At today’s impeachment inquiry hearing in the House Intelligence Committee, chair Adam Schiff claimed that he does not know the identity of the whistleblower. The White House then used a previous Washington Post fact check to show Schiff and his staff had indeed “spoken directly with the whistleblower,” in spite of Schiff’s claim to the contrary:
Four (4) Pinocchios.
That’s what Adam Schiff earned for his claim that "we have not spoken directly with the whistleblower." pic.twitter.com/zR8McgiyOD

We won’t be surprised if somebody in the MSM takes a “Republicans pounce” approach to reporting that, but CNN’s Jake Tapper opted to simply shine the light on somebody other than Schiff:

Well, that was a fast one-eighty away from Schiff:

.@jaketapper instead of addressing the claim about whether Adam Schiff lied…you instead are playing whataboutism and in a weird way, playing defense on behalf of Adam Schiff. This isn't your role. https://t.co/FSo4Ff7PBE

Maybe CNN can ask Schiff about his whistleblower claims the next time he’s on pushing the Democrats’ ever-evolving narratives of the day.
