Republicans call Hunter Biden, whistleblower and others to publicly testify

Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden attend an NCAA basketball game in Washington on Jan. 30 2010

Schiff wrote in a letter to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the Intelligence committee, that whistleblower's testimony isn't relevant now. It's of interest to House Democrats leading the inquiry.

He is expected to challenge the effort of the House Democrats in the partisan impeachment against President Trump. He added: "It's being driven by political people". Nunes, meanwhile, questioned in the very idea of the minority party suggesting a witness list to the majority, arguing that they should be able to call their own witnesses independently instead.

President Donald Trump reiterated on Saturday that the congressional impeachment investigation into his dealings with the Ukraine is a "witch hunt" while calling for former Vice President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to be called as witnesses in the inquiry.

Jordan is reported to have more experience running investigations on the Oversight Committee than Nunes and decisively defends the president.

"I'm trying to let the House know, 'You're dividing America for no good reason.' We got a lot of things we should be doing, like lowering drug costs and getting a trade deal with Canada and Mexico", he added.

U.S President Donald Trump talks to the media before leaving the White House.

In a Fox News interview Sunday, Graham said he believes it would be beneficial to have Biden testify, but was even more adamant about the whistleblower, whose complaint about President Trump's phone call in July with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky spurred the impeachment inquiry.

"Although you publicly claim nothing inappropriate was discussed, the three committees deserve to hear directly from you the substance and circumstances surrounding any discussions conducted with the whistleblower, and any instructions you issued regarding those discussions", Nunes also wrote. However, the president has repeatedly denied committing any wrongdoing and said there was no quid pro quo.

Later the same day, President Trump said some of his suggestions for the Republicans' list of potential witnesses did not make the cut. "Nobody in America goes to jail or has anything done to them without confronting their accuser", he told Fox News on October 6.
