Here is Rep. Ratcliffe (R-TX) speaking to reporters on Friday.
Rep. Ratcliffe: No where else in the United States of America can you be both the fact witness and the lead prosecutor for an investigation in ANYTHING much less an investigation to remove the president from office. It’s entirely inappropriate and Chairman Schiff should be disqualified from running an investigation where his committee members or staff are fact witnesses about contact with the whistleblower and the whistleblower process.
