House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., admitted on Sunday that he should have been clearer about his contact with the whistleblower who filed a complaint about President Trumps July phone call with the Ukrainian president.
I should have been much more clear, Schiff said during an interview on CBS Face The Nation.
Fox News reported earlier this month that the intelligence community whistleblower did not disclose contact with Schiffs staff to the intelligence committee inspector general (ICIG).
The sources said ICIG Michael Atkinson told lawmakers in a closed session that the whistleblower did not disclose the contact with the California Democrat's committee and that Atkinson didnt investigate that contact as he had no knowledge of it.
Sources also told Fox News that Atkinson also revealed that the whistleblower volunteered he or she was a registered Democrat and that they had a prior working relationship with a prominent Democratic politician.
Schiffs office acknowledged earlier this month that the whistleblower had reached out to them before filing a complaint in mid-August, giving Democrats advance warning of the accusations that would lead them to launch an impeachment inquiry days later.
The source said Atkinson told lawmakers he did not know how a Schiff tweet in August and other statements about Ukraine appeared to reflect the substance of the whistleblower complaint, which was not declassified and not shared with Congress until the end of September.

Lying isn’t exactly being clear to ANY degree.
Tho he represents Hollywood voters, he looks like more of a Looney Tune kind of guy imho.
Neither he nor his staff should have had any contact with the “whistleblower” prior to him coming forward.
They probably prepped him on what to say.
I wonder if the Dems wish they’d never opened this can of worms.
“I made a mistake, but it was still the right thing to do because Trump is truly evil.”
Ha haaaa!!! Adam Schiff is the New Orleans Hard Rock Cafe of politics.
“Clear”? He lied and said that he had none.
I call that a setup...
He looks like the Judge in Who’s Framing Roger Rabbit?
Schmitt admits he should have lied better.
The fkr lied.
He hangs out with the Democrat donor having sex withnmeth and homosexual prostitutes.
Let’s bring back an old classic Watergate days euphamism. What he said was at variance with the facts.
“If you tell the truth, you don’t need to have a good memory.” — Judge Judy.
Instead of having intellectual curiosity and looking the mysterious, coincidental "whistle blower," Fox just let their impeachment monkeys run wild over the last few weeks.
Schitt is incapable to telling the truth any time he runs his mouth.
