On the contrary, the Republicans have painted the Whistleblower as a supporter of the Democratic Party and lacked direct information or knowledge about the July 25 call made by Trump.

Republicans accuse the whistleblower of being anti-Trump and cite how the informant contacted Schiff's panel on advice about filing a complaint. Paul states they now know the name of the whistleblower. It can not be okay in our country for a United States president - any president - to go to a foreign leader and ask for help in his election. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told reporters on Wednesday.

Paul said that his legislation would "make clear" that President Trump should be able to face the whistleblower whose allegations about a July 25 phone call with Ukraine's leader provided the underpinning for a House impeachment inquiry.

Democrats, who have the majority in the House, are planning for the public hearings stage of the inquiry to be conducted only by the intelligence committee, which Jordan does not now belong to. "It's up to Devin [Nunes]", Jordan said.

The federal laws protect the Whistleblower.

Impeachment Proceeding against Trump will begin from next week, as announced by the Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff. The resolution was introduced by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen.

Trump has publicly referred to as for the whistleblower to come back ahead and put his title to the costs he's levied, and Republican Sen.

When McCaskill joined Morning Joe on Tuesday to talk about the Trump-Ukraine impeachment inquiry, she argued the whistleblower is "irrelevant" now since their concerns have been corroborated so much since they filed their report with the inspector general.

Trump has blasted the inquiry as a witch hunt and accused Democrats of unfairly targeting him in hope of reversing his surprise victory in the 2016 presidential election. "All he did was expose that his government was not obeying the Constitution", Paul said.
