Rep Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) was finally assigned to House Intel Committee as announced by House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Friday. He is expected to challenge the effort of the House Democrats in the partisan impeachment against President Trump.

The move is meant to “put together the best team,” as indicated by the senior Republican aide to CBS News.

It was said before that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) would possibly be replaced but in the final decision, Rep Rick Crawford (R- Ark.) will temporarily step down.

McCarthy made his decision known in his tweet:

Jordan is reported to have more experience running investigations on the Oversight Committee than Nunes and decisively defends the president. 

He also insists on subpoenaing the so-called whistleblower for public testimony as part of the impeachment inquiry, saying:

Jordan is now collecting the list of witnesses that Republicans wish to interview but blasted the undue process that Schiff has been pushing forward on his tweet:

Jordan is scheduled to get on board next Wednesday, the day that the first public hearing is planned to commence.
