Republicans in Impeachment Probe Want to Question Biden’s Son, Whistleblower – By VOA News Staff (VOA News) / Nov 9 2019
Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives have submitted a list of witnesses they want to testify in the Democrat-led House impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, and it includes former Vice President Joe Biden’s son and the anonymous whistleblower whose allegations triggered the inquiry.
The ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes of California, sent the list Saturday to committee Chairman Adam Schiff of California, who is unlikely to approve all of the witnesses on it.
Investigators enter a new phase next week when they begin publicly questioning witnesses after weeks of closed-door testimony.
Schiff said three State Department witnesses are scheduled to appear in two hearings next week. U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor and career department official George Kent are to testify Wednesday, and former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch is to appear Friday.
