WASHINGTON – House Republicans asked the chairman of the Intelligence Committee to call Hunter Biden, the anonymous whistleblower and others to testify during the public impeachment hearings that begin next week.

Rep. Devin Nunes of California, the committee’s top Republican, wrote to the panel’s Democratic Chairman, Adam Schiff, on Saturday in response to a Democratic request to justify calling the individuals.

“Americans see through this sham impeachment process, despite the Democrats’ effort to retroactively legitimize it,” Nunes wrote.

The Republicans want to hear from former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, a former director of Ukraine gas company Burisma Holdings; Devon Archer, another former board member; and Alexandra Chalupa, former employee of the Democratic National Committee.

“Mr. Biden’s firsthand experiences with Burisma can assist the American public in understanding the nature and extent of Ukraine’s pervasive corruption, information that bears directly on President Trump’s longstanding and deeply held skepticism of the country,” Nunes wrote.
