"Schiff confirms tentative agreement for whistleblower to testify before House Intelligence Committee "
There is a tentative agreement for the anonymous whistleblower who filed a complaint containing allegations about President Donald Trump's conduct to testify before the House Intelligence Committee, Chairman Adam Schiff said Sunday, confirming CNN's previous reporting.
CNN reported on Wednesday that the potential testimony is dependent on the whistleblower's attorneys getting security clearance.

The California Democrat added that his committee is currently "taking all the precautions we can to make sure that we do so -- we allow that testimony to go forward in a way that protects the whistleblower's identity, because as you can imagine, when the President is showing threats like, 'We ought to treat these people who expose my wrongdoing as we used to treat traitors and spies,' and we used to execute traitors and spies. You can imagine the security concerns here." (My bolding)

Now do all the Hillary witnesses who died.
Wouldn’t it be funny if the whistleblower turned out to be Schiff himself, or Nadler?
They’ve been making things up for more than 2 years to get Trump, so, I wouldn’t put this ‘new’ hoax above them.
The whistleblower’s id can’t be known before he is brought before congress... very convenient!
A complaint about Trump from ONE person backed by ANTI-TRUMP GEORGE SOROS/HILLARY and a TEAM OF COMPLAINT-WRITING LAWYERS hellbent on UNDOING the results of the 2016 election but yet the complainant is entitled to being kept ANONYMOUS?
George Soros' house should be RAIDED by the 'patriot wing' of the FBI if such a wing exists which at this point I have my doubts.
What is required to investigate the recent change in the whistle-blower law allowing hearsay evidence?? If the law was not lawfully changed and reverts back to the original wordage and intent, then this one loses his protection.
How did the change come about?? - and by whom??
The proglibs sink further into their collective delusion...
What a brilliant idea, have someone testify about alleged incidents that they never actually witnessed in person, but heard 2nd or 3 hand. That would really go over big in a court of law.
Somebody had to authorize it, and sign off on it in order for it to be printed up for official use. Find that person or persons, and the rest will fall into place.
Surely it had to pass muster with an authenticating power somewhere. This is a bigtime change and needs to be found without merit and reversed. This whistle-blower is not a whistle-blower.
No, you are missing the point entirely. They testify ANONYMOUSLY with only hearsay. Actually, there is only one reason they would possibly want him to remain anonymous, and that is that his very identity would expose him as a Dem operative. That is obvious, he is someone well known to be an anti Trump Democrat hack, that’s why they are guarding his identity.
You are correct, an anonymous witness with 3rd hand information would go over big in a court of law.
Has Nunes referred him to the DOJ for LYING to CONgress yet?? WHy doesn’t Linda do it? Does it matter if the Senate Refers LIARS to The House to the DOJ for Criminal Prosecution?
Will a Blasey type be presented as the leaker?
This becomes more clownish every day.
An anonymous witness testifying in secret to second or third-hand information from other secret witnesses, who might have gotten their information second or third-hand. And testifying to a Chairman who is known to make up stuff.
What sort of &&#$ is this? Cmon. Charlie Chaplin had talent, at least.
NOT at all going to be a very good witness if we can look for shifty eyes, and moistened eyes when moved. This will be the JOKE of the century, a hooded KKK Klansman on the HIll impeaching a sitting President.
Are they going to put blindfolds on Congress?
We are living in the twilight zone.
How can he testify when he has no personal knowledge of anything?
Why are we allowing a CIA Deep State perpetual-war-seeking a-hole to take out our President?
Schitt is lying as usual
Whistleblower is now under fed protection because scared for life. Same crap they pull everytime to ensure nobody can gain access.
Next, theyll have some hack collaborate the 2nd hand hearsay.
Same BS they did with Blasey-Ford.
We’re not allowed to know. this b=country is fast going down the tubs,
The minute the charade ends, the IG report on FISA begins. And thats why the rats are dragging this out.
