Morning Digestion – 10-3-19: SCHIFF HEARD FROM WHISTLEBLOWER BEFORE COMPLAINT FILED, THEN LIED WHEN HE SAID HE HADN’T.

Adam Schiff told MSNBC on September 17 he and his committee staff had not heard from the Whistleblower in advance of the complaint filing. He lied. The WB had reached out to Schiff’s staff to forewarn of the complaint. Trump says Schiff probably wrote the complaint. He has a point.
