One can only imagine what tremors are yet to strike our nation’s capital, as President Donald Trump faces the threat of a bitter and prolonged impeachment battle.
At the heart of the matter is a whistleblower complaint from within the White House that alleges, through second hand testimony, that Trump improperly engaged in mafia-like deals with Ukraine for his own personally-political gain.
The President has denied any wrongdoing, and has been overly forthcoming with documents related to the matter, but that has not been enough for the blood hungry Democrats.
No, they want it all. And it looks as though they may get it.
House intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff said Sunday that the whistleblower who filed a complaint about a call between President Donald Trump and Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky has agreed to testify before a congressional committee.
Appearing on ABC News This Week, the Democrat from California said House lawmakers had settled an agreement with the whistleblower’s lawyers to ensure that there are precautions to protect his or her identity during the testimony.
Schiff believes he hit the jackpot.
“That whistleblower will be allowed to come in without White House or DOJ lawyers to tell him or her what they can or can’t say,” Schiff said, comparing the situation to acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Mcguire’s testimony on the issue Thursday. “We are taking all the precautions we can to protect the whistleblower’s identity.”
Schiff’s confidence could come back to haunt him, however.
President Trump has been several steps ahead of the democrats during other recent alleged “scandals”, often bouncing back from the supposed brink of trouble stronger and bolder than ever.
If the White House isn’t attempting to block the whistleblower, it could be due to their own knowledge of just who much, or how little, such testimony could impact the proceedings.
