Republican Georgia Rep. Doug Collins listed House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff as the top witness he wanted to question as impeachment moves before the Judiciary Committee.
Collins, 53, discussed whom he would like to question as part of the impeachment hearings when the House Judiciary Committee takes over the proceedings from the House Intelligence Committee as soon as next week. As ranking member, Collins can request testimony from witnesses, but Chairman Jerrold Nadler will have final say over who testifies.
During an interview on Fox News Sunday, Collins said his number one request will be that Schiff testifies about his knowledge of the whistleblower whose complaint laid the foundation for the House’s impeachment investigation.
“The first and foremost, the first person that needs to testify is Adam Schiff. Adam Schiff is the author of this report. Adam Schiff has been the author of many things, a lot of them found to be false over the past couple of years but he’s gonna be the author of the report,” Collins explained, later adding, “My first and foremost witness in Adam Schiff.”
