Russiagate's last stand? #Resistance works itself up over whistleblower complaint on Trump's alleged ‘favor to foreign leader'

Added 09-19-19 06:37:01pm EST - “Just when you thought the Russiagate horse was well and truly dead, count on House Intelligence chair Adam Schiff to whip it back into life with another saucy tale of collusion, conspiracy and cover-up.” -


Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Russiagate’s last stand? #Resistance works itself up over whistleblower complaint on Trump’s alleged ‘favor to foreign leader’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Donald Trump’s alleged “collusion” with Russia to swing the 2016 election has largely been absent from the news of late. After the Mueller Report cleared the president of wrongdoing, and after the damp squib that was Special Counsel Mueller’s testimony before Congress in July, the story finally exited the news cycle.

Here comes Congressman Schiff (D-California), determined to breathe new life into the old tale once more. After two years of claiming that “ample evidence of collusion”... “undoubtedly”... “exists in plain sight,” the California Democrat unveiled the latest piece of evidence on Thursday, or rather didn’t.

Schiff seized upon a whistleblower complaint brought to the acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire last month. The complaint – if the Washington Post’s sources are correct – alleges that President Trump “promised” a favor to an unspecified “foreign leader.” The complaint was deemed serious by Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, but withheld from Congress.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday after a closed-door hearing with Atkinson, Schiff revealed nothing about the complaint’s contents, but accused Maguire and the Justice Department of withholding it from Congress at the behest of Trump or “someone in a higher pay grade.”
