Adam Schiff may be in the middle of a conspiracy, and that would mean he violated federal laws.


When is a whistleblower report not a whistleblower report? To former CIA officer John Kiriakou, when it reads more like a legal document.

Kiriakou — who has firsthand experience with the whistleblower process — appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show on Monday and told the host that President Donald Trump should ask for an investigation of the Central Intelligence Agency over the nature of the Ukraine whistleblower report.

Carlson began the segment by noting that he felt “in a bunch of cases, CIA employees are acting as kind of political operatives,” not just in the Ukraine whistleblower scandal but also in the Trump/Russia investigation.

“Oh, and it’s getting worse and worse as time goes on,” Kiriakou said.

“Just look at the whistleblower complaint — and I use the word ‘whistleblower’ in quotation marks here. You know, I made a whistleblower complaint in 1996 about an illegal campaign contribution. I wrote a memo, I sent it to the [inspector general], he sent it to the Federal Elections Commission, it was done.”

Yep, since that became law it's more of a legal practice now instead of breaking information. Anyone can use that law to file certain complaints and it gives them certain protections, it doesn't mean they are revealing secret information.

All this "whistleblower" did was lodge a complaint with no actual knowledge of anything.

The embarrassment over Schiff now includes the WaPo giving him 4-Pinocchios. And rumors are swirling that Pelosi may remove Schiff as Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

My own world
The Western Journal is a news and opinion website with story selection that always favors the right and is negative toward the left. I believe the IG and the ADOI

Maguire broke with Trump and his Republican supporters last week during an open hearing on Capitol Hill, defending the whistleblower and the intelligence committee watchdog who exposed contacts with Ukraine that could help lead to the President's impeachment.
"I believe that the whistleblower and the inspector general have acted in good faith throughout. I have every reason to believe that they have done everything by the book and followed the law," Maguire said while testifying before a key House committee.

What inconsistencies? There don’t seem to be any listed in your OP. Just whining that there is a whistleblower.

Pretty comical that the complain is that the whistleblower wrote the complaint too well.

I guess that’s what happens when the substance of the report has been corroborated. You have to nitpick about whatever silly thing you can think of.

Ugh! It sounded so professional and detailed! Sounds fishy to me! *burp* why does this legal document sound like a legal document?! *ball scratch*

Can we do something constructive here?

My memory of whistle blowers is that they possess special or rare information that exposes corruption or illegalities and that the information and testimony of that person is protected until such time as that information and testimony can be officially exposed and put into the public record.

If you can use the law to protect a group of people who share a bunch of shared opinions based on separate bits of information that are neither special nor rare, who is blowing the whistle? And what exactly are you protecting?

I know I am missing something. Can you fill me in?

Convince me that the changes in this law are not just another example of the politicization of the government.

i think if a "whistleblower" complaint went through "official channels,," you can basically assume it's fake, before you even start to consider that it's coming from a CIA agent, and the CIA's job is basically to foment foreign wars and entanglements and drum up support for them.

I think I described my concerns. And they have nothing to do with the nature of the complaint, but the classification of the complaintants as having a protected status.

Thanks for your non response.
