Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) backed House Intelligence Committee Chairman Schiff, saying there’s “no reason” to call Hunter Biden before the impeachment inquiry hearing committee.
Klobuchar appeared on Sunday evening’s CNN’s State of the Union and said that she feels there’s no need to hear from candidate Joe Biden’s son Hunter on his role in the alleged Ukraine scam.
House Republicans have repeatedly urged for the Bidens should come forward and testify for the sake of transparency.
GOP politicians have also repeatedly asked for the whistleblower to come forward or at least to see the whistleblower’s testimony which sparked the impeachment inquiry, but Klobuchar argued the committee has enough first-hand sources that would ensure enough solid evidence to make their case against President Trump.
According to Klobuchar, there is no need to reveal the whistleblower’s identity.
“I know they also wanted to try to get the whistleblower to testify, when, in fact, all sources tell us, that what the whistleblower was telling us, was all, in fact, second-hand information,” she said. “While they now have firsthand information of diplomats, military people, others that actually heard these actions occur where the president was pushing for Ukraine to start an investigation against his political opponents in exchange for military assistance.”
