Saturday was the deadline for House Republicans to submit their proposed list of witnesses to Democrats.
Republicans not only included the whistleblower but also Hunter Biden, son of former VP Joe Biden.
Anyone the Republicans want to call as witnesses that Rep. Adam Schiff denies necessarily discredits the impeachment inquiry hearings. If these people (listed below) testify, the impeachment sham is blown wide open. My guess is Schiff will take the path of denying witnesses and try to spin from there.
But alas, the odds are high if John Durham also implicates some of these players in the Ukraine meddling, which will also expose Schiff for hiding witnesses that would damage is false impeachment narrative. Either way, the facts and the law are not on the Democrat’s side. They are merely trying to manipulate the process to keep the media narrative and news cycle in their favor. If this were a real court case, it would be thrown out.
House Republicans plan to call Hunter Biden, the Ukraine whistleblower and a range of other witnesses to testify in the upcoming public Trump impeachment hearings, according to a witness list obtained exclusively by Fox News.
It is unclear, at this point, how many of the Republicans’ proposed witnesses will be approved by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and the Democrats, because the newly-approved resolution governing the impeachment inquiry give the approval power to the chairman and the members of the majority.
“Americans see through this sham impeachment process, despite the Democrats’ efforts to retroactively legitimize it last week,” House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes wrote in a letter to Schiff on Saturday, referencing the impeachment rules.
“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 continued.

- Hunter Biden: The son of former Vice President Joe Biden and former board member of Burisma Holdings, Ukraine’s largest gas company.
- David Hale: The undersecretary of State for political affairs who testified behind closed doors on Nov. 6.
- Tim Morrison: National Security Council aide who testified behind closed doors on Oct. 31.
- Kurt Volker: Special envoy to Ukraine who testified behind closed doors on Oct. 3.
- Nellie Ohr: A contractor for research firm Fusion GPS who worked on the Steele dossier, an unverified 2016 document compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele alleging ties between Trump and the Kremlin.
- Devon Archer: Burisma board member Devon Archer, a business partner of Hunter Biden.
- Alexandra Chalupa: Democratic National Committee staffer who Republicans allege was part of Ukrainian efforts to interfere in the 2016 election.
If you honestly think Trump will be impeached, you should probably keep your therapist’s number handy.
Schiff will get exposed for the liar he is and will not let these people testify. Let America see how corrupt the Democrats are and will go to any length to get Trump out of the office for which he was legitimately elected.
Every honest American knows what this impeachment inquiry is about: It’s about the fact Dems are so upset Obama was such a failure (finished with the LOWEST overall approval rating of any president since Carter). The fact America chose Trump and rejected Hillary and the fact America is doing so incredibly well thanks to Trump. The Dems are furious!
Intelligence Committee Republican Devin Nunes wrote in a Saturday letter to Schiff, stating, “We expect 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 (Nancy) Pelosi.”
Schiff is a joke and dangerous. He lies constantly and the person in charge of the Democrats, Rep. Nancy Pelosi should know better. She should be cleaning up San Francisco, passing the USMCA, and doing what she was elected to do. Instead, she is spending all her time and energy on this false impeachment nonsense.
Biden is the one who committed the quid pro quo, not the President. When are these people going to be held accountable for their actions and crimes? Every day I get more and more disgusted with this double standard justice system. It is past time to clean house in Congress and the Deep State.
