Check who pushed a Git commit
git log shows me who created the commits, when and what are the commit comments. So I can know an original author of a commit. If such commit was pushed to a feature branch by the original author, I’d like to check who merged this commit to the production branch.

No, you would need an extra layer added to Git in order to record that kind of operation.
git log only display the committer and author, as recorded in the commit.
But that has no bearing on who is actually pushing said commit.
For instance, gitolite (an authorization layer) adds an audit trail mechanism, with logs.
See its log file format.
You can see who has merged the branch. When you make
git log --all you see all branches. There you can see the merge commits.
But the problem on Git is that you can define any author and email so you can’t be sure that its correct.
If you need access control you need something like gitolite.
