Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 04, 2019

On Sept. 17, a week before the whistleblower's complaint was made public, Schiff was asked if he had heard from the whistleblower and if he wanted to. "We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower," Schiff said. "We would like to. But I'm sure the whistleblower has concerns that he has not been advised, as the law requires, by the inspector general or the director of national Intelligence just as to how he is to communicate with Congress, and so the risk for the whistleblower is retaliation."

The New York Times revealed that Schiff, the committee chairman, had indeed learned about the outlines of the whistleblower's concerns days in advance. While it was not publicly known that Schiff's committee had communicated with the whistleblower ahead of the complaint's filing, Schiff knew the truth. When given the chance to say that the whistleblower had reached out to a committee aide, he did not.

WashPo gave Schiff 4 Pinocchios and Politifact rated it False.

Pretty rough assessment from WashPo given their DNC sympathies.

FakeLawyer has got "major wood" for Schiff.
Schiff must be doing something right because he's living rent free in your tiny brain.

ROC's been all 'rah rah' for impeachment. Well, he got his wish.

What Trump's done is akin to him shooting someone on 5th Avenue with cameras to record it and oodles of witnesses.

To quote George Tenet, "SLAM DUNK"

Majority of lefty drudge retorters in this thread ignoring the false claims of Schiff and instead try to attack, not even the source article but the drudge poster who brought the article for discussion.
Just another example of partisan hypocrisy in play. Obvious to those who choose to look.

Ferret Face Schiff's flying schif show has had all the impact of a marshmallow. After years of him promising some great revelation about the Russian collusion myth and delivering nothing, the press should have been a little more cautious running with this ball of bovine excrement.

Funny how a couple weeks back Republicans thought it was cool to lie to the media
They haven't been complaining about Trumps 12000 lies

Schiff should have declined to comment.

Funny how today, people who rightly point out Trump's lies completely ignore Schiff's.
Is there any reason for that other than partisan hypocrisy?

Schiff didnt lie. He omitted details on how much he knew about an ongoing investigation of a corrupt Trump administration that lies every day.

It is smart for a prosecutor to let the criminals tell lies about their actions when you have evidence of their crimes.

As a bonus the triators will start to blame each other as their lies are revealed. It is already happening.

Actually, he did lie when he said that he had no previous knowledge of the whistleblower's claims, what you are describing is also a Lie by Omission, but all politicians do that regularly. Of course, Trump lies on a daily, if not hourly basis, but what Schiff did was still a lie and that is not helpful for him as Chair of the Intelligence Committee that is tasked with the impeachment inquiry.

Lying by omission is when a person leaves out important information or fails to correct a pre-existing misconception in order to hide the truth from others.
You admit that he's lying immediately after claiming he didn't lie. Any particular reason?
