Republicans Move Jim Jordan to Intel Committee ahead of Public Impeachment Hearings

Jordan has fiercely defended Trump from his critics, especially the Democrats in charge of the impeachment probe, which he has called a "ridiculous charade".

Jordan is the top Republican member of the House Oversight Committee. Under procedures the House approved October 31, the Intelligence Committee will be the sole panel participating in the public hearings. "The typically venerable Intelligence Committee has now become the partisan Impeachment Committee".

When the inquiry is finished, Crawford will again join the Intelligence Committee, he said.

Since the Ohio Republican has been leading Republicans' defense of President Donald Trump in the closed witness interviews, GOP leadership wants to ensure he has a role in the public questioning as well.

The Ohio congressman is now the ranking Republican on the House Oversight Committee and has attended most of the closed-door impeachment hearings so far, but as a member of the Intelligence Committee he will be able to question witnesses.

He was the offensive coordinator at Trinity Christian-Cedar Hill High School and coached at Prime Prep Academy charter school. Odell Haggins is serving as the Seminoles' interim coach for the remainder of the season.

"We'll see if he gives us any of our witnesses", Jordan told reporters on Thursday, referring to Schiff. Trump has denied any wrongdoing.

Earlier this week, Schiff announced that the first public hearings would take place on Wednesday, Nov. 13.

House Democrats, who control the majority on the committees conducting the resulting impeachment probe, are expected to shut down the subpoena request as they have already rejected the idea of the whistleblower testifying in public, citing concern for the anonymous member of the intelligence community's safety.

President Trump and the Republicans have repeatedly stated that the identity of the whistleblower should be revealed and have pressured the media to identify him. Crawford wrote in a tweet that Jordan will "add critical bandwidth and legal expertise" to the committee, because apparently Schiff's law degree from Harvard University and time as an assistant USA attorney wasn't enough.
