House Republicans plan to call Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff as one of the first witnesses for the prosecution request against President Trump after the adoption of the formal rules for the investigation, he claims he is a “fact witness” because of his office and the early involvement of the whistleblower, whose complaint triggered the process.

A source familiar with the Republicans ” strategy forward in the prosecution request, confirmed to Fox News on Monday, to call the GOP members of the plan, ship, D-Calif., for the survey, even if they are unlikely to be successful.


The source told Fox News that the Republicans want answers to questions like: “How many times he had a meeting with the whistleblower? What you advise to do the whistleblower to? How much the ship was involved in? He recommend to give the whistleblower, the complaint to the intelligence community inspector general, although there is no intel-component, so that he might be involved?”

Vessel is not claimed that he personally spoke with the anonymous whistleblower. However, it was revealed that a few weeks ago, the whistleblower, at least, they had early contact with his office, essentially giving them a heads-up on the complaint as to Trump the July-phone call with Ukraine’s President.

On the early discussion, which pointed to a GOP source that the Republicans might be interested to hear from the “anonymous” ship employee involved.

The Republicans’ effort to design a strategy going forward that comes after the house adopted rules for the process of the last week. While the Republicans against the resolution, and complained the rules were unfair, they still gave the minority Republicans the ability to subpoena witnesses, with the consent of the Democratic Committee Chairman. If the chair does not agree, the minority appealed to the Committee as a whole can.

This process is still Democrats ‘ last word on witnesses, however, and the GOP source, it is unlikely that you would go along with the efforts to name, ship-who is essentially the charge of the probe leads was confirmed.

But GOP lawmakers since the days of telegraphed had to try, that you were interested, the to.

House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation”, the ship, the “first person”, which should be brought, along with his staff.


Last Week, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins, R-Ga., public ship be challenged to come before the judiciary panel.

“You come to the justice Committee,” Collins said after the passage of the impeachment rules resolution. “The first witness, and take up every question to you. You start with your own participation of the whistleblower.”

Ship ‘ s office last month, said that the whistleblower had reached them prior to the filing of the complaint in the middle of August, giving Democrats warning the allegations, which later lead to you to start a prosecution request days. The inspector General complaint about Trump’s July 25 phone conversation with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky marked concerns about efforts to investigate the pressure of Ukraine, former Vice-President Joe Biden and his son Hunter kept as a military aid to the country.

A transcript released by the White house shows make trump that request, but he and his congressional allies deny it, and plan to deny, that the military aid was clearly with the request, or that there is no “quid pro quo.” Some of the witnesses before house committees as part of the impeachment procedure against the claim.

Meanwhile, the Republicans are also hoping to name the whistleblower to testify, according to the source, the noted ship’s recent reversal on the issue.

Ship in September, had proposed to the preview displayed to the testimony of the whistleblowers “very soon”, but in the last few weeks has been that the testimony is unnecessary.

The President, repeatedly has asked, to bear witness to the individual.

“The Whistleblower gave the wrong information & corrupt politicians are treated in the ship. He needs to be brought forward to testify,” the President tweeted on Monday morning. “Written answers are not acceptable! Where is the 2. Whistleblower? He disappeared after I published the transcript. He knows exist at all? Where is the informant? Con!”

The whistleblower is the Central allegation that the Trump in July called on the Ukraine, start of politically-related investigations, however, was supported by other witnesses, as well as the call transcript released by the White house.

The whistleblower’s lawyer, Mark Zaid, tweeted over the weekend that his client would be sworn information in writing, under penalty of perjury.

But late on Sunday, House Oversight Committee Ranking member Jim Jordan apparently Zaid rejected the offer, saying: “written responses will not be sufficient opportunity to be of all the relevant facts and cross-examination of the so-called whistleblower.”

The Republicans plan to continue to criticise House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for not formal floor vote on the impeachment inquiry process up to a month after the announcement of the probe, and the craft-rules that they say limit their ability to subpoena witnesses.

According to another GOP source in the plan familiar with the impeachment process, the Republicans continue to argue that the whole of the prosecution’s request for a Trump a “sham”, and push back against the substance of the investigation itself.
