US House Republicans Want Hunter Biden, Whistleblower to Testify on Impeachment – Letter

WASHINGTON, Dec 7: US House Republicans want Hunter Biden, Congressman Adam Schiff, the whistleblower in the Trump-Ukraine Scandal, among others to testify in the panel’s impeachment hearings, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins said in a letter to Chairman Jerry Nadler.
“To provide context and transparency about the underlying facts at issue in this ‘impeachment inquiry,’ the American people deserve to hear from the following witnesses in the Judiciary Committee: Chairman Adam Schiff… The anonymous whistleblower whose complaint initiated this ‘impeachment inquiry’…Hunter Biden, former board member of Burisma Holdings,” the letter said on Friday.
The other individuals Collins listed include all people involved in drafting the whistleblower’s complaint; the intelligence community employee who spoke with Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman about US President Donald Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy; former Burisma Holdings Board Member Devon Archer; former contractor for opposition research firm Fusion GPS Nellie Ohr; and former Democratic National Committee staffer Alexandra Chalupa.
Collins requested that the committee immediately issue subpoenas to all of the individuals requested, except Schiff. He added that Republicans have the right to request additional testimonies if necessary.
On Monday, the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees will hear presentations on the next steps of the impeachment process. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that she had ordered the House Judiciary Committee to draft articles of impeachment against Trump.
