At the very heart of the impeachment case against President Trump is Hunter Biden, son of former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden – and Republicans are threatening to haul him in as a witness in the Senate’s impeachment trial.
Democrats have based their impeachment case against President Trump around a phone call he held with the president of Ukraine, in which they claim Trump threatened to withhold funds from Ukraine unless that country investigated the Biden family’s dealings with Ukraine energy company Burisma.
Democrats have rejected any mention of improper dealings by the Bidens, or the massive amounts Hunter Biden was paid to sit on the Burisma board, but have accused Trump of asking Ukraine to investigate a “political opponent.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has demanded that “the president’s own men” be allowed to “come forward and tell their side of the story” as witnesses in the impeachment trial. Former national security adviser John Bolton has said he would be willing to testify.
However, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that if witnesses are brought in, Republicans will want to bring in witnesses too, including Hunter Biden.
Republicans are eager to know why Hunter Biden was given his lucrative roll on the Burisma board at the very time his father was vice president of the United States.
PLEASE TAKE OUR POLL TODAY – we want YOUR opinion! If Democrats insist on witnesses, should Republicans demand Hunter Biden testify at the impeachment trial?
In a Facebook Live video last month, Dennis Michael Lynch (DML), founder of DML News App and TeamDML.com said this impeachment trial could be the best thing to happen to President Trump, because it will allow Republicans to put former president Barack Obama and former vice president Joe Biden on trial.
