Top Republicans on three congressional committees, leading the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, blasted Rep. Adam Schiff for shifting course on calling the CIA "whistleblower" to testify before Congress.

According to a letter obtained by the Daily Caller, the Republicans requested that Schiff arranges public testimony for any other persons he uses for the alleged 12 complaints about Trump’s actions toward Ukraine.

Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Devin Nunes of California and Michael McCaul of Texas wrote in the letter to Schiff:

“We are surprised by your announcement that the Committees will not receive testimony from the anonymous intelligence community employee whose complaint initiated the so-called impeachment inquiry."

They also noted that before the House Intelligence Committee released the whistleblower complaint, Schiff had committed to “very soon” calling the whistleblower to provide “unfiltered” testimony.

The Republicans claim Schiff suddenly changed course “following revelations that the employee had a bias against President Donald Trump and that you had received a secret, an early account of the allegations.”

The whistleblower, still unidentified, met with a staffer working for Schiff before filing the complaint.

The Washington Examiner reported that two former National Security Council staffers worked with the so-called whistleblower in the Obama and Trump administrations.

But Schiff indicated he was unaware of the subject matter before the release of the complaint.

He also failed to mention that someone in his office had met the whistleblower.

Earlier this month, Former U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy said Schiff had made himself a "fact witness" after revelations his office had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower.

Speaking on "The Story with Martha MacCallum" on Friday, Gowdy Said:

"Right now, he's made himself a fact witness."

"He is in the evidentiary chain for what happened with this whistleblower, and I hope the Republicans make him testify."

On Tuesday, the Democrat-led House of Representatives voted to reject a resolution to censure House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) over his handling of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

The vote was cast on Monday evening, with 218 to 185 voting to table, or set aside, the resolution.
