The GOP sent their witness list to House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Adam Schiff (D-CA), which included Hunter Biden, the son of former vice president Joe Biden, and the anonymous intelligence community whistleblower, whose complaint about a July 25 phone call between President Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky set off the impeachment inquiry.
Schiff, however, rejected the request by Republicans to have the alleged whistleblower testify at next week’s public impeachment inquiry hearings, claiming that their testimony was “redundant and unnecessary.” Schiff himself said in September the whistleblower would appear before Congress “very soon,” but has since backtracked after he admitted his staff met with the whistleblower.
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) took to Twitter Sunday after appearing to read the GOP’s list of witnesses they would like to testify and inferred the list as containing “sham witnesses”, which includes the “whistleblower”.
Jefferies tweeted, “House Republican #CoverUpCaucus wants sham witnesses to testify.”
“My two cents? GET LOST,” he added. (See Below)
