Graham: Impeachment inquiry is 'invalid' without whistleblower's testimony

Wait What? Klobuchar Argues There's 'No Reason' for Hunter Biden to Testify

Wait What? Klobuchar Argues There's 'No Reason' for Hunter Biden to Testify

Their request comes as the probe moves from closed-door depositions to open hearings next week.

Nunes writes that both Biden and Archer's time with Burisma "can assist the American public in understanding the nature and extent of Ukraine's pervasive corruption, information that bears directly on President Trump's long-standing and deeply-held skepticism of the country".

Schiff, a Democrat from California, responded to the letter later Saturday with his own two-page letter.

Democrats, who control the House of Representatives, must approve witness requests submitted by Republicans. The other was meant to show that Ukrainians, not Russians, meddled in the 2016 election, and that their goal was to help Hillary Clinton, not Trump - a narrative that elides the results of multiple probes showing Russian interference.

House Republicans are on the offensive demanding Hunter Biden and the Ukrainian phone call whistleblower to testify for the impeachment inquiry.

House Republicans came forward Saturday with a list of eight witnesses they want the House Intelligence Committee to hear from in the public hearings set to start this coming week.

There is no evidence of wrongdoing by either Joe or Hunter Biden in Ukraine.

That said, Graham says he's close to certain about the whistleblower's occupation, if not their identity.

When the Democrats deny the witnesses they've requested, the Republicans will then present that as evidence of a one-sided process.

That Trump's actions were, in fact, reasonable and did not meaningfully affect Ukraine.

A whistleblower complaint in September brought into attention a telephone conversation between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which Trump asked for a "favour".

Trump has dismissed all allegations of misconduct. And that's exactly what happened here.

Hurd spoke with Fox News anchor Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, where he argued to protect the whistleblower's identity but agreed with colleagues who have called for House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff to testify in the impeachment inquiry.

"This is not about Schiff finding the truth, this is about Schiff trying to destroy the Trump presidency", Graham said. At the same time, the whistleblower's input is irrelevant.

Trump has repeatedly denounced the whistleblower, saying he or she had only second-hand information and suggesting that whoever gave that person sensitive information was "close to a spy" and should face severe consequences.

Nunes, who served as chairman of the committee until the Democrats regained control of the House in the 2018 midterm, election, had written: "The minority members must identify all potential witnesses we wish to call before knowing the number, topics or scope of hearings you intend to convene".

One of the latest - Lt. Col. Vindman, the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council. "And any information that they can provide, you know, that basically deflects our attention away from what they did and what they're planning on doing is very useful to them".
