U.S. Republicans mull adding Trump defender Jordan to impeachment panel

U.S. Republicans mull adding Trump defender Jordan to impeachment panel”

However, there is outrage on social media that Trump Jr.'s name is outing the actual whistleblower, claiming it might have come with coordination from the White House.

Unable to independently verify the whistleblower's identity, Newsmax is not publishing the name alleged to be the whistleblower.

More details in the impeachment inquiry are expected to be released on Wednesday, a day after transcripts revealed a top Trump donor-turned-diplomat reversed course and told investigators Ukrainian aid was tied to investigations of political rivals sought by the USA president.

"There is no Whistleblower".

The whistleblower filed a complaint with the Intelligence Community Inspector General on August 12 regarding President Donald Trump's actions toward Ukraine.

Standing beside Mr Trump at a political rally in Kentucky Monday, Republican Senator Rand Paul threatened to expose the person and demanded they testify in Congress.

A lawyer representing the anonymous whistleblower went out of his way to make clear his intentions to take down the USA president, squashing any notion of a non-partisan approach.

"The whistleblower's lawyer gave away the game", the Trump campaign's communications director, Tim Murtaugh. told Fox News.

"Identifying any suspected name for the whistleblower will place that individual and their family at risk of serious harm", Andrew Bakaj and Mark Zaid, lawyers for the whistleblower, said in a statement Wednesday.

Mr. Trump referred to the story at a campaign rally in Louisiana on Wednesday night, calling the attorney a "sleazeball".

A subsequently released call record shows Mr Trump asked Mr Zelensky for a "favour" and specified that Ukraine should open investigations into Mr Trump's Democratic rival Joe Biden, as well as into allegations, widely discredited, that Ukraine helped the Democrats in the 2016 election.

Sondland, a hotelier and Trump donor, returned on Monday and told House investigators that he, in fact, had told a Ukrainian official that Kiev, which is fighting Russian separatists in the eastern part of the country, was unlikely to get almost $400 million in US military aid unless it probed Trump's domestic political rivals, the transcripts showed.

Republicans painted the whistle-blower, who had worked on the White House national security council earlier this year, as a Democratic Party supporter who lacked direct knowledge of the July 25 call.

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.

Hale is expected to tell investigators the State Department was concerned that supporting former USA ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch could hurt efforts to release aid and could provoke Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, the Associated Press reported, citing people familiar with the matter.
