Rep. Jim Jordan brushed off President Trump’s tweets attacking Yovanovitch, blaming his frustration with Democrats.
“Look, the President has been frustrated with this relentless attack on him by the Democrats that started even before he was President. I think the American people can relate to the frustration. Democrats started in July 2016 with their crazy investigation and now they move into this, so I think that’s what drives that.”
He rejected the notion that Trump’s tweets amount to witness tampering.
“The witness is testifying. She wouldn’t even know about the quote if Mr. Schiff hadn’t read the tweet,” Jordan said.
