Chuck Schumer Challenges Republicans to Call Hunter Biden: ‘You Know Why They Don’t?’

President Donald Trump’s defenders have made much of potentially calling former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, to testify in the Senate impeachment trial. However, summoning either Biden would only help to disprove the conspiracy theories Trump and his allies have promoted.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer almost dared Republicans to subpoena Hunter Biden on Friday’s Morning Joe. 

“Let me just say this — the witnesses that we have asked for are eyewitness, like Mick Mulvaney, to everything that happened,” Schumer said.

“And the few Republicans, there are some, who are saying, well I don’t know if this is all really true. It’s all secondhand, which is isn’t, but still, every one of these witnesses, these documents, will answer this directly.”

“Hunter Biden has nothing to do with this. And by the way, and people forget this, the Republicans could call Hunter Biden on their own. They have 53 votes. You know why they don’t? Because they know that will just confirm to every American that everything the President is doing, has done, in this whole sad saga, everything the President’s lawyers are doing, everything the Republican senators are doing is just political.”

“They call in Hunter Biden. Someone totally unrelated to the charges against the President.”
