Impeachment Might Backfire if Trump Calls Bidens, Clinton, Top Democrats To Testify

In the rush to impeach President Trump for the phone call with Ukrainian President Voloymyr Zelensky, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Intelligence Committee chieftain Adam Schiff might have forgotten something.

Two witnesses Trump would likely call for testimony are former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, the two key figures in a major influence peddling scandal in Ukraine. Then again, if the House votes for impeachment because of “Russian collusion,” that too could backfire because Trump could then question myriad officials from the FBI, the Obama administration, and the Clinton campaign — perhaps Clinton herself.

The reason: Trump asked Zelensky to help expose that Biden scandal as well as the collusion hoax over which he was relentlessly attacked until Special Counsel Robert Mueller found nothing with which to accuse Trump of wrongdoing.

In other words, the Democrats might have miscalculated politically, and, in the end, exonerate Trump and convict the Bidens, Clinton, and others.

Long List of Witnesses
“I don’t think the Democrats have thought this through at all,” a Senate staff member told the Washington Times’s Stephen Dinan, because they are exposing multiple top Democrats to subpoenas to testify when the Senate tries the impeachment case.

For instance, Dinan noted, GOP Senator Lindsey Graham said the anonymous whistleblowers who say Trump committed an impeachable offense during the Zelensky call would be forced to testify publicly.

As well, he said, Schiff might also be a witness because he falsely said neither he nor his staff had contact with the now-famous CIA whistleblower before he wrote his nine-page hearsay account.

Then, of course, Trump could call the Biden boys.

“If Trump is impeached on the Ukrainian call, the Bidens would be fair game, particularly Hunter,” Turley told Dinan. “While I do not agree that the evidence supports the allegation against Biden in pushing the termination of the prosecution, there is little question that the Hunter Biden deal smacks of profiteering on his father’s position.”
