Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, communicated dissatisfaction Friday that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., has not yet discharged the transcripts of statements from four observers who gave declaration in secret in the House of Representatives’ arraignment investigation into President Trump.
“The chairman has promised that we’d get to see the transcript,” Jordan said during Friday’s televised impeachment hearing, “but there are still four people that we have not been able to see their transcripts.
“Therefore, the testimony they provided, we’re not able to use in these open hearings,” Jordan added. “If it’s an open hearing, all the available testimony of depositions that has been taken by the committee should be available to be discussed, for the American people to see.”

Jordan was alluding to the shut entryway declaration given by Tim Morrison, the National Security Council’s active ranking executive of European and Russian undertakings and White House delegate right hand; Jennifer Williams, Vice President Mike Pence’s unique consultant on Europe and Russia; David Hale, undersecretary of state for political issues; and Philip Reeker, a top State Department negotiator accountable for U.S. strategy for Europe.
Both Morrison and Williams were on the July 25 telephone call among Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during which Trump asked Zelensky to examine previous Vice President Joe Biden and his child Hunter’s Biden’s direct with respect to Ukrainian oil organization Burisma.
Schiff’s group has said they will discharge those transcripts “in no time,” without giving a particular date, as per Axios.
