Asked on “Fox News Sunday” whether he was concerned about the development, the congressman replied, “Well, actually, not at all.”
“One of our concerns has always been there hasn’t been firsthand knowledge of this. The first whistleblower, virtually everything he accused was second and thirdhand knowledge,” Stewart said, before arguing that a new whistleblower would only confirm what the public already knows about Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“Why should I care at all what his perspective, or is opinion or judgment, of this transcript is? You and I can read it,” Stewart added, referring to a publicly disclosed White House memorandum of the leaders’ conversation.
