Chuck Schumer Calls GOP’s Hunter Biden Bluff, Claims it Would ‘Backfire’

Are you so sure about that, Chuck?

Even after the House of Representatives passed two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump in a maneuver that everyone knew was coming, what happens next is still up in the air.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is holding the articles hostage, it seems, hoping to use them as a bargaining chip with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.  The stakes are high, of course, with the Democrats hoping to call several high ranking White House officials as witnesses in the coming Senate trial.  McConnell has stated publicly that he’s looking to end the entire fiasco as quickly as possible, but not every Republican is on board.

In fact, quite a few members of the GOP have expressed their desire to see Hunter Biden called as an impeachment witness, in hopes of shedding some light on why President Trump was so concerned about corruption in Ukraine.

Schumer said, “I told McConnell today in our meeting if you have modifications if you think one of these witnesses is no good or you want to add another, you know, go right ahead. And there’s some argument that some may, well, if the Democrats have witnesses, then Republicans will ask for Hunter Biden. Make my day. Hunter Biden has nothing to do with the trial because he has no knowledge of what the president said of the charges.”

He added, “It’ll look like a circus, and they don’t want to do it. So this argument is a bogus argument to deter us from getting witnesses. I would bet my bottom dollar they’d never ask Hunter Biden to show up because it would backfire on them. It would make them look so unserious about this process that they would lose.”

Republicans in favor of calling Hunter Biden to the witness stand believe that exposing the corruption of his business dealings in Ukraine would vindicate President Trump’s attempts to investigate corruption in the tiny nation, which is a prerequisite for Ukraine to receive US military aid.
