Case Dismissed? Whistleblower May Have Committed a Felony In Coup Against Trump
It looks like the “whistleblower” in the attempt to impeach President Trump may have made a VERY BIG mistake when they filing their paperwork.
It appears that the agent who filed the whistleblower complaints failed to disclose some very important information.
Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson admitted to lawmakers last week that he never actually into the connection between the whistleblower and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff. But why is that? Did he forget to check?
No. It was because the whistleblower never disclosed the fact that he did have contact with Schiff.
How important is this? Well, it’s actually a felony.
Sean David from The Federalist tweeted,
“The form submitted by the complainant required him to disclose all contacts he had regarding his allegations. If he failed to disclose those interactions with Schiff before filing the complaint, he could be subject to felony false statement charges. “

The actual law, 18 U.S. Code § 1001, reads:
Except as otherwise provided in this section, whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully—falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact; shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both. If the matter relates to an offense under chapter 109A, 109B, 110, or 117, or section 1591, then the term of imprisonment imposed under this section shall be not more than 8 years.
We already know that the information is only hearsay and is a garbage complaint which is a complete waste of time and resources, but there is a lot going on that has yet to be revealed.
We know Schiff had contact with the whistleblower before the complaint was filed.
We know the whistleblower didn’t actually witness anything first-hand.
We know Schiff lied about his contact with the whistleblower.
We know the whistleblower lied about his contact with Schiff.
