Whistleblower Complaint Being Suppressed by Trump or Someone ‘Close' to Him, Schiff Says
REUTERSFollowing a closed-door briefing with the intelligence community's inspector general on Thursday, members of Congress told reporters that they learned no substantive details about a whistleblower's complaint that reportedly involves President Donald Trump making a "promise" to an unknown foreign leader—but were told that the complaint's subject "relates to one of the most significant and important of the DNI's responsibilities to the American people."

It was always a mystery to me.

First: Just keep lying—never, ever, ever stop lying. Because if you admit something once, you've given up the game. So, Trump says: All 16 or however many of those women are harlots and hustlers who are out for money. He won't say, "Oh, maybe I did kiss this one."
