U.S. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff told reporters: “Not only is the Congress being deprived of his testimony... but we are also aware that the ambassador has text messages or emails on a personal device, which had been provided to the State Department, although we have requested those from the ambassador, and the State Department is withholding those messages as well.” “Those messages are also deeply relevant to this investigation and the impeachment inquiry,” Schiff added.
