US President Donald Trump Saturday called on Republican lawmakers to include House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, and his likely Democratic rival Joe Biden. Trump urged Ukraine to investigate Biden, his son Hunter, and US intelligence chief Michael Atkinson on a list of people submitted by Republican lawmakers to Adam Schiff asking for testimony as part of the impeachment investigation.

Earlier in the day, Republican congressmen asked Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, and leaked President Donald Trump’s call with his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, to testify in a parliamentary inquiry to isolate Trump as part of a list of witnesses to attend.

“We expect you to call each of the witnesses mentioned to confirm that the democratization of the Democrats is treated fairly as Nancy Pelosi promised”, House Representative Intelligence Committee member Devin Nanz wrote in a letter to committee chairman Adam Schiff, of fundamental justice and due process.

Observers are likely to refuse to attend many, if not all witnesses present on the list of Republicans.

Trump is facing a parliamentary inquiry initiated by the House of Representatives Democrats to isolate him, against the background of what they see as incitement by the US President to his Ukrainian counterpart to interfere in US domestic policy, by demanding an investigation into Biden, who also served as former Vice President in Barack Obama’s administration and his son Hunter, who ran an energy company in Ukraine, during a telephone conversation on July 25.

The start of the crisis dates back to September, when a CIA operative filed a complaint with CIA inspector general Michael Atkinson with information obtained from about six US officials who expressed concern that Trump was using his position to seek Ukraine’s intervention to favor re-election for new presidential term in 2020.
