Rep. Devin Nunes, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said there has been in a "disconnect" between what's been seen and heard in the public impeachment hearings so far, and what's been reported by media. Repeating a GOP argument in the hearings, Nunes raised questions about Democrats’ "prior coordination" with the whistleblower. Rep. Adam Schiff, the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, has previously said he doesn't know the identity of the whistleblower or communicated with them. Nunes spoke ahead of testimony from Jennifer Williams, an aide to Vice President, and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an Army officer who works for the National Security Council, on Nov. 19, in a public hearing as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. The impeachment inquiry has focused on a July 25 phone call in which Trump asked the president of Ukraine to investigate former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
