President Trump and some Republicans have expressed interest in Hunter Biden testifying as part of a likely Senate trial as the House gears up to vote on two articles of impeachment this week against President Trump: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Democrats say Trump abused his power by pressing Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, a 2020 Democratic front-runner, and Hunter Biden, who served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company.
Schumer said Monday that the four witnesses Democrats want testimony from are Mick Mulvaney, acting White House chief of staff, John Bolton, former national security adviser, Robert Blair, senior adviser to the acting White House chief of staff, and Michael Duffey, associate director for national security at the Office of Management and Budget.
