Plenty of would-be whistleblowers go to members of the House Intelligence Committee with potential complaints to navigate the ropes of the inspector general process. What the one in the case of President Trump's Ukraine call did was par for the course. Absent any new information it is seemingly beyond reproach.

What Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff did was not. Rather than inform his fellow committee members and let the process play out accordingly, he withheld knowledge of the complaint, used cable news to make the seeds of the complaint into public knowledge while the complaint was withheld from Congress, lied about his knowledge of the complaint to the press, and then used his post as chairman to turn testimony by acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire into a performative disaster rather than a substantive exploration of the contents of the complaint itself.

U.S. House intelligence panel chair Schiff says whistleblower complaint credible, disturbing

  U.S. House intelligence panel chair Schiff says whistleblower complaint credible, disturbing U.S. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said on Wednesday after viewing a whistleblower complaint concerning President Donald Trump that the allegations were "deeply disturbing" and "very credible.""I found the allegations deeply disturbing. I also found them very credible," Schiff told reporters.

Adam Bennett Schiff (born June 22, 1960) is an American politician serving as the U.S. Representative for California's 28th congressional district since 2001. He is a member of the Democratic Party.

Adam Schiff should be more worried about Ed Buck spilling his guts about how Schiff is involved in the drugging, rape and murder of black men in Schiff said he had evidence proving collusion with Russia but he LIED. Everything about this coup plotter is a lie. He needs to be tried for Sedition and hung.

The revelation prompted Republican committee member Elise Stefanik to say what any honest witness would realize in the wake of Schiff's dishonesty rivaling that of the president himself: Schiff must step down as chairman.

Democrats control the House, and if they want to go forward with impeaching Trump in earnest that's their prerogative. But such proceedings cannot be taken lightly, and Schiff cannot be trusted not to continue to make a mockery of a process enshrined with the severity of a last resort in our Constitution.

The best case to make to the public in support of impeachment is bipartisan in theory: Trump, it seems, is a uniquely norm-destroying president, and his lies and flagrant pursuit of self-interest over that of the people constitute something that vaguely fits under the umbrella of high crimes and misdemeanors. A sound legal argument? Hardly. A compelling appeal to pathos? Absolutely.

But when Schiff is an equally norm-destroying House Intelligence chairman it undercuts the fundamental case against Trump entirely. If Democrats want to use their most brutal lever of power to convince the public that their 2016 vote ought to be overridden that's their right. But to do so with someone as deeply unserious and dishonest as Schiff at the helm makes a mockery of the process and the Constitution.
