Trump on GOP Intel Member's Ukraine Tweet: 'WOW'

By    |   Friday, 04 October 2019 05:15 PM

President Donald Trump on Friday tweeted "WOW, this is big stuff!" after Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, surmised that House Intelligence Committee staffers must have dealt with the whistleblower in the Ukrainian complaint early on because the intelligence community's inspector general testified to having "no evidence" of their dealings.

Ratcliffe participated in a classified committee hearing with Inspector General Michael Atkinson earlier Friday. The panel is chaired by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

Afterward, Ratcliffe tweeted: "Since the [inspector general] has no evidence whatsoever about the relationship and contacts between the whistleblower and Schiff’s staff, the investigation has to get that information from other fact witnesses, who also happen to be running the investigation."

Schiff was given four Pinocchios by The Washington Post's fact-checker column Friday for falsely claiming that his panel had "not spoken directly with the whistleblower" before the complaint over Trump's July 25 telephone call was filed with the IG.

The New York Times reported Wednesday that the whistleblower had approached Intelligence staffers "days before" filing the complaint.

Ratcliffe also told reporters after the Atkinson hearing that Schiff "should be disqualified from running an investigation where his committee members or staff are fact witnesses about contact with the whistleblower and the whistleblower process."
