What exactly did Schiff know about the whistleblower complaint and when did he know it?

The following is an excerpt from Blaze Media’s daily Capitol Hill Brief email newsletter:

News broke Wednesday afternoon that House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff received information about the CIA whistleblower’s complaint at the center of the ongoing Ukraine phone call controversy before complaint was even filed, raising even more suspicion about Democrat’s current impeachment efforts.

“This is looking more & more like a deep state scheme,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise tweeted about the story. “[Schiff’s] running the same playbook against @realDonaldTrump that Senate Dems ran against [Supreme Court Justice] Kavanaugh.”

The revelation led to criticism of Schiff, who said last month that “we have not spoken directly with the whistleblower” on national television. “Schiff lied,” a tweet from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy reads. “The question is why?”

An “Intelligence Committee official” later responded to the disparity, saying, “The Chairman could have been more clear –  he was referring to the Committee officially interviewing the whistleblower, and himself personally."

Regardless of what Schiff actually meant in September, this revelation leaves several new questions to be answered about what he knew and when he knew it.

“We need to know what Chairman Adam Schiff and his team knew, when they knew it, and what (if any) interactions or coordination he and his team had with this whistleblower before the complaint became abnormally public,” Rep. Mark Walker said Wednesday night. “This story stinks to high heaven.”
