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.

The conservative news site obtained a letter written by Rep. Devin Nunes in which the House Intelligence Committee’s Ranking Member listed the names of GOP’s proposed witnesses and lambasting the impeachment process against President Donald Trump.

“Americans see through this sham impeachment process, despite the Democrats’ efforts to retroactively legitimize it last week,” Nunes wrote in a letter to Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff Saturday, apparently a reference to House Democrats’ recent approval of a resolution governing the rules for the public impeachment hearings, set to begin next week. Under the resolution, Chairman Schiff is charged with approving proposed witnesses.

“To provide transparency to your otherwise opaque and unfair process, and after consultation with [House Oversight Committee] Ranking Member Jim Jordan and [House Foreign Affairs Committee] Ranking Member Michael McCaul, the American people deserve to hear from the following witnesses in an open setting,” he wrote.

According to the report, the first witness House Republicans want to hear from is Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, and the whistleblower who filed the initial complaint that led to the impeachment inquiry against President Trump. To this point there has been no evidence that Hunter Biden engaged in any unlawful behavior and the whistleblower’s initial claims have already been corroborated by multiple government officials testifying under oath.

“Because President Trump should be afforded an opportunity to confront his accusers, the anonymous whistleblower should testify,” Nunes wrote. “Moreover, given the multiple discrepancies between the whistleblower’s complaint and the closed-door testimony of the witnesses, it is imperative that the American people hear definitively how the whistleblower developed his or her information, and who else the whistleblower may have fed the information he or she gathered and how that treatment of classified information may have led to the false narrative being perpetrated by the Democrats during this process.”

Just a reminder to you raithful reader that there is no evidence that Hunter Biden did anything wrong, and also that all of this is in service to Trump’s conspiracy theory that the Russians were not responsible for the 2016 election interference and that it was the Ukrainians working with Hillary Clinton and the DNC instead. 

By the way I would not hold my breath waiting for an appearance by Huner Biden in front of this committee. 

Ain’t gonna happen. 

Update: Adam Schiff has already shut Nunes down.

Toldja.

    Just as the Dems voted on the impeachment investigation though they didn’t have to, I have no problem with Hunter Biden being called to testify. On the other hand, I do have a problem with calling the whistleblower to testify unless it is done with all protections in place to protect the anonymity guaranteed a whistleblower.

      It is all so frustrating. We’re taught to tell the truth as kids, yet one has to fear for their life if it’s of a political nature.

    Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said Trump’s request raises “serious concerns about the president’s perception of the Justice Department as a partisan political instrument and his willingness to use the power of federal law enforcement in pursuit of his own objectives.”

      Honest question. What good is FOIA when the good stuff is redacted?

Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.)>“We have enough evidence from the depositions that we’ve done to warrant bringing this forward ― evidence of an extortion scheme using taxpayer dollars to ask a foreign government to investigate the president’s opponent,”

    “We’re kicking their ass.”
    “I’m not concerned about anything. The testimony has all been fine,” the president said, adding that “for the most part, I’ve never heard of these people. I have no idea who they are.”
    “They shouldn’t be having public hearings,” “This is a hoax. This is just like the Russian witch hunt.” “It was just explained to me that for next weeks Fake Hearing (trial) in the House, as they interview Never Trumpers and others, I get NO LAWYER & NO DUE PROCESS,” the president tweeted. “It is a Pelosi, Schiff, Scam against the Republican Party and me. This Witch Hunt should not be allowed to proceed!”
    The White House released an edited memo summarizing the call with Zelensky, which Trump wrongly claims was a “word for word” transcript.
    “All that matters is one thing: the transcript. And the transcript is perfect,” “If they want it, I’ll give it to ’em,”

      Pretty darn rich, pun intended, for them to call out what they do themselves.

    Guess Nunes has found some spare time while he’s busy suing his “cow” on Twitter.

      It’s like the Bristol trolls that post here, Lynne. Are you so thin skinned that you can’t take some good ol’ fashioned snark?
      NO one made you enter public life; that was your choice. Period. A testament to character, which is sorely lacking.

    Of course he does. And they can refuse just like John Bolton and Mick Mulvaney. Why should Democrats have to follow the law when Republicans are allowed to defy it without consequences?

    I so hope Nunez gets his ass kicked out of Congress in 2020.
