Republicans want to call Hunter Biden as a witness in impeachment hearing

Republicans have no unified argument in the impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump, in large part because they can't agree on how best to defend the president or even if they should.

"We expect that you will call each of the witnesses listed above to ensure that the Democrats" "impeachment inquiry' treats the President with fairness, as promised by Speaker Pelosi", wrote Devin Nunes (Calif.), ranking Republican on the Intelligence Committee.

"Americans see through this sham impeachment process, despite the Democrats' effort to retroactively legitimize it", Nunes wrote.

Schiff said last month that protecting the whistleblower was a priority for the committee.

He also has said there is no need to hear from the whistleblower because other witnesses broadly have substantiated the complaint.

"Whistleblowers should never ever be exposed", he said. "We will not stand for that".

Trump and his Republican allies deny there was any wrongdoing.

Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), right, and Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), left. He said Jordan has been "on the front lines in the fight for fairness and truth". "It seems interesting to me that Chairman Schiff is so sensitive".

Essex Police have started extradition proceedings to bring 22-year-old Eamonn Harrison from the Republic to the UK. Police suggested they waited until the entire identification process was complete before releasing the information.


There were three words President Donald Trump wanted to hear from the Ukraine president: Investigations, Biden and Clint. It later became known that Trump withheld military aid of up to $400 million.

That would require a level of consensus that Trump's call with the Ukraine president was "perfect", as he insists.

Despite attacks by Trump and his supporters against the Ukraine whistleblower, others, like the Central Intelligence Agency employee, will not be dissuaded from exposing wrongdoing, according to one who did.

House investigators will start questioning witnesses in open sessions next week.

"The intelligence community and Congress must continue to do all we can to protect the current whistleblower's identity and personal safety", said Sen. "Instead, they'd feel they have to go to the press. which could come with criminal charges".

Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-Va.), chairman of the House Oversight and Reform subcommittee on government operations, said Trump's actions "could have a chilling effect on the very whistleblowers we rely on to root out corruption and fraud in the federal government". As recently as 2017, he was supportive of whistleblowers staying anonymous, as first reported by the Daily Beast.

It's no mystery why so many Democrats can no longer connect to the white working class. Progressives promise free college, free health care, free child care, and scream in bafflement, What's wrong with you people? "The good thing is that we have continued to have people come forward, voluntarily, to this committee and we want to continue that and I will tell you that that will not happen if we tell you who our sources are and people that come to the committee".

The list also includes Alexandra Chalupa, former employee of the Democratic National Committee who Nunes said provided negative information on Trump and Hillary Clinton in the 2016 campaign.
