On ABC's "This Week," Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), said that although Trump's behavior might have been inappropriate, "I do not believe it was impeachable".

(AP) Democrats must approve any requests submitted by Republicans and they are expected to reject the requests for Hunter Biden and the whistleblower to appear. "The whistleblower's testimony is therefore redundant and unnecessary".

"These witnesses should come public, and the American people should judge for themselves, as well as we will, as to what happened", Swalwell said, arguing the witnesses have been consistent but it's important for them to testify publicly as well.

Since then, members of Congress have debated whether or not the whistleblower should remain anonymous. Republicans also want to question Alexandra Chalupa, a DNC contractor who tried to get dirt on Trump campaign from the Ukrainian embassy and Nellie Ohr, the wife of a DoJ official and a contractor with for Fusion GPS, the research and intelligence group paid by Hillary Clinton's campaign to produce the notorious Sleele dossier.

He added, however, "I do not believe it was impeachable".

Adam Schiff responded to Republicans in a letter saying that the committee was evaluating the witness list, but said that the impeachment inquiry would not "serve as vehicles for any Member to carry out the same sham investigations into the Bidens or debunked conspiracies about the 2016 US election interference that President Trump pressed Ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit".

"When you find out who is the whistleblower is, I'm confident, you're gonna find out it's somebody from the deep state".
