House Republicans Will Call Hunter Biden to Testify Publicly as Their Top Impeachment Witness: Report

House Republicans Will Call Hunter Biden to Testify Publicly as Their Top Impeachment Witness: ReportHouse Republicans intend to call Hunter Biden as their top witness in the impeachment inquiry, according to a list of witnesses obtained by Fox News on Saturday, just days before public impeachment hearings will commence.Biden, whose time on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma has become a central issue in the impeachment inquiry, denied that his business dealings in Ukraine and his father’s position as vice president represented a conflict of interest during an interview last month, but called the decision to join Burisma “poor judgement on my part.”In October, a U.S. State Department official told impeachment investigators that he worried Ukrainian officials would use Hunter Biden’s position at the company to influence the vice president, and conveyed his opinion to Joe Biden’s office, only for a staffer to tell him that the vice president didn’t have the “bandwidth” to address the issue.Earlier this week, Republican senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson asked the State Department for documents pertaining to Burisma, after email records showed that Biden and business partner Devon Archer scheduled meetings with senior State Department officials in 2015 and 2016.Republicans also plan on calling on Archer to testify, as well as the anonymous whistleblower who first raised concerns over the July call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.“Because President Trump should be afforded an opportunity to confront his accusers, the anonymous whistleblower should testify,” House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R., Calif.) wrote in a letter to Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff on Saturday.“Given the multiple discrepancies between the whistleblower’s complaint and the closed-door testimony of the witnesses, it is imperative that the American people hear definitively how the whistleblower developed his or her information, and who else the whistleblower may have fed the information he or she gathered and how that treatment of classified information may have led to the false narrative being perpetrated by the Democrats during this process.”On October 2, the New York Times reported that the whistleblower communicated with  Schiff’s office before filing a formal complaint.It is unclear whether Schiff will allow Republicans to call Biden and other witnesses, as current House rules on the inquiry allow Republicans to only call witnesses who are “authorized” by Schiff.Nunes, in his letter, said that Republicans expect Schiff “to call each of the witnesses listed above to ensure that the Democrats’ ‘impeachment inquiry’ treats the President with fairness, as promised by Speaker Pelosi.”

Chinese pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong KongAt least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing’s one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing’s growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as “one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag” on their official Weibo social media accounts.

Every Dem on Debate Stage Endorses Publicly Funded Health Care for Illegal Immigrants

Every Dem on Debate Stage Endorses Publicly Funded Health Care for Illegal ImmigrantsEvery candidate on stage during the second Democratic primary debate on Thursday night endorsed government funded healthcare for illegal immigrants.“A lot of you have been talking about government health care plans you proposed in one form or another. This is a show of hands question and hold them up so people can see. Raise your hand if your government plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants,” moderator Savannah Guthrie asked the ten candidates, all of whom raised their hands.> "Raise your hand if your government plan would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants" DemDebate2 pic.twitter.com/d3S5uZ43uw> > — NBC News (@NBCNews) June 28, 2019Vice President Joe Biden was then asked how he has evolved on the issue since he served with President Obama, who intentionally chose to exclude illegal immigrants from the Affordable Care Act.“You cannot let people who are sick, no matter where they come from, no matter what their status, go uncovered,” Biden said, when asked to explain the change in philosophy. “You can’t do that. It’s just going to be taken care of, period. You have to. It’s the humane thing to do.”Southbend, Ind. mayor Pete Buttigieg cast his support for the proposal in fiscal terms, suggesting that it would ultimately prove cheaper to insure the millions of people in the country illegally rather than allow them to continue to rely on emergency services.“This is not about a handout,” he said of providing illegal immigrants with publicly funded health care. “This is an insurance program. And we do ourselves no favors by having 11 million undocumented people in our country be unable to access health care. But, of course, the real problem is we shouldn’t have 11 million undocumented people with no pathway to citizenship.”President Trump responded to the Democrats' unanimous support for insuring illegal immigrants by preemptively declaring victory in the general election.> All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare. How about taking care of American Citizens first!? That’s the end of that race!> > — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 28, 2019
