Surprise! The Whistleblower Sent His Complaint to Adam Schiff First, Who Then Gave Him "Advice"

A source tells me that this probably means the whistleblower is not a whistleblower, but just a leaker. To be a whistleblower, you have to go through prescribed steps.

Running to the hyperpartisan Adam Schiff to preview your info op isn't one of those steps.

The Democratic head of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, learned about the outlines of a C.I.A. officer's concerns that President Trump had abused his power days before the officer filed a whistle-blower complaint, according to a spokesman and current and former American officials.

The early account by the future whistle-blower shows how determined he was to make known his allegations that Mr. Trump asked Ukraine's government to interfere on his behalf in the 2020 election. It also explains how Mr. Schiff knew to press for the complaint when the Trump administration initially blocked lawmakers from seeing it.

Before going to Congress, the C.I.A. officer had a colleague convey his accusations to the agency's top lawyer. Concerned about how that avenue for airing his allegations was unfolding, the officer then approached a House Intelligence Committee aide, alerting him to the accusation against Mr. Trump. In both cases, the original accusation was vague.

The House staff member, following the committee's procedures, suggested the officer find a lawyer to advise him and file a whistle-blower complaint.
The aide shared some of what the officer conveyed to Mr. Schiff.

Remember when Fred Fleitz and others reported that, based on their long experienc in national security and with whistleblowers, the "whistleblower" complaint did not read like any real whistleblower's complaint, but like something written by a Democrat lawyer for political impact?

Well, there you go. It reads like it was written by a partisan Democrat legislative aide because it was written by a partisan Democrat legislative aide.


A spokesman for Schiff says that it's a "common occurrence" for "whistleblowers" to contact his committee.

Well I have no doubt that it's quite a common occurrence for deep state operatives to coordinate with Adam Schiff. That doesn't make it legal, and, per my source, it strips away the whistleblower protections this mere leaker and #Resistance operator would have under the whistleblower statute.
