Attorney and law professor, John Yoo, spoke with Fox News host Shannon Bream Friday where he weighed in on the GOP’s requested witness list pertaining to Democrats’ “impeachment inquiry”.

The list was revealed on Saturday by Fox News and House Republicans plan to call Hunter Biden, the Ukraine whistleblower and a range of other witnesses to testify in the upcoming public hearings.

The requested witness list includes the following: Devon Archer, Hunter Biden, Alexandra Chalupa, David Hale, Tim Morrison, Nellie Ohr, Ambassador Kurt Volker, the anonymous whistleblower, and all individuals relied upon by the anonymous whistleblower in drafting his or her secondhand complaint.

Shannon Bream explained that the Democrats get to decide which of the witnesses, any of them, will actually get called to testify publicly. “How do you think this will work, because you know the Republicans are going to make a big stink if they don’t get some of the people they request on the list or any of them?” Bream asked John Yoo.

“The first thing I would assume the Republicans are going to do is to pursue this storyline that maybe House Democrats were cooperating with the whistleblower and some of the witnesses. They want to raise questions where there’s been some kind of coordination of stories, which would raise doubt. And then, if they really want to be mischievous, they might say, ‘We want to have Hunter Biden and Joe Biden called up for questions,” Yoo said.

“Now, you’re exactly right. The House under these new rules has the power to refuse to issue subpoenas and allow these witnesses to appear. But again, I think that’s going to create a devastating image of the House investigation, refusing to be fair and transparent, which will all but guarantee that the trial will fail in the Senate, and the American people will be suspicious of the outcome of impeachment,” he added.

After seeing the Republican’s witness list on Saturday, however, President Trump recommended five “additional” individuals to be added to the list.

“I recommend that Nervous Nancy Pelosi (who backed up Schiff’s lie), Shifty Adam Schiff, Sleepy Joe Biden, the Whistleblower (who miraculously disappeared after I released the transcript of the call), the 2nd Whistleblower (who also disappeared), & the I.G., be part of the list!” the President suggested.

“Whatever happened to the so-called ‘informer’ to Whistleblower #1? Seems to have disappeared after I released the Transcript of the call. Shouldn’t he be on the list to testify? Witch Hunt!” President Trump asked. (Video Below)
