(UnitedVoice.com) – President Trump’s defense wrapped up on Tuesday in the impeachment trial. Now, senators are set to decide whether or not to call witnesses and one Democrat senator has a surprising request — he wants to hear from Hunter Biden.
When asked about the former vice president’s son, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the younger Biden is a “relevant witness.”
“I think so, I really do. I don’t have a problem there because this is why we are where we are. Now I think he can clear himself, what I know and what I’ve heard, but being afraid to put anyone that might have pertinent information is wrong, no matter if you’re a Democrat or a Republican.”
Manchin may be on his own with that opinion. Democratic leadership has not expressed similar thoughts. However, there have been some rumblings that Dems could be open to a witness swap: Hunter for the former national security adviser John Bolton.
We won’t know how it all plays out until the witness vote at the end of the week.
