This is like asking the department store Santa for a pony:

House Republicans asked for their own impeachment witnesses on Saturday, sending Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) a list that includes former vice president Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden and the anonymous whistleblower who filed the initial complaint against President Trump.

Hmmm...have you been a good little boy?

There might be an angle where Biden might be relevant, although I can't think of what it would be unless he's some kind of capo in the Ukrainian mob. The 911 caller, no relevance whatsoever.

Neither is relevant to the actual charges, they just want to divert, obviously.

Letter fired Intelligence Inspector General Micheal Atkinson sent to Senator Schumer

“People may spend their entire careers publicly encouraging whistleblowers to come forward and sound the alarm if they observe suspected abuse or wrongdoing in the federal government. Many of those same people proclaim publicly that they will stand by whistleblowers and protect them from reprisal or threat of reprisal when they do sound the alarm. Those repeated assurances of support for whistleblowers in ordinary matters are rendered meaningless if whistleblowers actually come forward in good faith with information concerning an extraordinary matter and are allowed to be vilified, threatened, publicly ridiculed, or -- perhaps even worse -- utterly abandoned by fair weather whistleblower champions. It is precisely when the stakes are highest, and the conditions searing, that public officials must well and faithfully discharge the duties of their offices.”

While GOP leaders remain mute and completely impotent...turns out their convictions and morality are all relative
