President Trump has stomped down the latest con job by Democrats over their so-called “whistleblower” who has recently had his cover blown.
In an effort to protect their operative who has been outed as a CIA snitch who was embedded at the White House, Adam Schiff and company offered to have the “whistleblower” provide written testimony during the impeachment inquiry.
With the key to Schiff’s latest scam having been identified as Trump hater and Biden associate Eric Ciaramella, the last thing that Democrats want is for him to have to answer serious questions, under oath and on live television.

But the offer was refused when Trump dashed the hopes of the treacherous cabal that is engaged in a coup against him by going on the offensive.
According to the leader of the free world:
The Whistleblower gave false information & dealt with corrupt politician Schiff. He must be brought forward to testify.
Written answers not acceptable!
Where is the 2nd Whistleblower? He disappeared after I released the transcript. Does he even exist? Where is the informant? Con!

Via Politico, “Trump rejects offer of written answers from whistleblower”:
President Donald Trump on Monday rejected an offer by the lawyer for the anonymous whistleblower at the center of House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry to submit written answers to questions from Republican lawmakers.
“The Whistleblower gave false information & dealt with corrupt politician Schiff,” Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), one of the leaders of the impeachment probe.
“He must be brought forward to testify,” the president continued. “Written answers not acceptable!”
Attorney Mark Zaid, who represents the whistleblower, said on Sunday that he had contacted Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, to offer Republican members of that panel the opportunity to submit written questions to his client’s legal team.
The whistleblower would respond to those queries under oath and penalty of perjury, Zaid said — attempting to undercut Republican objections regarding a lack of transparency in the Democratic-led impeachment process and to blunt skepticism toward the unknown intelligence official’s allegations.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Sunday that he was not aware of Zaid’s proposal, and while he did not say he would refuse the opportunity to provide written questions, he stressed that the whistleblower “should come before the committee.”
Pitbull GOP Congressman Jim Jordan also rejected the request to have Ciaramella submit his answers in writing.

Compounding shifty Schiff’s woes is the unearthing of 2017 tweets from the “sleazeball” attorney representing the “whistleblower” calling for a coup against Trump only days after his inauguration.

The president himself took the opportunity to point out that the impeachment has been plotted from even before he was sworn in by reading Mark Zaid’s tweets aloud during a Louisiana rally on Wednesday.

With Republicans and Trump’s defenders now unwilling to accept anything less than Mr. Ciaramella’s testimony in an open – and nationally televised – setting, Schiff’s Soviet-style show trial is about to run into some serious headwinds.
