On November 6, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee led by Congressman Devin Nunes sent a letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff containing a list of witnesses they wanted to testify in the House Impeachment Inquiry: Devon Archer, Hunter Biden, Alexandra Chalupa, David Hale, Tim Morrison, Nehlie Ohr, Kurt Volker, the Intelligence Community whistleblower, and the whistleblower’s sources. And today, they sent Chairman Schiff another letter containing a list of subpoenas they want issued: subpoenas for closed-door testimony from the whistleblower and Hunter Biden, along with subpoenas for documents from the whistleblower, Rosemont Seneca Bihari LLC, and the Democratic National Committee.
Chairman Schiff has granted some of these requests, but he has denied many of them on the grounds that they’re not relevant. And since Republicans don’t have a majority in the House of Representatives, they don’t have power to call witnesses or issue subpoenas on their own. Republicans do have a majority in the Senate though, so my question is, have Senate Republicans called any of the witnesses or issued any of the subpoenas that Devin Nunes wanted? I imagine Nunes has allies in the Senate who would be willing to cooperate with him on this. Right now some relevant Senate committee can call the same witnesses and/or issue the same subpoenas that Devin Nunes is asking for.
