Republican breaks with Trump, insists whistleblower remain anonymous

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) likely didn't appreciate House Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Adam Schiff's (D-Calif.) denial of a House GOP request to have Hunter Biden and the anonymous whistleblower testify in the congressional impeachment inquiry's upcoming public hearings. On Saturday, the chairman said the impeachment inquiry will not be used to undertake investigations into the Bidens or the 2016 election.

Mr. Trump said Saturday that a transcript of another call he had with the president of Ukraine will "probably" be released on Tuesday.

House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes released a letter with the list.

That the whistleblower who reported concerns about Trump's attempt to pressure Ukraine for political purposes is biased against Trump, is sympathetic to the elder Biden and has fed the public a "false narrative".

The first public hearing will feature Bill Taylor, the acting USA ambassador to Ukraine, who already testified behind closed doors before congressional investigators that the president pushed Ukraine to investigate election interference, Biden and his son and their Ukrainian dealings - and that he was told US military aid and a White House meeting were used as leverage to get a public announcement from Kiev that the probes were underway.

Mr Schiff has said three witnesses will testify next week: US diplomat Bill Taylor and State Department official George Kent will appear on Wednesday, and former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch is set to testify Friday.

"My client's complaint has been largely corroborated". He continued, "You'll read the second call, and you'll tell me if there's anything wrong with it". "Nonetheless, I have offered to have my client respond in writing, under oath, and under penalty of perjury to Republican questions", Bakaj said in a statement to CNN.

On Saturday, Trump suggested other names should be added to the list for the inquiry, which he continues to call a "witch hunt". "And I also see the need for Hunter Biden to be called to adequately defend the president". It stated that he expects each of the witnesses to be called to "ensure Democrats treat the president with fairness, as promised by Speaker Pelosi".

Schiff said the committee is "carefully evaluating the witness list you provided, along with the written justifications you included".

He also mentioned both whistleblowers as possible witnesses he wanted on the list.

The whistle-blower complaint letter was submitted to Intelligence Inspector General Michael Atkinson. "As we move into the open hearing phase of the inquiry, the Committee is mindful that we are engaged in a sober endeavor rooted in the Constitution to determine whether the President of the United States engaged in misconduct that warrants impeachment by the House".

When will the hearings begin?

They previously have testified behind closed doors.
