House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told Margaret Brennan, the host of "Face the Nation" on CBS, that the very first person he would want to question in the Democrats' bogus impeachment probe would be House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA).

"Well, the very first person I think we should bring is Adam Schiff and his staff. He is the only individual in America–" McCarthy said.

"For a public hearing?" a confused Brennan asked. "You want to question the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee?"

"Yes, I would, because he's the only person who knows who this whistleblower is. He refers to himself as a Ken Starr. Ken Starr testified," McCarthy said. 

There are numerous questions McCarthy has for Schiff.

"How many times did he meet with the whistleblower? What did he talk to the whistleblower about?" McCarthy asked. "Because even when the whistleblower went to the inspector general, he never mentioned that he met with Adam Schiff."

According to the House Minority Leader, the American public should have all the facts about the whistleblower's complaint and the chain of events. 

"The public deserves the facts, not something that's leaked," he said. "We're three weeks since the very first hearing inside there, the deposition. We still do not have the transcripts."

McCarthy reminded Brennan of one important tidbit: the House's formal impeachment vote was a way for them to "justify what has already happened without ever reading one word of what's gone on."

Schiff received the whistleblower's complaint a month before turning it over to the full House Intelligence Committee. We know he received his information second and third-hand. He wasn't even on President Trump's call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The White House released the full transcript, which showed no quid pro took place. Trump simply asked Zelensky to look into the Bidens' business dealings in Ukraine. After all, Joe Biden's son, Hunter, was being paid $50,000 a month to sit on the board of a Ukrainian gas company despite having no natural energy experience. And Joe was handling international relations with Ukraine on behalf of the Obama administration.
