Republican Senator Josh Hawley has made the first move to subpoena former Vice President Joe Biden, his son, and far-left Representative Adam Schiff.
“The Missouri Republican is preparing to file subpoena requests for witnesses and documents that Democrats and Republicans alike won’t want to vote on, a tactic intended to convince a handful of senators to sink a vote next week to consider new evidence in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial,” Politico reported. “Hawley’s strategy harmonizes with plans from GOP Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky to force votes to hear from Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son who was on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma.”
He also took to Twitter and wrote, “I have drafted motions to subpoena Adam Schiff, the ‘whistleblower,’ Hunter Biden, and Joe Biden to testify. If the Senate calls witnesses, I will ask for votes on all these next week.”
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has sought to create a narrative that Senate Republicans are engaged in a cover-up because they are not allowing additional witnesses or evidence to be introduced into the trial outside of what the Democrat-controlled House already presented.
Schumer’s remarks contradict his past statements on the issue when he said that it made no sense for the Senate to call witnesses to testify when they were not called by the House.
Politico continued, “Hawley would also seek communications among the whistleblower, Schiff and his staff, transcripts of [Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael] Atkinson’s congressional testimony, communications between the House impeachment managers and Democratic presidential candidates as well as documents related to Biden’s drive to oust former Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin.”
On Friday, President Donald Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow also announced that he would be going after the Bidens when he told reporters that him and his team "will address" Joe and Hunter Biden's corrupt business dealings after House Democrats left the door wide open during their opening arguments.
"Why they opened up the door as wide as a double door on the Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Burisma issue, I guess they figured that was their way of getting ahead of it. We will address it," Sekulow announced as he floated the idea of calling on the Bidens to testify.
"I want you to think about this for a moment. Joe Biden was charged as vice president of the United States with Ukraine policy," Sekulow later added. "That was his specific charge. His son went to work for, went on the board of, the Ukrainian gas company [Burisma]. First, the vice president said he knew nothing about it, but the State Department knew about it, because they were concerned when people were being put up for confirmation that that issue might arise. So believe me, you’ll hear about that issue too."
