Jim Jordan pointed out today that Vindman is the only witness that was on the July 25 call that Schiff is blocking from answering questions regarding who he spoke to about the call:
Yet again, Chairman Adam Schiff blocks questions from Republicans, refusing to allow @Jim_Jordan to inquire about one of the two individuals Vindman read out about the July 25 call.

What Jordan is essentially doing is suggesting Vindman was the leaker of the call to the whistleblower and Schiff knows it. And of course, when he asks Vindman if he’s willing to tell us who he spoke with, Schiff shuts it down.
Jordan then responds with this epic retort:
Mr. Chairman, I don’t see how this is outing the whistleblower. The witness has testified in his deposition that he doesn’t know who the whistleblower is. You have said, even though no one believes you, you have said you don’t know who the whistleblower is. So how is this outing the whistleblower to find out who this individual is?
Schiff has no good answer and just tells Jordan to address his questions to witness and to stop trying to out the ‘whistleblower’.
