  • House Republicans Put Whistleblower and Hunter Biden on List of Witnesses They Want to Testify at Impeachment Hearings

In a letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, Republicans listed the anonymous whistleblower, former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden, former U.S. special envoy for Ukraine Kurt Volker, high-ranking State Department official David Hale and Tim Morrison, the top Russian Federation and Europe adviser on the National Security Council.

The Biden presidential campaign declined to comment to CNN Saturday on the request for the former vice president's son to testify.

House Republicans want to call Hunter Biden and the "whistleblower" as witnesses in the Democratic impeachment inquiry, but House Permanent Select Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is having none of it.

President Donald Trump and various members of the Republican Party, including Sens.

House Republicans released their request for witnesses on Saturday, including Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, an individual referred to as "the anonymous whistleblower, "senior diplomat Kurt Volker, Tim Morrison, the senior director for Europe and Russian Federation on the White House National Security Council, and Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs David Hale".

He also called the original whistleblower's testimony "redundant and unnecessary" and said that an appearance would put the whistleblower's personal safety at risk.

Preserving the whistleblower's anonymity, he added, is a top priority. "So you have direct evidence, not indirect evidence".

Even some Republicans agree that the whistleblower's identity should remain shielded. Texas Republican Rep. Will Hurd, who previously worked as an undercover officer with the Central Intelligence Agency, said on Fox News Sunday that unmasking the whistleblower could have a chilling effect on would-be whistleblowers. "Is it because we found out that he [Schiff] met with, and his staff met with him?" said McCarthy questioning the reason for Adam Schiff to block the whistleblower from testifying in from of the Impeachment inquiry committee.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff responded to Republicans in a letter saying that the committee was evaluating the witness list, but said that the impeachment inquiry would not "serve as vehicles for any Member to carry out the same sham investigations into the Bidens or debunked conspiracies about the 2016 USA election interference that President Trump pressed Ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit". "I believe it was inappropriate". John Kennedy of Louisiana, said the president's behavior may have crossed the line. "Your failure to fulfill minority witness requests shall constitute evidence of your denial of fundamental fairness and due process", Nunes wrote in the letter to Schiff.

"You can't limit the witnesses", Kennedy said.

At campaign-style rallies, including one in Louisiana last week, Trump has again and again called for publication of the whistleblower's identity, drawing sharp objections from the individual's legal team.

On NBC's "Meet the Press", Sen. "So the thing is I think it's a mistake to say, 'Oh, he withheld aid, until he got what he wanted.' Well, if it's corruption, and he believes there to be corruption, he has every right to withhold aid".

But Democrats maintain that President Trump's attempts to enlist a foreign power to dig up dirt on a political rival in order to help his re-election bid was an abuse of power.

Some of the witnesses Republicans have requested may be allowed, she added, including National Security Council official Tim Morrison and former Ukraine envoy Kurt Volker, both of whom have already testified behind closed doors.
