‘I deserve to meet my accuser!’ Trump wants both Ukrainegate ‘whistleblower’ and his SOURCE to face him
With the Ukrainegate scandal gathering pace, Trump has launched another scathing attack at one of its main peddlers, House Intel Committee chair Adam Schiff, saying that he wants to see the Democratic senator tried for treason for his parody interpretation of Trump’s call with Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Like every American, I deserve to meet my accuser, especially when this accuser, the so-called “Whistleblower,” represented a perfect conversation with a foreign leader in a totally inaccurate and fraudulent way. Then Schiff made up what I actually said by lying to Congress......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 29, 2019
“He wrote down and read terrible things, then said it was from the mouth of the President of the United States. I want Schiff questioned at the highest level for Fraud & Treason,” Trump wrote as he went on a Twitter tirade on Sunday.
....In addition, I want to meet not only my accuser, who presented SECOND & THIRD HAND INFORMATION, but also the person who illegally gave this information, which was largely incorrect, to the “Whistleblower.” Was this person SPYING on the U.S. President? Big Consequences!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 29, 2019
Doubling down on his call for Schiff to face legal repercussions for “lying to Congress,” Trump has made a fresh demand, arguing that he, “like every American,” has the right to meet his accuser, referring to the whistleblower behind the “urgent concern” compliant, which set the current impeachment inquiry in motion.Also on rt.com ‘They got caught!’ Trump reacts to report that whistleblowers exempted from need to have firsthand info as part of ‘RECENT’ update
Trump’s demand for a tete-a-tete with his “accuser,” who was reported to be a CIA officer detailed to the Trump administration at a certain point, comes amid reports that the whistleblower’s lawyers penned a letter to Schiff and Senate Intel Committee chair Richard Burr (R-N.C.) expressing “serious concern” for their client’s safety.
The whistleblower’s legal team insists his identity should remain shrouded in secrecy, with lawyer Andrew Bakaj telling the Times earlier this week that “any decision” to report his identity would be “deeply concerning” and “can place the individual in harm’s way.”
In his complaint, the whistleblower said that his knowledge of the events surrounding the Trump administration's dealings with Ukraine comes mostly from third parties, admitting that he was not privy to the call between Zelensky and Trump, which was thrust into the center of the snowballing scandal.
