(Tea Party PAC) – GOP lawmakers in the House are planning to call Hunter Biden as a witness in next week’s public impeachment hearings, according to a report from Fox News.
Now, that’s a damn good plan.
Fox obtained a list of witnesses selected by Republican lawmakers which included Biden and the so-called CIA “whistleblower.”
“Americans see through this sham impeachment process, despite the Democrats’ efforts to retroactively legitimize it last week,” House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes (R-CA) wrote to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), Asserting that it is vital the American people hear from such important witnesses as Biden, Biden’s business partner Devod Archer, and the “whistleblower” so as to “provide transparency” to Schiff’s “otherwise opaque and unfair process.”
Amen to that.
Archer, who also sat on the board of Ukranian gas and oil giant Burisma Holdings along with Biden, who was making tens of thousands of dollars per month although he had no experience in the field.
This, GOP lawmakers assert, will help Americans to grasp “the nature and extent of Ukraine’s pervasive corruption information that bears directly on President Trump’s longstanding and deeply-held skepticism of the country.”
They also maintain that the “whistleblower” should testify.
Nunes’ letter continued:
Because President Trump should be afforded an opportunity to confront his accusers, the anonymous whistleblower should testify. 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.
Among the other witnesses are Ukranian American consultant for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Alexandra Chalupa, and Fusion GPS/CIA double agent Nellie Ohr.
This comes on the heels of reports that GOP lawmakers had been considering whether to call the Bidens as witnesses were an impeachment trial to initiate in the Senate, as Joe Biden’s role in the firing of Ukranian prosecutor who was investigating Burisma was discussed in the phone call between President Donald Trump and the Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky which was the center of the Democrats’ impeachment allegations.
“I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,” Biden said while speaking at the Council of Foreign Relations in 2017.
“Well, son of a bitch. He got fired,” he added.
As Breitbart News reported, “Republicans are debating whether it would be wise to use the impeachment trial, if it comes to that point, to shine a light on the corruption of the Bidens in regards to their dealings in both Ukraine and China.”
The Washington Post reported that the idea of calling the Bidens to testify was floated by Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and John N. Kennedy (R-LA).
“The partisan impeachment resolution passed by House Democrats gives Schiff unprecedented power, granting him the ability to stiff-arm attempts to call the younger Biden as a witness,” Breitbart noted.
Nunes gave a stern warning to Schiff in the letter:
Because the Democrats’ resolution unfairly restricts Minority rights and because you have provided no information about which witnesses you may invite to testify at future hearings not yet scheduled, we reserve our right to request additional witnesses, if necessary, as you announce additional hearings.
“Your failure to fulfill Minority witness requests shall constitute evidence of your denial of fundamental fairness and due process,” he added.
