Adam Schiff doesn’t want you to see the truth about his and his staff’s involvement with the so-called ‘whistleblower’ whose allegations spurred the partisan impeachment sham being carried out by House democrats, according to Rep. John Ratcliffe.

On Saturday, Ratcliffe responded to a tweet asking why Michael Atkinson’s transcript still hasn’t been released after more than two months. Ratcliffe implied that Intelligence Community Inspector General, might have revealed information about a possible connection between the whistleblower and members of Schiff’s staff.

“It’s because I asked IG Atkinson about his ‘investigation’ into the contacts between Schiff’s staff and the person who later became the whistleblower. The transcript is classified ‘secret’ so Schiff can prevent you from seeing the answers to my questions,” he tweeted.

The Daily Caller reported:

Ratcliffe was responding to a question tweeted by Paul Sperry, former D.C. bureau chief at Investor’s Business Daily, about the fact that Atkinson’s transcript was still being withheld nearly two months after his closed-door testimony.

“Why is Schiff still withholding transcript of ICIG Michael Atkinson’s Oct 4 closed-door testimony which lasted 8+ hours? He’s released 15 witness transcripts but is still hiding Atkinson’s,” Sperry noted.

DEVELOPING: Why is Schiff still withholding transcript of ICIG Michael Atkinson’s Oct 4 closed-door testimony which lasted 8+ hours? He’s released 15 witness transcripts but is still hiding Atkinson’s. Also, what’s Atkinson’s connection to Obama officials including David Laufman?

Republicans in both the House and the Senate have suggested that Schiff himself ought to be called to testify over his staffers’ interactions with the whistleblower.
