Acting DNI Joseph Maguire Congressional “Whistleblower” Testimony – 9:00am Livestream…

You know the Democrats had a pre-planned strategy to use the “whistleblower” complaint, because Adam Schiff has the production scheduled for 9:00am public hearing today.

Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire is appearing before the House Intelligence Committee to face lawmakers’ questions about his handling of the hearsay whistleblower complaint relating to a phone call between President Donald Trump and the president of Ukraine.  The transcript of the non-controversial call was released yesterday.

Lawmakers also received their copy of the 6-page complaint Wednesday afternoon after criticizing the White House and Department of Justice for complying with Office of Legal Counsel guidance and handling recommendations. The declassified complaint, consisting of hearsay and political media spin, is expected to be released to the public today.

In the Justice Department’s OLC opinion, they point out that ICIG Atkinson’s internal justification for even accepting the whistleblower complaint was poor legal judgement.  [See Here]  I would say Atkinson’s decision is directly related to his own risk exposure:

      Psycho Schiff. You can see it in the eyes. These aren’t the eyes of an enlightened champion, but instead the eyes of a paranoid pawn, a cornered rat, a desperado waiting for a train.

      Makes me wonder what Ed Buck and Epstein have on him.

    According to the NYTimes, the ‘whistleblower’ is a CIA officer detailed to the White House.

    This hearing was a disaster for PDJT and the Truth.

    Schiff’s opening remarks that PDJT told the Ukraine Gov. to manufacture dirt on Biden went unchallenged for far too long. It was a baldfaced lie but it lived long enough to make an impact. The Repubs were not prepared.

    The Dem goal was not the truth, but compelling sound bites the MSM could use for days if not weeks. Millions of people will only hear what Schiff said and will believe it.

    Even our esteemed radio pundits didn’t hammer this in their first few minutes. It took some caller outrage to wake them up. The truth is on the Repub side but the communications war is being lost.

    There’s a lesson here. When your enemy is fighting for their lives, and is out to get you anyway they can, you need to strike while the iron is hot, stay constantly on offense and keep them back on their heels. The Repubs have lost the moment, due in large part to their belief that they had to dot every “i” and cross every “t” before outing the criminals. Perfect is the enemy of good.

    Even my beloved President is not on his game. His impromptu pressers are stressing the economy, minority employment, etc. All true but not the point in this news cycle.

    We gave just given them the opportunity to create “Steele Dossier/Obstruction” II. This will not go away soon.

    Shame on those who had the opportunity to put the final nails in the Sedition coffin and did not do so.

      Not sure how you have come up with this opinion, which seems pretty off-kilter, the President has been pummeled mercilessly by the press, the Deep State, Congress, and everyone else from the center all the way through the left continuum through infnity. He has been able to withstand all that, and get a shitload of stuff done with 3 extremities tied behind him.

        Very classy and thoughtful response, Rose.

        Slither?

        My parents taught me that when someone resorts to name calling, they really have nothing to say – no argument to make.

        Please tell me which Republican, in real time, forcefully challenged Schiff’s clear misrepresentation (i.e., lying) about PDJT demanding “dirt” be “dug up”. Clue. No one did. They let it just lie there.

        Ditto re: no mention of Biden’s bribe admission on video tape.

        And many more missed opportunities to forcefully correct the record on the spot.

          I too was very disappointed in the Republicans. Where the hell were they today and why did only a few fight back. Your right though, Adam Schitt should have never been allowed to get away with the lies he told and not one Republican got in his face about it. If Republicans don’t learn how to fight back and play dirty like the Democrats, we are screwed.

            Maggie I agree. Every time Lewandowski had a great response some Democrat would interrupt and call for a “Point of Order” same when Republicans were grilling the loathsome faux preacher Sharpton! I didn’t listen to the hearing so I don’t know if that interrupting technique was used by the Republicans sounds like they didn’t, to bad!

          Maybe he just did not know what he was talking about. Chopper pressers are stressing the economy? The economy is doing great. What is wrong with talking about minority employment?

          Maybe just a whiny hand wringer? If he is so unhappy he should vote democrat.

            Stressing the economy as in making it the point, not hurting it. Minority unemployment is well known and off topic – at this point.
            Handwringer? I didn’t see that, the poster made a cogent point, that I appreciated, and I am 100% MAGA.

            Less name calling when you don’t like someone’s thoughts would be a great improvement.

    From Scott Johnson at PowerLine, a gem I had to share:

    Having just watched the shameless Chairman (ugh!) Adam Schiff examine Maguire, I am impressed yet again by the dishonest and deceitful approach of Schiff to all matters Trump. Schiff serves one legitimate purpose, though not the one he intends. He strongly suggests to me that this affair is “a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham.” By contrast, Devin Nunes made an excellent opening statement and is doing a good job examining Maguire as I write.

    Really captures Schiff, right?

      Also, I asked him to ask Sen Tillis to speak to Sen Burr and let him know his constituents are very unhappy with his continued pursuing of the witch hunt and he is the head of the committee not Warner.

    I believe- Adam Schitt opening ‘joke’ was his official planned statement. He did not expect the phone transcript to be released. He would have presented his statement as fact to the American people, who would have been left in the dark, if the transcript was not released. The his pet media would have played along.
