On Twitter, Hawley 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.”
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 added, “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.”
