House Republicans are calling Hunter Biden to testify in the upcoming public impeachment hearings. "Because President Trump should be afforded an opportunity to confront his accusers, the anonymous whistleblower should testify".

"This inquiry is not, and will not serve, however, as a vehicle to undertake the same sham investigations into the Bidens or 2016 that the President pressed Ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit, or to facilitate the President's effort to threaten, intimidate, and retaliate against the whistleblower who courageously raised the initial alarm", Schiff wrote.

Trump has dismissed all allegations of misconduct.

Nunes said testimony from Hunter Biden and the whistleblower would boost transparency in an "opaque and unfair process".

Schiff wrote in a letter to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the Intelligence committee, that whistleblower's testimony isn't relevant now.

Democrats, who hold the House majority, are expected to overrule the request.

This complaint pressured Ukraine to investigate former Vice-President Joe Biden, a potential opponent for the 2020 White House race, and his son Hunter Biden, and this investigation led to the start of an impeachment inquiry of Trump by the Democratic-led House of Representatives.

"This is not about Schiff finding the truth, this is about Schiff trying to destroy the Trump presidency", Graham said.

US President Donald Trump on Saturday said he was going to release the transcript of the second call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky this week in his battle against the ongoing impeachment inquiry that enters a new phase of public hearings that will be aired live.

Gordon Sondland, the USA ambassador to the European Union, revised his testimony last week to admit he had linked unfreezing almost $400 million in military aid to Ukraine in exchange for Kiev publicly opening the investigations.

Schiff said three State Department witnesses will appear in two hearings Wednesday and Friday: the USA ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor, career department official George Kent, and Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.
