House GOP asks for Hunter Biden and whistleblower to testify in impeachment probe

Source: Washington Post

House Republicans sent Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff a list of witnesses they want to testify in the impeachment inquiry, including former vice president Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden and the anonymous whistleblower who filed the initial complaint against President Trump.

But Schiff is likely to reject many, if not all, of the witnesses from the Republicans' wish list.

"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. "Your failure to fulfill Minority witness requests shall constitute evidence of your denial of fundamental fairness and due process."

This will be DOA.

House GOP asks for Hunter Biden and whistleblower to testify in impeachment probe -- a request that Democrats are expected to reject

By Washington Post Staff
November 9, 2019 at 9:50 a.m. EST

In a July 25 call to the Ukrainian leader, President Trump pressed for an investigation of former vice president Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, who was on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma. The whistleblower's report of the call triggered the impeachment probe.

This is a developing story. It will be updated.

Wife of Bruce Ohr. Seems like they want to re-litigate the Steele Dossier?

4. It's propaganda. Repeats the fake narrative re 2016. They'll hammer it as part of "kangaroo court".


The antidote is to respond with the truth, quickly, and with repetitiveness to equal the propaganda, in the same social media.

to the Saudis and MBS who gave him lots of cash to pay off his debts.

7. I think they meant Hunter Benghazi.

They are seeking testimony from their alternate reality. Real corruption is the new Republican brand of patriotism.

8. Don't see this being approved. The impeachment rules require detailed justification for witnesses...


To allow for full evaluation of minority witness requests, the ranking minority member may
submit to the chair, in writing, any requests for witness testimony relevant to the investigation
described in the first section of this resolution within 72 hours after notice is given for the first hearing
designated pursuant to paragraph (1).

Any such request shall be accompanied by a detailed written justification of the relevance of the testimony of each requested witness to the investigation described in the first section of this resolution.

with your rules, RULES, RULES! You know republicans don't have to play by the rules, even if they DID write them! Rules are for little people, and Democrats, and little Democrats!

Rules! We're the GOP. We don't play by any stinking rules!

9. I wish media would ask this question of Republicans and publicize responses.

So, Senator x or Representative x, your defense of the quid pro quo of withholding aid to a foreign government for personal political gain means that when a future Democratic president withholds aid to a foreign government in return for dirt on a Republican presidential candidate you believe that action is perfectly legal and you will support the Democratic president in that action. Is that your position?

22. Funny how his report was never contested by any of them. And yet we still can't see it.

Or the actual TRANSCRIPTS, RECORDINGS of Trumps calls to world leaders that were locked away on the secret server, or the confiscated notes of the official note-taker with Putin conversations, or Kushners meetings with MBS, or....
Total criminal enterprise and pretty advanced gutting of most government agencies. Norquist and Bannon must be so proud. Traitors all.

...but Biden, his partner, the whistleblower and the Fusion GPS person? Not a chance.

16. This isn't about the hearings....

They are preparing the groundwork for barr's new report detailing hillary's collusion with the ukraine to steal the 2016 election by having the dnc hacked and the info dripped out day by day. Oh, and putin and russia had no part in the election tampering. It was biden and obamma.

I wish I was joking or exagerating, but the report is actually coming, along with faux grand jury subpoenas. The message is it's democratic corruption, and hunter and schiff will be key B list actors. And trump is just a hapless pawn.

Wait for it.....

But then they hold contradictory ideas in their little brains all the time with seemingly no ill effects.

and testifies under oath and on the record, maybe then consider telling those GOP committee members they can bring it up for discussion in committee. Not germain to the actual crimes the actual subject of impeachment actually committed and admitted, and produced documentation on, and provided corroborating witnesses to
