MSN reports Republican Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia challenged House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff to give witness testimony to the Judiciary Committee once he delivers a report summarizing his impeachment investigation.
“Come to the Judiciary Committee,” said Collins, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee. “Be the first witness, and take every question asked of you.”
A Democratic aide involved in the inquiry told Yahoo News that Schiff may well testify.
“It’s possible, but no decision has been made,” the aide said.
Collins made his comments at the tail end of a press conference where a group of 40 or so Republicans gathered after the House of Representatives held a preliminary vote Thursday on impeaching President Trump that split along partisan lines.
