Sen. Hawley: House Has Made It Clear That We Need to Call Hunter Biden, Joe Biden As Witnesses

|

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Missouri) says much of House impeachment managers' case hinges on Hunter and Joe Biden.

>BRET BAIER, SPECIAL REPORT: Your thoughts on today's presentation by the prosecution and House managers?

SEN. JOSH HAWLEY (R-MO): I really thought they made a mistake in highlighting the role of Hunter Biden and Burisma. The House prosecutors spent a good amount of time this afternoon saying how there is absolutely no corruption involved between Hunter Biden and Burisma. That Joe Biden had no conflict of interest when he got the prosecutor with jurisdiction fired who was potentially looking into Hunter Biden and Burisma.

I think it was a very strange choice on their part but it really highlighted that so much of the House's case turns on Hunter Biden, Burisma and saying there is no corruption there. So here's my bottom line. If we call witnesses, I think the House has made it very clear that we're going to have to call Hunter Biden, probably Joe Biden.

BAIER: So what's your guess? Do you think that you'll lose 4 Republicans? Are you voting for witnesses?

HAWLEY: I don't think at this point there is any need to go beyond the evidentiary record that the House has amassed. We admitted that into evidence, that includes the witness statements, it's all in evidence. But if the Senate does elect to call witnesses and subpoena documents, I'm assembling my own list and I think we absolutely need to subpoena and ask for Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, the whistleblower, and maybe Adam Schiff.
