    Just wait til he gets called by the Senate to testify under oath.

    So, Schiff could be outright lying about not knowing the alleged whistle blower's identity.... and he almost CERTAINLY is....

    But it gets handwaved away because he's vigorously prosecuting Trump...

    No, the fact is that it doesn't matter and he has a responsibility by law to protect the whistleblower. You need to stop swallowing the irrelevant stuff your favorite propagandists are feeding you.

    But it "doesn't matter"?

    I guess that's OK, though - he hates Trump.
    And you take vigorous exception to me 'divining' your moods and motives, yet look at your last statement ...

    My dismissal of the issue has nothing to do with 'he hates trump'. It has to do with my agreement with the idea that the whistle blower needs to be protected against GOP and POTUS reprisal, and he is right not to reveal his identity if he knows it (as in knows officially as opposed to just having seen what the rumor is). If I was him I would not lie about knowing who it is (assuming he is lying) but IMHO he would not be wrong if he did.
    He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me."

    You are assuming he is lying, because that's what you've been told. You have no clue, and it gets hand waved away because it's irrelevant.

    I guess you would tell the cartel you knew where the fellow they were trying to kill was hiding? And you would accuse someone that lied about it of being a liar and equal to the lies of the cartel members seeking to kill the fellow?

    because that's what you've been told. You have no clue,
    It would be nearly impossible for Schiff not to know, and if he knows, he's lying when he says he does not.

    and it gets hand waved away because it's irrelevant.
    Like I said - he's a Democrat, so, yeah, he gets a pass for lying.

    I knew there was a better, more accurate way to express what I was noticing - yes.

    Oh, for crying out loud. You're SERIOUSLY going to claim that Schiff can't just honestly say "It is my duty to protect the identity of the witness" (even though that's a stretch) when everybody KNOWS who the whistle blower is? Are you that desperate to defend Schiff that you'd stoop to this nonsense?
