Whistleblower Q&A Offer Still Awaiting An Official 'No' From Republicans

House Republicans Put Whistleblower and Hunter Biden on List of Witnesses They Want to Testify at Impeachment Hearings

"Evidence of an extortion scheme, using taxpayer dollars to ask a foreign government to investigate the president's opponent", Swalwell told Brennan on Face the Nation Sunday.

Democrats, who hold the House majority, are expected to overrule the request.

But Republicans do not want to focus on the much-discussed July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky, or even on events of recent months. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), have called on Democrats to reveal the Ukrainian whistleblower's identity. Nunes said the president should have the opportunity to confront his accuser.

President Trump on Sunday called on Republicans to fully support his "perfect" Ukraine call and not just attack the impeachment inquiry.

"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 tweeted.

Trump says second Ukraine transcript to be released
Mitt Romney, R-Utah, have largely avoided directly criticizing Trump's phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Mulvaney has asked to join a lawsuit brought by another of the president's advisers challenging a congressional subpoena.

On NBC's "Meet the Press", Sen.

While continuing to attack the inquiry process as tainted, Republicans signaled with Saturday's proposed witness list that they meant to try to turn the spotlight away from accusations that the president abused his power for political ends and instead would seek to discredit US intelligence findings, reaffirmed by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, that Russian Federation interfered with the 2016 election with the aim of aiding Trump. "The whistleblower's testimony is therefore redundant and unnecessary".

"It's impossible to bring this case forward, in my view, fairly without us knowing who the whistleblower is and having a chance to cross-examine them about any biases they may have", he said.

Some of the witnesses Republicans have requested may be allowed, she added, including National Security Council official Tim Morrison and former Ukraine envoy Kurt Volker, both of whom have already testified behind closed doors. Will Hurd, R-Texas, said the impeachment inquiry "has been a partisan exercise from the very beginning". Ukrainian officials say Hunter Biden is not suspected of any wrongdoing. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney of NY said he couldn't speak for Schiff but that figures like Hunter Biden and the whistleblower would not fall into that category. "So the thing is I think it's a mistake to say, 'Oh, he withheld aid, until he got what he wanted.' Well, if it's corruption, and he believes there to be corruption, he has every right to withhold aid".

"I remain sympathetic with President Trump's legitimate concerns about the corruption", Sen. "I don't hear that". Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said on CNN's "State of the Union".
