As if Rep. Adam Schiff’s super-secret impeachment inquiry didn’t look like enough of a scam already, The Washington Examiner is reporting Thursday night that talks between the whistleblower’s legal team and Schiff’s camp have broken off, so it’s unlikely the whistleblower will testify after all.

The whistleblower whose complaint launched impeachment proceedings against President Trump is unlikely to testify to Congress, as talks have ceased between his legal team and committee leaders.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who has overseen depositions in Democrats’ impeachment proceeding, was initially eager for the whistleblower to testify before citing concern about the person being identified.
A source familiar with the discussions told the Washington Examiner that talks halted over potential testimony from the whistleblower and there is no discussion of testimony from a second whistleblower, who supported the first’s claims.
“There is no indication that either of the original whistleblowers will be called to testify or appear before the Senate or House Intelligence committees. There is no further discussion ongoing between the legal team and the committees,” the person said.
So there’s no testimony from the first whistleblower, who wasn’t even on the phone call and heard about it second-hand, or from the second whistleblower who can apparently back him up.

So let me get this straight: we are not permitted to examine the credibility, bias, and intent of the "whistleblower" whose complaint started this whole thing? And the Democrats and media are just fine with it? Run – don't just #WalkAway

So being able to cross examine your accuser no longer applies?

That's okay. He can be a sworn witness at the Senate trial. Should be fun.
— Jack Wade (@GKG_77) October 31, 2019
But he may get subpoenaed by the Senate. Wouldn't that be grand.

Because Schiff is afraid to reveal how is involvement unfolded.

Without the "whistleblower" or Shiff testifying under oath, this will remain a sham and a joke that all but the most ardent leftist will reject. These Dems are clowns.

Somebody doesn't want to get charged with treason for trying to overthrow the govt.

His testimony was NEVER going to happen once the R's got the right to cross examine him and record all of his contacts with Schiff's office BEFORE he went public. Nope.
No way Schiff was going to let that bag get opened.
Besides which, there is now a transcript of the call.
