On Saturday, Republican Rep. John Ratcliffe revealed the real reason why House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is refusing to release a key transcript from Michael Atkinson’s testimony.
Ratcliffe explained in a tweet that he believes Atkinson revealed a key connection between the whistleblower and people close to Schiff himself.
“It’s because I asked IG Atkinson about his ‘investigation’ into the contacts between Schiff’s staff and the person who later became the whistleblower. The transcript is classified ‘secret’ so Schiff can prevent you from seeing the answers to my questions,” he said.
Ratcliffe was responding to a tweet from investigative reporter Paul Sperry who tweeted: “Why is Schiff still withholding transcript of ICIG Michael Atkinson’s Oct 4 closed-door testimony which lasted 8+ hours? He’s released 15 witness transcripts but is still hiding Atkinson’s.”
Although his impeachment hearings were a total bust, Schiff is going forward with impeaching President Trump anyways.
According to Breitbart, House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff is giving members of his committee only 24 hours to sign off on his bogus report where he recommends impeaching President Donald Trump.
