Jim Jordan Appointed to House Intel Panel to Fight Impeachment

Senate Impeachment

Senate Impeachment

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff on Thursday released a tightened set of guidelines over what potential witnesses can be called in the impeachment hearings, saying Republicans must justify their relevance according to a three-point criteria.

In a letter to Devin Nunes, the Republican ranking member of the Democratic-controlled House panel, Schiff said the first in a series of open hearings will be held on November 13 at 10:00 a.m. and that the minority should submit its witness request no later than November 9 at 11:20 a.m. That will begin next week.

"Jim Jordan has been on the front lines in the fight for fairness and truth", McCarthy said.

A more junior member of the committee, Rep. Rick Crawford of Arkansas, will step aside from the panel during impeachment proceedings to make room for Jordan, House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy announced.

Republicans are temporarily moving aside a current member of the panel to make space for the OH lawmaker on the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, in an unusual move that heralded the seriousness of the situation for Trump and his party.

Jordan and Meadows sit on the Oversight Committee, while New York's Zeldin serves on the Foreign Relations Committee.

As per media reports, Kumble wanted to retain Ravichandran Ashwin but the spinner himself was keen to move to Delhi Capitals. He was also an integral part of the Chennai Super Kings side that won back-to-back titles in 2010 and 2011.

"In Speaker Pelosi's House, those responsibilities have fallen victim to partisan witch hunts", McCarthy added. "When it is finished, Rick will rejoin the committee and resume his work to keep our country safe".

On Thursday, Jordan told reporters that Republicans are looking to subpoena the whistleblower at the focus of the impeachment inquiry.

Jordan was also one of about two-dozen GOP lawmakers who stormed a closed-door deposition last month after blasted the Democrats for holding the impeachment inquiry in a secretive manner.

The whistleblower complaint expressed concerns about Trump's July 25th phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, during which Trump asked Zelensky to investigate 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son's connections to a Ukrainian gas company. Trump has denied wrongdoing. Only the Intelligence Committee will hold hearings in the public phase starting Wednesday. "On Friday, November 15, 2019, we will hear from Marie Yovanovitch".

If that's the case, it will be Nunes, not Jordan, who will lead the Republican portions of the public hearings.
