"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", Nunes warned, clearly aware the request was likely to be denied.

President Donald Trump said he's prepared to release the transcript sought by House Democrats of his first phone call with Ukraine's president, in April, as soon as Tuesday. "So you'll read the second call and you'll tell me if you think there's anything wrong with it".

Trump said the second transcript would probably be released on Tuesday. "Specifically, I request that you sit for a closed-door deposition before the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight Committees".

In addition to Hunter Biden, they also want to hear from Biden's business partner, Devon Archer, who served with Biden on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company.

"The impeachment inquiry, moreover, has gathered an ever-growing body of evidence - from witnesses and documents, including the President's own words in his July 25 call record - that not only confirms, but far exceeds, the initial information in the whistleblower's complaint", Schiff wrote.

Trump later took to Twitter with additional recommendations for witnesses, saying "Shifty Adam Schiff" and others should be added to the list.

Presidents have long used sporting events to woo support, but it's also a venue for fans to express their own political leanings. LSU beat Alabama, 46-41, Alabama's first loss of the season and first home loss in 31 games, stretching back to 2015.

House Republicans over the weekend submitted a list of witnesses they would like to call for public testimony during the impeachment inquiry, but Schiff - who is running the probe - was swift to reject the request to have the whistleblower come forward.

Schiff was visibly displeased with the initiative as he said that it is the House Republicans seek to turn the process into "sham investigation" - this time against his fellow Democrats - Bidens.

House Republicans, in their ever-increasing efforts to disrupt congressional impeachment proceedings, have thrown one more curveball into the mix.

House Republicans serving on the impeachment inquiry investigative committees said they are planning to call Hunter Biden and the whistleblower as witnesses to testify in the impending public hearings, according to a Saturday report from Fox News.

Meanwhile, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) noted in a statement that Trump should be able to cross-examine his accusers.
