Default Whistleblower spoke to Schiff aides before filing complaint

This is what ACTUAL collusion looks like...

Someone talks to Schiff's office for "guidance", "blows the whistle", then investigation is headed by....The same guy whose office gave the guidance...

Whistleblower spoke to Schiff aides before filing complaint

Quote:
The whistleblower who raised concerns about President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine spoke to staffers on the House Intelligence Committee before filing a formal complaint, giving Democrats advance warning of the accusations of wrongdoing that triggered their impeachment inquiry.

The whistleblower, a member of the intelligence community, contacted the committee for guidance on how to report “possible wrongdoing,” according to Patrick Boland, a spokesman for the Intelligence Committee’s chairman, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif. Boland said that “at no point did the committee review or receive the complaint in advance” and that it is a regular occurrence for whistleblowers to seek guidance from the committee.

“Consistent with the committee’s longstanding procedures, committee staff appropriately advised the whistleblower to contact an inspector general and to seek legal counsel,” Boland said. Other congressional committees follow a similar process.

The revelation that Democrats had spoken to the whistleblower, whose identity is not publicly known, added a new detail to the sequence of events surrounding the complaint. It could explain why Schiff quickly sounded alarm when the acting director of national intelligence withheld the complaint from Congress last month.

Trump, who has repeatedly described the call as “perfect,” seized on the whistleblower’s contact with the intelligence panel to amplify his criticism of Schiff and the impeachment investigation,

“It shows that Schiff is a fraud,” Trump said at a news conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto shortly after The New York Times published the story.

this assumes that an actual whistleblower exists and this isn't just made up considering the content of the phone call in question.

I can imagine Schiff saying he'll bring out the whistleblower and walks into a room, then comes back out with a fake mustache....

It gets even better. Schiff seems to have been connected to Hunter Biden and the Ukrainian Energy Company. So this whole thing could be an attempt to distract and/or de-rail investigation of the same.

Whistleblower spoke to Schiff aides before filing complaint
wb contacted the committee which is not unusual. they get queries all the time for 'how do I report this? who do I report this to?"
the committee did not know the actual complaint.
