"When you find out who the whistleblower is, I'm confident you're gonna find out it's somebody from the deep state", he said during the interview.

Democrats claim that the whistleblower's testimony is irrelevant at this point because the witnesses who have already testified have provided more information on President Trump's July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at the heart of the inquiry than the whistleblower would be able to give.

Trump has said the call was "perfect" and most Republicans have stood by him in his defense. "There's never been a president who's been so transparent". Trump himself also added fuel to the fire by tweeting on Saturday that the mysterious whistleblower somehow disappeared and should be on the witnesses list for the hearing.

"Americans see through this sham impeachment process, despite the Democrats' efforts to retroactively legitimize it last week", Nunes wrote in a letter to Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff Saturday, apparently a reference to House Democrats' recent approval of a resolution governing the rules for the public impeachment hearings, set to begin next week.

Witnesses have testified that Trump directed Ukrainian leaders to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading 2020 candidate, and have indicated that the Trump administration withheld aid in return for Ukraine's announcing an investigation into Biden.

Schiff was visibly displeased with the initiative as he said that it is the House Republicans seek to turn the process into "sham investigation" - this time against his fellow Democrats - Bidens. "Because President Trump should be afforded an opportunity to confront his accusers, the anonymous whistleblower should testify". House Democrats soon thereafter launched an impeachment inquiry on the ground of abuse of presidential powers and soliciting a foreign power to interfere in U.S. elections by digging up dirt on a political opponent.

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.

She added, "And the whistleblower has great risk associated with his life right now".
