The House Republicans have a list of proposed witnesses to testify at the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry hearings that start next week. The “whistleblower” and Hunter Biden are among many on that list (as is a swipe at Adam Schiff). Law professor and ex-White House ethics attorney under George W. Bush, Richard Painter, thinks the House Republicans are on the “attack” unfairly:
An attack on the whistleblower.
And an attack on a private citizen who is the surviving son of a presidential candidate.

With the Dems in charge of the process, the GOP can only “attack” as much as Adam Schiff and others want them to, and it won’t be much. Nick Searcy and others don’t see it Painter’s way, however:
Why can't other private citizens get $50K a month from a foreign country for knowing nothing? https://t.co/FV2eCOnQ3s

And in this case, "nothing" has another name…..Joe Biden.

They don’t have a Democrat as a parent.

"Attack"? So now calling a witness, who did not have access to a phone call between heads of state on his own, to testify is an attack? Dude, get a hold of yourself. This is an idiotic argument. Also, Hunter Biden is not a 13 year old. https://t.co/2620TsHL22

I was today years old when I learned testifying is an attack and that exclaiming why the son of the Vice President is making money doing nothing. #DeepState
