(The Hill) Jessica Campisi 11/09/19 09:32 AM House Republicans plan to call Hunter Biden and the Ukraine whistle-blower among other witnesses to testify as the Democrats impeachment inquiry into President Trump shifts to a new public phase. Americans see through this sham impeachment process despite the Democrats efforts to retroactively legitimize it last week Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) the House Intelligence Committees top Republican wrote in a letter to the panels Democratic chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Saturday. He continued: 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." In requesting testimony from the whistle-blower whose complaint sparked the impeachment inquiry Nunes said Trump should be afforded an opportunity to confront his accusers" especially with what he claimed were discrepancies" between the whistle-blowers complaint and witnesses closed-door testimony. It is imperative that the American people hear definitively how the whistle-blower developed his or her information and who else the whistle-blower 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" Nunes wrote. In addition to the anonymous whistle-blower whose complaint about Trumps July 25 call with Ukraine is at the center of the impeachment inquiry Republicans also plan to call Bidens former business partner Devon Archer.
