If Trump is guilty of extorting the Ukrainians to dig up dirt on Joe Biden, then why does it matter if the whistleblower testifies?

    Because Schiff lied about knowing him before he went public. If he testifies, Schiff will be revealed as the guy who orchestrated it.

    So that America can see that the whistleblower

    a.) has 0 first hand knowledge of anything

    b.) a team of lawyers wrote the report not the whistleblower

    c.) the team of lawyers were working with Schiff and met with Schiff on many occasions

    d.) is filled with anti-Trump bias

    e.) worked for prominent liberals and Democrats and Biden

    f.) is a traitor

    It doesn't. Whistleblowers, by law, cannot be suppoenaed. Their identites are protected under penalty of law. These laws date back to the ratification of the Constitution.

      He isn't a whisteblower according to the statute.

    Trump already threatened the whistle blower with execution, so there's good reason to keep his name private.

    It doesn't. 

    The whistleblower’s testimony will almost certainly add nothing to what we already know.

    Moreover, by now almost everything in the whistleblower’s complaint has been verified by documents or individuals with first-hand knowledge. The committees have the memorandum reflecting President Trump’s call with Zelensky, which closely tracks the whistleblower’s description. They have testimony from State Department and National Security Council officials describing the president’s insistence on pressing Ukraine to investigate both the Bidens and the Clinton email server, and his sidelining of career officials who declined to do his bidding in favor of a shadow foreign policy run by political loyalists and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani. And we have the admission by Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, since unconvincingly recanted, that there was, in fact, a quid pro quo—that military aid would not be delivered unless Ukraine agreed to open an investigation for the president’s personal political benefit.

    Given all this, there is no point in having the whistleblower testify.

    Because no evidence has come forth that he is guilty.

      You know... except for Trump quite literally saying he did it.

       

      With that said, what is up for debate is whether Trump was in the right to do what he did, or whether it was an abuse of power.  It's not about guilt or innocence, but instead whether it was a crime at all.

  • The whistle blower does not want fat Donnie to Epstein him or her.
