House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) concluded Wednesday's public impeachment hearing by claiming he did not know the identity of the so-called whistleblower whose complaint jump-started the inquiry.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) asserted that Schiff was the "only member" of Congress who knows the whistleblower's identity and asked him when Republicans would be allowed to learn that information and question the individual.

Schiff responded, "I do not know the identity of the whistleblower, and I’m going to make sure that identity is protected."
