Jim Jordan Hammers Adam Schiff at Impeachment Hearing: ‘Nobody Believes You’

Things got a little testy at Tuesday morning’s impeachment hearing when House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff was accused of lying about knowing the identity of the whistleblower.

The exchange came during testimony by Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, Democrat witness and top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council.

Following interruption by Vindman’s attorney during testimony, Schiff declared that “this committee will not be used to out the whistleblower.”

Jordan responded by saying his line of questioning was not designed to out the whistleblower, an individual whom Schiff has denied knowing the identity of.

“You have said you don’t know who the whistleblower is – even though no one believes you,” Jordan shot back at the California Democrat.

Why Did Jordan Jab Schiff?

Aside from the fact that it’s always satisfying to see Republicans taking shots at Schiff whose role as Chairman should be relinquished based on his partisan hackery, the exchange highlights a very important point.

Schiff is, in fact, lying about not knowing the whistleblower.

The Democrat insisted this was the case at a hearing last week saying, “I do not know the identity of the whistleblower and I’m determined to make sure that identity is protected.”

Jordan is right in saying nobody believes Schiff. Nobody believed him prior to today’s hearing because his staff coordinated with the whistleblower. And nobody believes him now because of the following exchange …

Huh. How could Schiff possibly have known who Vindman was talking about here if he doesn’t know the identity of the whistleblower? At a bare minimum, he knows that Vindman knows who the whistleblower is and certainly became concerned that his statements were going to reveal his identity.

Jordan should subpoena Schiff to testify.

They Got Caught

Vindman and Schiff both got caught during the exchange with Rep. Devin Nunes. Schiff, as we already mentioned, and Vindman who stated in his deposition that he didn’t know the identity of the whistleblower – A man who the Political Insider has already identified as CIA officer Eric Ciaramella, a registered Democrat who worked with former Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director John Brennan.

Watch how he clams up after Nunes asks, “How it is possible for you to name these people and then out the whistleblower?”

In a span of just a few minutes, Vindman avoided answering that question by insisting Nunes refer to him by rank, then repeatedly saying his counsel has advised him not to answer.

“Are you aware that this is the Intelligence Committee that’s conducting this impeachment hearing?” Nunes quipped. “Wouldn’t the appropriate place for you to come to testify would be the Intelligence Committee about someone within the intelligence community?”

Jordan and Nunes clearly outed Vindman and Schiff as liars during today’s hearing. Nobody, as Jordan states, believes them.

  • Sadly, that's my point. It won't end until, unless we bring an end to it and I don't see that happening. Not in what's left of my lifetime anyways.

  • It will not end. Americans have, since the creation of this new nation, struggled against those who hated the principles at its foundation. They literally tried to hijack a bunch of 'southern' states to create their own nation that eschewed American principles but Abraham Lincoln put a stop to that.

    It will never end. However, Americans may lose, since those who hate America control the education system. American children no longer learn what it is to even BE an American.

    Most Americans have not noticed, but the Communists won the Cold War. Now, they are 'consolidating power'. Trump just got in the way but they continue down that path, with every corrupt Leftist judge's ruling, every day a commie teaches American children in schools, every day the Left control the message in the mainstream news media and in movies Americans see.

    America may be lost, already.

  • Thank you for your service. I truly appreciate all that you and your family have given to ensure that our Great Country remains safe and free. God Bless you and your family.

  • Thank you for your service. I appreciate all you have given to ensure our safety and security. God Bless you and your family as they served too.

  • Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. Hm. Lessseee... is it possible the money will connect BHO and HRC to Biden, the dossier paid for by HRC, the british spy BHO enabled... etc..

  • This entire drama is simply to make voters doubt Trump, in the 2020 election. They know their candidates are weak. So what better way to help them out. Schiff is a very weak dishonest man. The only thing this ridiculous hearing will do is make ANY president in the future ineffective. MAybe that's the plan so Congress and Senate can just become the supreme power with out the fear of veto's. Trying to figure out this bunch of haters and liars is very hard.

  • its easy to figure out, brennan, schiff and the whistle blower conspired to commit treason and over throw the president of the united states, if the whistle blower is forced to testify then adam schiff and brennan will end up hanging from a light pole in front of the white house for the act of treason. schiff will do everything possible to keep the whistle blower from testifying and when their efforts fail schiff will drop the charges so he does not end up with a stretched neck to add to the pencil neck that props up his big bug eyed bulbus head.

  • Schiff:"You have said you don't know who the whistleblower is - even though no one believes you."

    I believe him. . . Like most other "facts" that schiftt has introduced, they are figments of schiftts imagination. We only have schiftts word that there is a whistleblower. schiftt has been caught and exposed in so many lies Who is to say that Schiftt did not dream up this individual (the whistleblower) so that he could continue this inquisition of PRESIDENT TRUMP and obstructing President TRUMPS fumigating the politics in DC.

  • Mr Unknown Whistleblower is a figment of schiftts imagination existing ONLY to continue this inquisition of PRESIDENT TRUMP
