Ivanka Trump Says Whistleblower's Name Not Relevant to Impeachment Probe on President

Ivanka Trump Says Whistleblower's Name Not Relevant to Impeachment Probe on President

As Nunes has indicated, Schiff also promised to allow the whistleblower to give private testimony to Congress as part of the impeachment investigation, and then decided such testimony was no longer necessary.

In recent weeks Jordan has been a near-constant attendee at closed-door depositions of witnesses, talking frequently to reporters afterward and defending the president on television. "Given that you have reneged on your public commitment to let the committees interview the whistleblower directly, you are the only individual who can provide clarity as to these conversations".

President Donald Trump has stepped up his outreach to Republican senators - including by helping his potential future jurors raise money for their reelection bids - as the White House prepares for an impeachment trial in the Senate that looks increasingly likely.

Republican Trump has denied wrongdoing and accused Democrats of unfairly targeting him in hope of reversing his surprise victory in the 2016 presidential election.

This process still gives Democrats final say over witnesses. What did they advise the whistleblower to do?

But GOP lawmakers for days had telegraphed that they were interested in making the attempt.

Last week, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins, R-Ga., publicly challenged Schiff to come before the judiciary panel.

The impeachment inquiry, which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi initiated late September over a complaint by an anonymous whistleblower, is looking into White House's alleged efforts to withhold a military aid to have Ukraine investigate a Trump's political rival Joe Biden. Some witnesses who have appeared before House committees as part of the impeachment proceedings have challenged that assertion. Whereas Rep. Adam Schiff turned the general public face for the Democrats in impeachment as chair of the Intelligence Committee, Republicans relied on Jordan, Rep. Mark Meadows and Rep. Earlier on Thursday, Jennifer Williams, an aide to Vice President Mike Pence, testified behind closed doors for several hours on Capitol Hill; and House panels leading the impeachment inquiry released a transcript from their interview with George Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, who is scheduled to testify in open session next week.
