founders intended.”

“If this is not impeachable conduct, what is?” he said. “Does the oath of office itself — requiring that our laws be faithfully executed, that our president defend a constitution that balances the powers of its branches, setting ambition against ambition so that we become no monarchy — still have meaning?”
