Trump fundraising for GOP senators ahead of possible impeachment trial

US President Donald Trump departs the White House in Washington DC

US President Donald Trump departs the White House in Washington DC

Oversight ranking member Jim Jordan will serve on the Intelligence Committee during public impeachment proceedings, temporarily replacing GOP Rep.

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. "The typically venerable Intelligence Committee has now become the partisan Impeachment Committee".

President Donald Trump has stepped up his outreach to Republican senators - including by helping his potential future jurors raise money for their reelection bids - as the White House prepares for an impeachment trial in the Senate that looks increasingly likely.

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

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. After impeachment wraps up, Crawford says he'll be back on the committee. "So everything is in the transcript", Trump said, while claiming that she hasn't been reading transcripts of depositions current and former administration officials in the ongoing impeachment inquiry.

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

"You can understand why the president is frustrated", Jordan said last month. Trump has denied any wrongdoing.

The first public hearings will take place next Wednesday and Friday.

The tense exchange came as Republican counsel asked Vindman about the identity of the so-called "whistleblower" who raised concerns to the intelligence community regarding President Trump's July 25th telephone conversation with the leader of Ukraine.
