Rep. Zeldin: Fiona Hill Transcript Should Be Released

(Fox News' "America's Newsroom")

By    |   Tuesday, 15 October 2019 03:16 PM

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., who participated in the closed-door discussions Monday between the House Intelligence Committee and former White House Russia adviser Fiona Hill, said he wants all the information from the hearing to be made public. 

"I can't get into the substance of what was discussed," Zeldin told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" co-host Bill Hemmer. "It is not because I don't want the information to be out there. I actually want the entire transcript to be out there right now this morning."

Zeldin said he and Hemmer should be able to have a full conversation, instead of "this strategy of cherry-picking leaks," which will not give the full story of what had happened.

"I am not allowed to talk about anything that happened and that's why I'm calling for full transparency so we can have a conversation and the American public knows everything that is going on," Zeldin said. 

Meanwhile, it is not known if the people who are giving interviews now will at some point have to testify in public, Zeldin said. 

"There are no answers with regards to any of this," Zeldin said. "As far as whether or not there is going to be a vote to launch an impeachment inquiry is not known. Will the minority party be allowed to call witnesses?"

He further accused House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., of "making it up every morning" as the inquiry continues.

"I asked him before the start of the deposition last week what House rule is governing any of this?" Zeldin said. "He refused to answer that question, so there are no rules."
