House GOP asks for Hunter Biden and whistleblower to testify in impeachment probe

House Republicans asked for their own impeachment witnesses on Saturday, sending Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) a list that includes former vice president Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden and the anonymous whistleblower who filed the initial complaint against President Trump.Also Saturday, Trump told reporters he’ll “probably” release on Tuesday the transcript of an April call he made to congratulate Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky after he won his election, according to a White House pool report.The impeachment probe moves from closed-door depositions to open hearings next week, which Democrats hope will present a strong case to the American public that bolsters support for impeaching the president.Republicans and the president have complained that the Democrats’ inquiry is unfairly partisan. Schiff is likely to reject many, if not all, of the witnesses from the Republicans’ wish list. When the Democrats deny them, the Republicans will then present that as evidence of a one-sided process.“We expect that 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 Pelosi,” wrote Devin Nunes (Calif.), ranking Republican on the Intelligence Committee. “Your failure to fulfill Minority witness requests shall constitute evidence of your denial of fundamental fairness and due process.”Witnesses who testified out of public view have corroborated the crux of the case against Trump — that he pressured Zelensky to investigate his political rivals — so the Democrats see no need for the whistleblower, who heard the story secondhand, to testify. Three career State Department officials are returning next week for the public hearings.The release of Trump’s other call with Zelensky ahead of the inquiry’s first public hearing seems unlikely to have a major impact, as witnesses have described that call as friendly and noncontroversial, according to transcripts.Republicans want to publicly question witnesses who would divert the conversation away from questions about Trump’s behavior to allegations only tangentially related to the case, such as unfounded claims that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election and that the Bidens acted nefariously in their dealings with Ukraine.Schiff said in a statement that the committee would evaluate the Republicans’ requests.“This in
