Schiff said he does not know who the whistle-blower is. Considering that he has told no less than at least three whoppers, why should we believe it. Even if he doesn’t know, someone on his staff knows. As far as I am concerned, it is the same thing.
As a storyteller, I tell stories all the time. The difference is that I admit it. To some degree, I even advertise it. If you read any of my books you will will realize it, especially those in the Ring or Floater series. Schiff enjoys telling lies as much as me. The difference is that he expects us to believe him.
Fat chance of that.
