Nothing will change after Thursday's House vote on impeachment rules and Republicans will vote against it because the push to impeach President Donald Trump is "a sham and has been such a sham since the beginning," Rep. Jim Jordan said Tuesday.
It's "all done in secret in a bunker in the basement of the capital, so I don't think anything is going to change, and frankly, even if they tried to change something to give a little bit of due process, we are all still going to vote against this," the Ohio Republican told Fox News' "Fox and Friends."
"You can't undo what they have already done."
There have already been eight depositions, he added, and Democrats have been leaking "selective parts" of the testimony, but not following any due process rules. House Speaker Nancy "Pelosi has called for a vote because Americans understand the impeachment inquiry is a sham and not fair," Jordan said.
"The president doesn't get counsel in the room," said Jordan. "The people from the State Department don't get agency counsel. We can't see the transcript unless we make a special appointment and some Democrats in the room are reviewing the transcript. They get to selectively leak things because we follow the rules and they don't."
He also predicted the impeachment vote will backfire on Democrats in next November's elections.
Jordan added he does not think the testimony of Lt. Col. Alexander Vinman, a member of the National Security Council who reported being concerned about what he'd heard on the telephone call between Trump and Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, will change any "fundamental facts," which were always in the transcript of the July 25 conversation.
