BREAKING: IC IG Michael Atkinson Reveals Whistleblower NEVER Told Inspector General He Contacted Schiff’s Committee

Adam Schiff

Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson appeared on Capitol Hill Friday for his second closed-door meeting with members of the House Intelligence Committee.

Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge reported that Mr. Atkinson revealed to lawmakers Friday that the ‘whistleblower’ never told him that he met with Adam Schiff’s committee staffers.

Via Fox News Congress reporter Chad Pergram: Colleague Catherine Herridge rpts ICIG Atkinson told lawmakers the whistleblower did not disclose to the ICI that he contacted Schiff’s committee. Atkinson said the whistleblower volunteered he was a registered Democrat

The IG said since he never knew the ‘whistleblower’ contacted Schiff’s staffers he never looked into, IG “had no knowledge of it.”

Ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and fellow intel panel member Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) said on Friday that Schiff should be disqualified because he is a “fact witness” in the whistleblower case.

Not only is Adam Schiff a “fact witness,” he seriously violated House rules because he didn’t share the classified info with Minority members of the House Intel Committee (such as Devin Nunes).

The New York Times reported on Wednesday that Adam Schiff learned about the Deep State CIA spy’s accusations against Trump over his phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky several days before the officer filed a whistleblower complaint.

For nearly two weeks Schiff kept the classified information to himself AND the whistleblower did not disclose to the Intel Community Inspector General that he contacted Schiff’s aides.

Schiff should be disqualified from his Chairmanship and he should be prosecuted for colluding with the Deep State CIA snitch to overthrow a duly elected president.
