IG Can’t Account For 18-Day Gap Between Trump’s Ukraine Call And WB's Complaint
Tick tock

quote:

Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson couldn’t explain why it took more than two weeks for the whistleblower to file the complaint.

Fox News reported that during Atkinson’s congressional testimony, he could not explain the delay in reporting “ or when exactly the whistleblower contacted a key Democrat’s staff, sources familiar with the testimony told Fox News.”

Atkinson also said during his testimony, according to Fox sources, that the whistleblower did not disclose that he or she had contact with Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) office prior to filing the complaint.

Schiff said multiple times that he did not know the identity of the whistleblower and that neither he nor his staff had spoken to the whistleblower. The Washington Post gave Schiff Four Pinocchios for his claims, since it was revealed that the whistleblower reached out to Schiff’s staff prior to filing the complaint. The whistleblower did not acknowledge that this contact had been made, in possible violation of the law. The whistleblower did, however, acknowledge to Atkinson that he or she was a registered Democrat and had a prior working relationship with one of the Democratic primary candidates, though it is unclear which one.

That's easy.

It took Lawfare that long to prepare the brief.


Next question?

Exactly. He had to roll it by Schiff first then the lawyers had to put it together.

And Schiff had to proof it. Attorney's always change something in a written document. Multiple attorney's writing a 5 page document takes time....

Since subpoenas are being handed out like candy, why not subpoena the people who wrote the document and ask them some questions?

Nope.
It was timed to land on acting-DNI Maguire's desk on day 1 of his tenor.
That's why.

isnt the bigger question why they backdated or changed the whistleblower standards of reporting?

Can't McConnell and another member issue a subpoena?

Do Whistleblower, who are supposed to report directly to the IGIC, get attorney/client privilege, to write up a WB complaint, sounds odd and is there precedence?

Because the fake-inquiry doesn't give the GOP subpoena powers....and Schiff certainly isn't going turn himself in. He's already lied about meeting the WB, multiple times.

Not sure if serious, trying to be clever, or ignorant??

Easy, they needed time for those "supporting" NYT and Politico articles, that they sourced themselves, to seem like they did their own investigation to find "independent" corroboration.

I mean, it would look fishy if the articles, Schiff's tweet, and the complaint came out at the same exact time with the same exact incorrect details.

But coming out 2-3 weeks apart, with the same exact incorrect details, well that means the sources must have been independent... right?

LOL

Seeing that ignoring procedure is the new norm, why not just wing it??

Congress has the power to initiate the impeachment process...Congress does. Not a couple of members with big mouths and dramatic statements.
Until a vote is taken, it is not known if congress actually does support the action.
Pelsois shtick about "The rules don't say we have to take a vote, blah blah, is third grade nonsense.

The "rules" also don't specifically say that members of congress have to wear cloths either.
It's just common sense.
You're too clever by half?
