House Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who is managing the campaign by House Democrats to impeach President Trump, warned members of his committee in a November 12 memorandum outlining the procedures for the impeachment hearings that attempts to reveal the name of the whistleblower whose allegations fueled the Democratic-led inquiry could be regarded as a violation of congressional ethics rules.
Representative Adam Schiff is loud and clear. President Trump must be impeached for seeking dirt on a political opponent during a phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. But the California Democrat committed the same misdeed himself in a phone call with two Russian radio pranksters. In January 2018, Schiff asked the two shock jocks, who posed as Ukraine officials, for derogatory information about Trump that included compromising nude photos. Schiff is chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
