Republicans failed to call for a hearing an informant who filed a complaint about the actions of Donald Trump during his conversation with Vladimir Zelensky.
Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have rejected a Republican demand to summon a mysterious informant to a public hearing as part of the investigation into President Donald Trump’s impeachment. Republicans have proposed issuing a subpoena and requiring the informant, whose identity is not disclosed, to appear at the hearing to testify.
This man’s complaint about the actions of President Trump during his telephone conversation with the President of Ukraine became the reason for the beginning of the impeachment inquiry.
The proposal to call the informant to the hearing was put forward by Republican Mike Conway, but the 13 Democrats on the Committee rejected it. All nine Republicans on the Intelligence Committee voted in support of the initiative.
