Schiff rejects Hunter Biden, 'whistleblower' as impeachment witnesses

House Republicans want to call Hunter Biden and the “whistleblower” as witnesses in the Democratic impeachment inquiry, but House Permanent Select Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is having none of it.

In a Saturday statement, the California Democrat said he would refuse to allow the public committee hearings, which begin Wednesday, to be used to pursue “sham investigations into the Bidens.”

“This inquiry is not, and will not serve, however, as a vehicle to undertake the same sham investigations into the Bidens,” said Mr. Schiff, “or 2016 that the President pressed Ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit or to facilitate the President’s effort to threaten, intimidate, and retaliate against the whistleblower who courageously raised the initial alarm.”

In a separate letter to Mr. Nunes obtained by CNN, Mr. Schiff said that the anonymous person “has a right under laws championed by this committee to remain anonymous and to be protected from harm.”

New - Schiff makes clear to Nunes that whistleblower will NOT be testifying, saying the inquiry has gathered evidence “that not only confirms but far exceeds” the complaint. “The whistleblower’s testimony is therefore redundant and unnecessary,” per letter obtained by CNN.

Was there any doubt that he would prevent him from testifying???? All one sided, no justice for any on President Trump’s side of the room! Just like the Russian collusion hoax! All made up! Spending millions of taxpayers dollars!

There should be a way to sue the national communists for wasting the money on known fabricated materials and investigations. It's our money, and just like j.g. Wentworth we want it back now.

This nut case is not a whistleblower under the guidelines set forth for labeling a whistleblower. They are a spy / leaker. Democrats will be surprised and made to look like the fools they are in the end with Shifty Schiff wearing the "DUNCE HAT".

So according to schiff, and anonymous person who claims to have heard something from somebody second hand, can make an accusation so profound that it calls for the impeachment of the President of the U.S. even though the official government group that oversees "Whistle blower" deemed it to be unfounded doesn't need to be named or questioned?

So whats going to stop ANY anonymous person from accusing Schiff of having relations with a goat?

"Sham investigation into the Bidens"???. Replay that tape of Joe Biden in his own words bragging about how he withheld the loan guarantee until that prosecutor was fired.
Son of a bitch!
