Nadler: Hunter Biden Must Not Be Called

hunter-bidenI have been writing on the obvious relevance of Hunter Biden  as a defense witness and the equally obvious hypocrisy of some Democrats in demanding their own witnesses while refusing to consider key White House witnesses.  Now. House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., has suggested that, if a trade is needed to secure House witnesses, the managers will not agree to any witnesses if Hunter Biden is part of the deal.   If true, is the House prepared to give up on proving its case to protect the Bidens from the ignoble moment of answering questions about the Ukraine contract?  That is a considerable price to pay to protect Joe Biden.  It is also another reason why the decision to rush the impeachment vote was such a historic blunder by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. If they had waited a couple months as I called for in my testimony, they could have called these witnesses and not handed over control to the Senate. Instead, they impeached by Christmas and then waited a month.

Nadler insisted on Face the Nation that all “relevant witnesses must be heard” — meaning their witnesses.  Yet, if allowing witnesses meant Hunter Biden being called, he suggested that they would reject any deal — and any witnesses.   He dismissed any negotiation as a cover up:  “Any Republican senator who says there should be no witnesses, or even that witnesses should be negotiated, is part of the cover-up.”

As I previously noted, under Federal Rule of Evidence 401, courts will often review possible testimony under the standard of whether “it has a tendency to make a fact more or less probable than it would be without the evidence.”  Even before the adoption of the Bill of Rights, Congress enacted a statute reaffirming the right of the “defense to make any proof that he can produce by lawful witnesses” in cases of treason and capitol cases.  This right to present a defense has been repeatedly reaffirmed by the Supreme Court including in the 1967 opinion in Washington v. Texas, where the Court ruled that “the right to offer the testimony of witnesses and to compel their attendance, if necessary, is in plain terms the right to present the defense, the right to present the defendant’s version of the facts  . . . Just as an accused has the right to confront the prosecution’s witnesses for the purpose of challenging their testimony, he has the right to present his own witnesses to establish a defense.”

Of course, if Biden is called, the House managers would be allowed to cross examine as well as argue their claim of a cover up.

Nadler suggested that Chief Justice John Roberts should make the decision on relevance.  He may want to be careful on such an option.  Roberts might  rule that Biden is a relevant defense witness or, alternatively, he could reaffirm that this is a matter properly left to the Senate on who should be called.

  1. I say that the Bidens are not relevant witnesses.

    First, let us assume that Joe and Hunter Biden actually committed some crimes in the Burisma business. Even if they did that, it would have no bearing on the question of whether Trump committed a “high crime” or “misdemeanor” by attempting to extort Zelensky/Ukraine to force Ukraine to publicly announce that Ukraine will investigate them by withholding Congress’s approved military aid for Ukraine. In short, Hunter Biden’s (assumed) Burisma crimes cannot exonerate Trump of guilt for his extortion attempt.

    1. Just like a policeman may make a driving violation while chasing a criminal so may the current administration make what appears to be a violation when trying the rein in corruption of the previous admin. You are wrong it’s completely relevant.

    2. The executive branch, which has sole responsibility for foreign policy, has every right to vet aid recipients. Just because the corrupt state Dept declared Ukraine not corrupt and thus eligible for foreign aid do you think Trump may have his own questions and not trust inept state Dept employees after all he’s witnessed while in office? Don’t you think the state Dept approval of the aid was actually a rubber stamp? Do you think they investigated Burisma and cleared govt officials both there and in the US of any corruption? No, most likely it was approved as it crossed some bureaucrat’s desk. The GAO’s opinion is of a rule violation not some criminal act that anyone could be prosecuted for. If the dims wanted to make something of withholding aid they should’ve sued and taken it through the courts.

    3. You are so very, very wrong rdkay. Hunter Biden WILL be called, or there will be NO witnesses called. End of story. When the Bidens perjur themselves under oath to the Senate, it will be a glorious day in America.

    4. RDKAY…there was no extortion…no high crimes and misdemeanor. No Quid Pro Quo. Only Uncle Creepy Sleepy Joe committed Quid Pro Quo… His son admitted he had no business being on the board of Burisma. Did you even see the interview?? ZERO experience Hunter admitted on a television interview that he had NO business having THAT job, and the ONLY reason he had it was because his name was BIDEN! Or, did you miss that interview on national television??? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFlZPnS0gKc The aid from Trump was released without Ukraine even knowing that it was withheld and they even said so themselves, they had no idea. It’s all there in interviews on the REAL news outlets, not fake MSM. Learn something from REAL news. Fake news will never tell you the truth.

    5. First let us assume the treaty President Clinton signed with Ukraine is still in effect and President Trump had the right to ask for Ukraine’s co-operation,
      Also assume the guilty are trying to muddy the water to cover their tracks.
      Also assume the investigation was already on going.
      Also the former Ukrainian president was suspected to be involved and President Trump couldn’t ask him for help investigating himself.

      When the new president was elected on a law and order platform it was time to ask for help with the investigations.

      Understand the difference between asking an ally to abide by a treaty and extortion is in the eyes the beholder.

  2. The Socialist Regressives cannot hide facts and truth by blaming thier own right hand for what their own left hand did while they were looking in a third direction while wearing gloves. RINO DINO DNC they are all socialist extremists. Put another way National Socialists, International Socialists or Regressive Liberal Sociaists they are all buzzards of the same feather.

    Which reminds me we should nick name Mosquitos which truly depicts what they are and because the most dangerous animal in existence to human life is, in fact, the disease carrying mosquito.

    Think of your vote as a needful combination of any 100% Deet.

  3. Joe Biden: a man who is in full panic mode and is desperate to control the narrative.

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry/biden-campaign-warns-against-media-use-trump-disinformation-during-impeachment-n1118681

    In its first forceful pushback since impeachment proceedings began, the Biden campaign is demanding that “any media organization referencing, reporting on, or repeating these claims” from Trump and his allies “must state clearly and unambiguously that they have been discredited and debunked by authoritative sources.

    Discredited and debunked are terms applied to Biden’s political career and Hunter’s innocence…and Democrats, and the news media and…..

    LOL

  4. Why stop at calling Hunter? Call his daddy too. Heck, call the whole darn family — brother, wife, daughter. I think the granddaughter was on the flight to China; she might have heard her dad and gramps talking about Ukraine. Add her name to the list.

    Every time Nadler or Schiff says a witness is off limits, add more witnesses to the defense list. This is no time for cowardice.

      1. Hunter Biden’s daughters with his first wife are legal adults.

        As for Hunter’s infant child whom he allegedly couldn’t even identify in a line-up, obviously I wasn’t suggesting that child as a witness.

      2. Bullying a child? A 49 year old man is now a child? I’d say you’re projecting the Dims treatment of Barron onto Hunter. Now THAT is a bullied child.

  5. Protecting Biden from testifying is ALSO protecting Obama. Remember VP Biden and his son did nothing that Obama WH didn’t know about.

  6. A Senate investigation after this so called impeachment trial is over is needed. We could learn not what the President did, but what the. Bidens did.

    1. This press release answers some of your questions:

      QUOTE
      Given how radioactive the Burisma case has become in Washington, the government is not eager to pursue it in the midst of the U.S. presidential race.
      One of the troubling questions at the center of the impeachment inquiry, at least for Republicans, has been the work that Hunter Biden did for Burisma, one of Ukraine’s largest gas companies, while his father was serving as Vice President. But the intensity of interest in Washington is only making it more difficult to resolve the mystery. To this day, Burisma’s connection to Hunter Biden has made it much harder for Ukrainian authorities to investigate the company for corruption, current and former officials in Ukraine tell TIME. In that sense, Burisma is still getting its money’s worth for the reported $50,000 per month it paid the younger Biden to sit on its board from 2014 until earlier this year. Ukraine’s government insists that it has no evidence of wrongdoing by Hunter Biden or his father. But Burisma, they say, is a different story. Since taking office in May, the government has sought to explore past claims of corruption against Burisma and its owners. Yet, as an unintended consequence of the impeachment inquiry, Ukraine has felt the need to treat the company with kid gloves. “It’s too sensitive a topic,” says an official in Kyiv, who would only discuss the company’s case on condition of anonymity. “I think that we need to investigate Burisma. Not for Trump. And not against Biden. We need to do that because this is just a case of corruption,” says the official, who is familiar with the thinking of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. But the impeachment inquiry has “changed the context” around alleged corruption at Burisma, adds the official. “And this is bad.”
      The case of Burisma cuts to the heart of the Republican defense of Trump. The U.S President and his allies have insisted that the Bidens acted corruptly to shield the company from prosecution in Ukraine. The former Vice President, his son and their supporters have strenuously denied these allegations, and there is no evidence that Joe Biden’s decisions were ever influenced by his son’s involvement with Burisma. But the treatment of that company in Ukraine suggests that the role of Hunter Biden continues to affect the handling the company’s case, prompting the new government of President Zelensky to weigh its approach to fighting graft with particular care, especially when it comes to the country’s notoriously corrupt gas sector.
      “We don’t know how major players in the United States would turn any statement” on the issue of corruption, says Bohdan Yaremenko, a senior lawmaker in the ruling party of President Zelensky. “If we would try to make an emphasis on this issue right now, we would sound like we are trying to contradict President Trump and Republicans.” During a press conference in Kyiv on Wednesday, Prosecutor General Ruslan Riaboshapka told reporters that there are more than a dozen criminal cases in Ukraine that involve the company or his owner. They will all be reviewed in due course, he added. Ignoring them is not much of an option for Ukraine. “We cannot not investigate it just because it will benefit Trump or hurt Biden,” says the official, who believes, “It’s a case of corruption.” But given how radioactive the Burisma case has become in Washington, the government is not eager to pursue it in the midst of the U.S. presidential race. “We can do it after the elections,” the official tells TIME.

      Read more on UNIAN: https://www.unian.info/politics/10763873-ukraine-wants-to-probe-burisma-but-it-s-too-sensitive-media.html

      Because of the events in the US the Ukrainian PG has limited the investigation to a period prior to 2014 (when Biden joined the board) and after April 2019 (when Biden left the board). So Biden IS doing exactly what President Trump said he was doing, protecting Burisma from investigation.

  7. It is now obvious what this farce (I would say what it REALLY is but it would put my comment in moderation.) The sole goal of the Democrats is to protect Joe Biden. They do not want him investigated, period. (However, Lindsay Graham has indicated that there will be a Senate investigation after the removal trial has concluded.) Furthermore, there may be other Democrats implicated. Rudy Giuliani says he has evidence of massive corruption in Ukraine involving numerous Democrats. Nadler, Schiff, Pelosi and the rest of their crowd are conspiracists.

    1. im not so sure about that. the whole farce, from the beginning, ran a signficant chance of throwing Biden under the bus. initially i believe the “pantsuit mafia” in the House had decided to shiv him in order to advantage Warren. oh, CNN’s clearly backing Warren too. even though she’s a nut!

      right now he has an advantage because he’s not busy in the Senate like his rivals. that may evaporate.

  8. Trump should paraphrase Winston Churchill: “Yes, I am impeached for life. But a month from now I will still be president and you will still be a failed speaker and exactly what Samantha B called my daughter.”

  9. The Democrats are criminals who beget criminals who then pummel police only to have Democrats accuse police of being against the people

    Drop Hunter Biden on a quiet intersection in Baltimore after midnight in Democrat crime free, gun free zone and watch what happens

  10. We’ve long ago entered the realm of “mental crimes” for lawful acts, so how can anyone pretend Hunter Biden is NOT relevant. Trump didn’t invent or plant the suggestion of HB’s corruption. It was publicly speculated in the press for weeks before the phone call or the freeze. Don’t you think the press was secretly investigating him? That’s OK for the free press, but when Trump publicly raises the same issue, it’s treason. Biden’s testimony will spotlight whether Trump’s belief was reasonable. The trial doesn’t need to prove his corruption. Trump is covered if there is a reasonable suspicion of corruption, that’s all.

    1. Michael, the press has investigated the VP Biden charges around the Ukraine. The WSJ, Bloomberg News, the WaPo, and NYts have all done investigative reporting on it and found he was implementing SD policy – SD witnesses, including GOP appointees testified to the same under oath recently – as well as that of our allies the EU and IMF. That policy was to remove a do nothing and corrupt prosecutor who had already damaged a case in the UK by his inaction.

      But even if he wasn’t you don’t want future presidents weaponizing their power to try and damage political rivals, and especially through foreign governments. This is not a difficult concept.

      1. So Hunter got all that money on his merits, and it just happened to coincide with Joe’s involvement with Ukraine? That is what you believe?
        Please provide a couple of links showing that this has been investigated and no problems found.

        My view – Biden is obviously corrupt. So are you saying that no political rival can ever call for investigation (note, not persecution) of a clearly corrupt politician?

      2. The media did an investigation. Seriously, that’s your argument? The same media who insisted that there was Russia collusion and the the FBI FISA warrants were well supported? The same media who wrote that the impeachment effort has begun, 20 minutes after the inauguration? You’re beyond parody.

      3. investigated the VP Biden charges around the Ukraine.? And by extension of the DNC, investigated by these sterling bastions of a free press, the Bloomberg News, the WaPo, and NYTs.
        You must be kidding? These news outlets who U say investigated the VP Biden how? Through a straw?

  11. While I disagree with this and want to see relevant witnesses, there is logic in this. Why drag the Bidens though the mud if the Republicans will vote to acquit no matter what the evidence?

    1. Ah, to expose the corruption Trump was asking to be investigated… dems chose to go after him for doing his job, now he must prove he had a valid reason- They deserve what is coming and then some

      1. yes to prove the falsity of the basic slander against Trump that it was corrupt to delay aid or simply to ask contemporaneously for an investigation into biden corruption.

    2. Why drag the Bidens though the mud if the Republicans will vote to acquit no matter what the evidence?

      Hmm, logic? Let’s go with the logic of impeaching the president when it was always going to end in an acquittal. Logically, it was never about impeachment. Logically, it was always about influencing the 2020 election. Logically, if you’re going to alleged the president used a QPQ involving Ukraine and the Biden’s, then the Bidens and Ukraine are central to both the prosecution and defense. Logically, this was never going to end well for Joe Biden. The Democrats had exhausted efforts to impeach this president and this meant Joe had to be sacrificed for the party.

      The Democrat party has walked off the cliff as a rational political option for this country. It will not matter who the Democrats nominate. They will be destroyed in the debates; Trump and the Republicans will win in historic numbers.

      1. Logically, this was never going to end well for Joe Biden.
        ________________________________________________

        It could have ended well if the whistle blower kept his mouth shut, but once again the intelligence community comes to the rescue of Mr trump.

    1. he can and he WILL. then it’s game set and match Republicans.

      and then the AG and whatisname with the moustache can finally do their job and begin the arrests of the saboteurs and plotters

  12. There is no more “relevant” witness than Hunter Biden and anyone who is being honest knows this. President Trump asked the Ukrainian President to look into alleged corruption involving Hunter Biden. Was that a valid question or not? I think Americans need to know this.

    1. Jackson, if you are accused of robbing a bank and your lawyer tries to bring a witness to validate that you were in debt to landmarks, that would information ruled irrelevant to your guilt or innocence.

      You might also note that the administration sought a public announcement from the Ukraine on opening an investigation, a clear indicator that it cared nothing about Ukrainian corruption and everything about the 2020 election. If Trump harbored legitimate concerns about UkrainiAn corruption, he should have referred it the DOJ, which by the way, had not opened an investigation into these suspicions.

          1. Not only was Anon’s inuendo untrue but now he is using an interview that never occurred to prove his pint. This guy’s attempts to spin the story is incredible.

      1. this is a fair attempt at a thoughtful response, but misses the mark by a wide margin. Your bank analogy is misplaced. It is not the same to say being in debt is not admissible motive for a robbery (although it clearly is), and that the presence of corruption is a valid motive for asking for an investigation. In fact, the presence of corruption is an issue the United States requires its diplomats to take account of. More importantly, if there be corruption (as we can all see), the request for an investigation was well founded, and cannot be an abuse of power. No, the US DOJ cannot investigate corruption in the Ukraine, at lest not without the cooperation of the Ukraine.

        As to your second point about a public announcement, your point is equally unpersuasive. Causing a suspect and corrupt country to be on the record about its intentions to remedy corruption is the means by which you hold them to those commitments.

        Amazingly, what you are uncurious about is why a sitting US vice president took the unprecedented step of becoming involved with the firing of a single prosecutor. I can think of zero other examples of a US government official meddling in the low-level internals of a foreign country, right down to the individual personal level of firing one man. yes, I’m sure you’ll argue that various European allies also had a personal grudge with one insignificant man in the Ukraine. Amazing the influence of a US Vice President ready to withhold the financial assistance of the United States.

        Hunter Biden was hired to provide access to his father and the influence of the United States. Joe Biden sold that influence. That is why Nadler would sooner accept zero witnesses than to have Hunter testify.

        1. Correcttherecord, Motive in a bank robbery might be relevant at sentencing, but not at guilt of innocence.

          We have had FBI personnel in the Ukraine helping them deal with the legendary corruption and as an ally our DOJ can make referrals for help on matters of concern. In fact, a sitting GOP congressman from Penn was one there for that purpose in 2015 and has stated thAt VP Biden’s behavior was US policy and the prosecutor hr helped remove was a corrupt obstacle to progress.Several SD witnesses in the recent House hearings testified to the same fact. I refer you to investigative reporting on this matter by the WSJ, WAPO, Bloomberg Nes, and the NYTs which has so far confirmed the legitimacy of VP Biden’s work there.

          Perhaps it is you who should be more curious about his actions in the Ukraine.

  13. Hunter Biden is only relevant because the Republicans want to say don’t look at Trump look at Hunter Biden. Hunter Biden isn’t a member of the Trump Administration nor was he involved in policy making. He may, in fact, be a nasty philander but he’s irrelevant.

    Trump won’t let any of the people who were actually involved in the actions related to the charges or the policy making discussions. Those people are relevant but their testimony is being obstructed.

    Let’s have Ivanka, Jared and the boys testify. They certainly have more relevance to what their father and father in law did than Hunter Biden.

    1. Underlying claim by Democrats: Trump targetted candidate Biden over corruption in Ukraine and wanted Hunter investigated for corruption.

      That is the twisted claim by Democrats and doesn’t meet what is known and the transcript. If that is the claim then Hunter is absolutely a primary witness.

      1. Nobody seems to be talking about bringing in the so called “whistle blower,” as a witness. After all, this entire matter started with that person. And, Adam Schiff had meetings with the whistleblower prior to the complaint being filed. The nexus of the impeachment must not be cast aside if we are to get to the whole truth.

        1. I agree. The Whislteblower is the start of this contrived incident though the Democrats have been trying to impeach Trump from the day he got into office. The Damage the Democrats are doing to our republic is heinous.

        2. Gerald, the 1st person witnesses to the phone call the WB reported on have all corroborated his account under oath, as did the transcript. You’d be wasting a witness.

          1. The only fact witness called by the House stated NO quid pro quo.

            Anon, you don’t have to lie about the facts unless you wish to prove something that never happened.

            1. Requesting the help of a foreign government on a US election is an impeachable offense with or eithout a QPQ.

              That being said, most of the fact witnesses described administration actions based on withholding aid and acts of public support in return for a public announcement of an investigation of the Presidents chief obstacle to his reelection.

              1. The QPQ was Biden. Trump followed the directive of dealing with corruption. Biden didn’t even try to maintain a separation between his government work and the payments to his son for influence peddling.

            1. Soros funds hundreds if not thousands of NGOs, and advocacy groups, like BLM, and other skanky outfits. the trickle down however is very little and the flunkies do it mostly out of their own inner delusions of saintliness

              1. Soros seems to be behind too many things. To some extent, he must be a front man for other powerful interests that want to stay out of the limelight.

                1. he’s a billionaire with decades of experience destabilizing nations for fun and profit.
                  as small as albania and as big as the UK and yes Ukraine.
                  sometimes this has worked to the US strategic interest and more and more not so much…
                  and there are many like minded to him. that’s all

              2. Kurtz, why don’t you try to reply coherently and cut the BS and lame insults.It’s not like you don’t spend too much time here, saintly or otherwise. Why not do your best? Like most of the posters here you spend most of your time denouncing other posters.

                1. sorry to offend you, i didn’t realize that my insulting the paid trolls included you. i assumed that you were a person who simply differed in opinion, and was having fun writing about politics in your retirement! but if you’re scratching these comments out for pennies that’s too bad. i’ll exempt “by the book” from my earlier remarks, if so!

    2. If, indeed, there was corruption going on between Ukraine and the Biden’s, how is Hunter Biden not relevant? I’m not saying there was corruption — but we need to know the answer to that. If there was absolutely ZERO wrong-doing on the part of the Biden’s in terms of their Burisma dealings, than President Trump’s question to the Ukrainian President could be seen as trying to find trouble where there was none. However, if there were shenanigans going on, then President Trump’s question was totally justified. So, in light of this, Hunter Biden should actually be Witness #2 called right after Witness #1 — that being the so-called “Whistleblower”

    3. If he’s so irrelevant why all the fuss? five minutes of examination would clear any doubts about both father and son

  14. Hunter Biden is relevant to the charges against the President and even my dog Vladimir would know that. Nadler continues to embarrass himself while still nursing arguments that are equally irrelevant, and serve only to demonstrate his TDS

  15. On the contrary; Hunter Biden is the crux of the matter. The corrupt deals that put him in positions with the Ukraine and other national entities must be brought in to the light which one great jurist held to be the best antiseptic. Antiseptic is the needed treatment for this infection. As to Professor Turley’s qualifications, you reveal much about yourself when retreating to an ad hominum attack as an example of his “closet Trumpism”. Anyone who reads Professor Turley on a regular basis understands that if anything he leans the other way if only just a bit.

  16. Jerry, Adam, Nancy, and the Democrats already gave up their attempts of “proving its case” when they started the process and then voted for it. The Democrats had no case from the start, but just a desire to finally act on their smear machine of impeachment that they’ve been nurturing for 3 years. When they disallowed ALL Republican witnesses it was proof of their feeble case as well as their feeble minds. They are truly the absolute corrupt!

  17. Hunter Biden is irrelevant to the charges against the President and even my cousin Vinny would know that. JT continues to embarrass himself while still nursing arguments that are equally irrelevant,and serve only to demonstrate his closet Trumpism.

    1. “Huonnter Biden is irrelevant to the charges against the President and even my cousin Vinny would know that. ”

      Anon of course your cousin Vinny would think he knew that, after all he comes from the same gene pool as you.

      The President had a right to do what he did and Congress had the right to object. Impeachment is one of the ways Democrats have tantrums.. The basic claim by the Democrats was that the President was targetting another candidate running for office. They say he targetted that candidate by asking for his son to be investigated (which the President didn’t do). Everyone finds something suspicious about the amount of money Hunter received from a corrupt Ukrainian company so there is merit to any claim that Hunter might have had some involvement in a quid pro quo. Therefore, he is without question one of the people needed to be called to resolve the issue.

      Adam Shift and the Whistleblower should be called as well so Hunter won’t be their only objection. Nothing Bolton says would be grounds for impeachment the way the Constitution intended and the President will not be convicted by the Senate so the Democrats have proven once again that they are irresponsible and dirty.

      The president will have a stain on his record, but he will also have a positive record of benefitting the nation and its people.

      Reached a breakthrough agreement with the E.U. to increase U.S. exports.
      Imposed tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum to protect our national security.
      Imposed tariffs on China in response to China’s forced technology transfer, intellectual property theft, and their chronically abusive trade practices.
      Net exports are on track to increase by $59 billion this year.

      We have begun BUILDING THE WALL. Republicans want STRONG BORDERS and NO CRIME. Democrats want OPEN BORDERS which equals MASSIVE CRIME.

      1. Dear Allan…

        You are 100% correct on the Trump Administration’s accomplishments

        What you have listed are the very things that the DemoKKKrats want STOPPED

        1. the key things they want are:

          1- to take control of the senate, too. then they can have their way with most anything
          2- retake presidency even though that’s super unlikely
          3- restock America with tons of foreigners who are 90% likely to vote Democrat if they can get the franchise and their kids maybe 75% likely too. Demographic warfare against the legacy population of America, flat out.

        1. Grains trending down again after getting caught up in emotion around potential trade deal. Traders and farmers realizing that, at best, they come out where they started pre tariff tax. Trumps 28 billy bribe circling the bowl.
