Adam Schiff: We don’t need whistleblower’s testimony anymore, this is to protect his/her identity

“Given that we already have the call record, we don’t need the whistleblower who wasn’t on the call to tell us what took place during the call,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said in an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“Before the president started threatening the whistleblower … we were interested in having the whistleblower come forward. Our primary interest right now is making sure that that person is protected,” he added.

Adam Schiff also admitted that he “should have been much more clear,” about his office contact with the whistleblower.
