(CNN) Apparently, the House Republicans' best defense of Donald Trump from impeachment is to distract from the truth and instead push Trump's outlandish conspiracy theories.

That was made clear from the letter Rep. Devin Nunes (R-California) sent to House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California) on Saturday.

It listed the witnesses the Republicans are seeking to call in defense of Trump during the ongoing impeachment hearings. (Schiff still has to approve them in order to testify.)

The individuals the House Republicans want America to hear from include Alexandra Chalupa, a Ukrainian American who worked with the Democratic National Committee. Nunes writes that Chalupa will be a prime fact witness who can assist in helping us understand "President Trump's documented belief that the Ukrainian government meddled into the 2016 election to oppose his candidacy."

Of course, the conspiracy theory that Ukraine actually interfered in our 2016 election has been debunked to everyone but Trump and perhaps some of his staunchest supporters.

While we are at it, why don't House Republicans call witnesses who can help support more of "President Trump's documented belief," such as his claim that GOP Sen. Ted Cruz's father may have been involved in the assassination of JFK. Maybe they can call a witness to support Trump's suggestion that windmills cause cancer?
