Must be nice to ‘run’ an investigation in such a way where you can try and remove a sitting president while protecting your own backside. Adam Schiff has definitely been very ‘careful’ about what he does and does not release to the public, and while we all know there has to be some very specific reason why … it’s hard to say for sure.

Until now.

Paul Sperry sent this tweet about Schiff withholding the transcript of ICIG Michael Atkinson from October 4 behind closed doors which lasted for eight hours.

EIGHT HOURS.

Gosh, that seems like a rather large chunk of testimony the American people should be made aware of, don’cha think? Especially if this is being done for the good of the country and stuff.

Huh, now why oh why would Schiff want to hide answers around his staff’s contact with the whistleblower? If he has nothing to hide you’d think he’d be front and center with that testimony.

Of course, we all know he has something to hide or he wouldn’t have done so much of this behind closed doors.

Well, the ICIG is in on the whole scam. When the transcript is released the reading between the lines is going to get really interesting.

IMHO, this impeachment is an extension of the Russiagate fiasco, and a transparent attempt to "change the subject". Frankly, given the parallels of this conspiracy with the previous conspiracies, it is likely just phase 2 of the Russia collusion hoax. It should be investigated by the DOJ, with the Schiff meetings, the whistleblower rules being changed, and the entirety of the rank smell coming from Ukrainegate.

The investigation of these conspiracies, should include thorough investigations of the Press. It's not a good thing for the press to overtly act so corruptly as they are in this matter. I want to know whom has subverted the press such as it is at current. At the bottom of all this is the fact that there is a lot of money swilling around in all of this graft, and it is likely the press violated their public trust in accepting bribes. Time to carefully investigate those press organizations which use public airwaves to peddle thier poison.

I can’t remember what the Panama Papers were all about except off-shore banking.

Of course he is in on it. Ciarmella came to him and said “I’ve got a second hand hearsay accusation, but I can’t submit it on this form which requires direct, first-hand knowledge.”

Atkinson replied “No problem. I’ll change the form for you to allow hearsay.”

who has subverted the press?

The Marxist professors in the journalism schools did that. Blame the Frankfurt School immigrants in the 1930s for subverting Western Civilization and launching the effort to get control of education.

See the face chart at 14.

Atkinson was moved from the deep state coup gang (where he worked under Carlin, Carlin who had been Mueller’s chief of staff) to the position of ICIG specifically to protect the coup gang.

Atkinson was put there to be their “backstop” in tradecraft parlance.

Ratchiffe should just leak it, like the democrats do. If the democrats are not bound by the law, neither are the Republicans.

Thanks. I’ve seen that excellent chart before...it really lays out all the relationships in this most recent sordid deep state episode.

There have been many such face charts for the Mueller investigation, the Ukraine corruption, etc. All of them ultimately trace back to Obama and the motivation to prevent Trump from shining light on all the extremely deep DC corruption.

Sounds like the Flynn treatment this time. Create a crime. Withhold Brady material, fight like the devil against the Court’s order to give exculpatory evidence to the defendant. Behind the scenes, threaten, intimidate, extort and blackmail to achieve your ends.
