Whistleblower Is Expected to Testify Soon, Schiff Says

  Whistleblower Is Expected to Testify Soon, Schiff Says The whistleblower at the center of the impeachment probe of President Trump will testify in the House “very soon,” though in a way that will protect his identity, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said.The whistleblower, whose identity hasn’t been made public, works for the Central Intelligence Agency, The Wall Street Journal confirmed last week.

He said his efforts in Ukraine have the full support of Mr. Trump. He declined to say specifically whether he had briefed him on the planned meeting Also involved in planning the trip and pushing the investigations is Lev Parnas, a Ukrainian -American businessman who knows Mr. Giuliani well.

President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani appeared to contradict himself Sunday over whether he would cooperate with a House impeachment probe over the whistleblower complaint, but ultimately said he would if directed by Trump.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on Tuesday that he will invite President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about Ukraine.

"I will offer to Mr. Giuliani the opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee to inform the committee of his concerns," Graham said in a string of tweets.

Graham said that his decision came after hearing from Giuliani on "numerous occasions disturbing allegations ... about corruption in Ukraine and the many improprieties surrounding the firing of former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin."

"Given the House of Representatives' behavior, it is time for the Senate to inquire about corruption and other improprieties involving Ukraine," he added.

Graham didn't specifically mention former Vice President Biden or his son Hunter Biden as part of his public invitation.

But the hearing would likely give Giuliani a public forum to air his claims that the former vice president pushed a former top prosecutor in Ukraine to be fired to help his son. There's been no evidence of wrongdoing by the former vice president.
