[Ed. – Well, yeah, that would be a reason. The senators would be all over that, even if the media stonewalled it entirely.]
While presenting the Democrats’ case for impeachment on the Senate floor, lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) kept referencing 17 witnesses who testified during the House impeachment inquiry. But there were 18 of them. Schiff and the Democrats are refusing to release the testimony of Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, and according to Republicans who were present during Atkinson’s closed-door testimony, the reason the transcript hasn’t been released is because it proves both the whistleblower and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff did not tell the truth about their contact with each other.
Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo interviewed Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) on “Sunday Morning Futures” about the 18th transcript …
Ratcliffe[:] … “I was there … what’s in that transcript is that the whistleblower wasn’t truthful about his contacts with Adam Schiff.”
