  • Republicans Ask For Whistleblower, Hunter Biden To Testify In Impeachment Inquiry

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif. has listed the anonymous whistleblower on a list of witnesses Republicans will like to call as part of the impeachment inquiry. When asked if he'd read key portions of recent transcripts of the ongoing impeachment inquiry, Graham said, "I've written the whole process off".

"The Committee is evaluating the Minority's witness requests and will give due consideration to witnesses within the scope of the impeachment inquiry, as voted on by the House", Schiff added. Nunes also accused Schiff of fabricating evidence in order to cast "in a sinister light" the telephone call at the inquiry's heart.

"Well, because what's going to happen, when you find out who the whistleblower is, I'm confident you're going to find out it's somebody from the deep state", Graham said.

Republicans also want to hear from a business associate of Hunter Biden, a former Democratic National Committee staffer, a former contractor at the private intelligence firm Fusion GPS, and several current and former US officials who have already testified behind closed doors in the impeachment inquiry.

But the overall White House impeachment-defense strategy, which has included a furious personal focus by Trump on the individual behind the complaint, has prompted some unease in Republican ranks.

However, Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

The whistleblower's attorney reacted on Saturday to the GOP's call for testimony from his client by reiterating that the person is only willing to answer questions in writing.

Mr. Trump asked the Ukrainian leader to investigate possible corruption regarding Hunter Biden and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, prompting Democrats to accuse the president of leveraging foreign aid to dig up dirt on a political opponent.

"My client's complaint has been largely corroborated".

The whistle-blower in a complaint alleges that Trump abused his official powers "to solicit interference" from Ukraine in the 2020 election.

Prior to the revelation that Schiff and his staff had secretly worked with the anti-Trump complainant before he even filed a complaint against Trump, Schiff repeatedly denied any contact with the complainant.

As vice president, Joe Biden pressured Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, because Biden and other Western officials said Shokin was not sufficiently pursuing corruption cases. "And I also see the need for Hunter Biden to be called to adequately defend the president". The open hearings will be the first time the United States hears directly from the officials at the center of allegations against Trump.

The US Republican party on Saturday fought back against an impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump by calling for the son of his main rival Joe Biden to be called as a witness.

"Schiff likely will reject the requests for Hunter Biden, Archer and several other proposed witnesses because their testimonies - as described in Nunes' letter - appear to fall outside guidelines set by the Democrats".

This week's public hearings will start Wednesday with testimony from two diplomats: William Taylor, the acting USA ambassador to Ukraine, and George Kent, the deputy assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs.
