Matt Gaetz said Hunter Biden and the Whistleblower will be the top witnesses.
House Judiciary Committee member Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) said that if Republicans can manage it, Hunter Biden and the anonymous whistleblower at the center of the impeachment inquiry would testify in front of the committee.
“If we can prove that the president’s questions about Hunter Biden, about Burisma were legitimate, that they were well-founded in what our diplomatic corps and what other professionals believe, then it can’t possibly be this, you know, this shakedown that [Rep.] Adam Schiff and [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi are spewing to the American people,” Gaetz told Fox News. “And so that’s why getting that exculpatory evidence into the record is so important.”
Gaetz, who led a group of Republican lawmakers into a secure House Intelligence Committee-led impeachment deposition last month, said the son of former Vice President Joe Biden would be called if he had a say.
“Hunter Biden would be probably one of our top witnesses. I think the whistleblower would be a witness,” Gaetz told Fox. “And I think that others who can expound on the testimony of George Kent that reflect on the concerns with Burisma and the ingrained corruption with that company.”
