Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y. mocked Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif by reading old tweets from when Schiff “vowed to have the Ukraine whistleblower testify before his panel.” Stefanik read tweets and quotes from news reports and television appearances wherein Schiff said that the whistleblower would testify. Fox News adds that Schiff has “since denied requests for that individual to come forward, calling the potential testimony ‘redundant’ and ‘unnecessary’ last week.”

The impeachment inquiry that began in September revolves around President’s Trump phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25th. The call caused a whistleblower to complain to the intelligence community inspector general. In September, Schiff said that the whistleblower would appear before Congress, but he recently said that testimony is unnecessary.
It was also reported that Republicans involved in the impeachment inquiry “have incorporated the whistleblower on their record of proposed witnesses.”
