Adam Schiff just claimed he doesn’t know the whistleblower’s identity.

He deliberately mislead the public about his office’s connection with the whistleblower and reportedly knew about the complaint before it was filed.

Wapo fact checker Glenn Kessler did indeed give House Intel Chair Adam Schiff 4 Pinocchios for his claims that he had not spoken directly to the whistleblower.
