GOP Rep. Jim Jordan suggested Thursday that Republican members of the House Intel Committee will likely move to subpoena the “whistleblower” at the center of the Democrats’ latest impeachment push.
“Republicans intend to subpoena the government whistleblower to testify in the House’s impeachment investigation into President Trump‘s dealings with Ukraine, according to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio),” reports The Hill. “The effort is not likely to bear fruit, as Democrats have rejected the idea of outing the anonymous figure, citing safety concerns, and they have veto power over any GOP subpoena requests for witness testimony.”
“The whistleblower statute never required for anonymity,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) told reporters earlier this week.
Recently resurfaced posts from the whistleblower’s attorney raised serious questions over anti-Trump bias going back to the President’s inauguration.
“#coup has started. First of many steps. #rebellion. #impeachment will follow ultimately. #lawyers,” posted Mark Zaid.

“It’s very scary. We will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters. We have to,” he posted months later.

“A huge development surrounding the “whistleblower,” his complaint is just a political hit-job. If he wants anyone to take him seriously, he better get a different lawyer. Fox News has uncovered a series of tweets from the attorney… It’s now obvious that this lawyer is a Trump-hater,” said Hannity Wednesday night.
“We’re honestly supposed to believe that the whistleblower just had the best interest of the country in mind? No,” he added.

JORDAN ON HANNITY: Dems All About ‘Getting the President,’ Not the Rule of Law
Rep. Jim Jordan stopped by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to discuss the Democrats’ non-stop efforts to obtain the un-redacted Mueller report; saying left-wing lawmakers are simply out “to get the President.”
“The Judiciary Committee voted today to subpoena the full, un-redacted Mueller report along with the evidence gathered in the investigation, despite the full release being against DOJ rules approved by Democrats,” said Hannity.
“Understand the situation we’re in… The Judiciary Chair wants the Attorney General of the United States to release Grand Jury material. They’re so focused on getting the President, forget about the rule of law and how things are supposed to happen. They’re all about getting the President,” said Rep. Jordan.

JORDAN ON HANNITY: Schiff and Pelosi ‘Making Up the Rules as They Go Along’
Rep. Jim Jordan spoke with Sean Hannity Thursday night on the Democrats’ secret impeachment hearings; saying Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congressman Adam Schiff are “making up the rules” as they go along.
“Another disastrous day for the Democrats. Are we ever going to get the transcripts? More lies told by the leaking Democrats,” said Hannity.
“I do think we’ll get the transcript at some time. Schiff and Pelosi are making the rules up as they go along. It’s a sham process. Hopefully we’ll get the transcripts. When you do this in secret, in the basement of the Capitol, people understand this is a flawed process,” fired-back Jordan.
“Our party has stayed together and we all voted against this,” he added.
