Trump allies insist that Joe Biden and his son Hunter be summoned as witnesses of deposition in the hope of a disturbing & # 39; create a side issue & # 39;
- The congress wants to increase the pressure to defend the president during the accusation
- Allies propose to bring Joe and Hunter Biden as witnesses during the trial
- Senate republicans expressed their doubts about the strategy as a political tactic
- Some say it is & # 39; solemn and serious & # 39; constitutional process would turn into a & # 39; reality show & # 39;
Donald Trump's allies insisted that Joe Biden and his son Hunter be called as witnesses during the president's eviction process, a movement of which some have a distracting & # 39; side show & # 39; to mention.
Congress and loyalists want to increase the pressure to defend the president during the charge investigation – starting next week – by examining Hunter Biden's business transactions in Ukraine and China.
However, some Senate Republicans have expressed doubts about the strategy, fearing that it would seem like a political tactic and the & # 39; solemn and serious & # 39; constitutional process would turn into a & # 39; reality show & # 39 ;, the Washington Post reports.

Trump is accused of breaking the law by putting pressure on the Ukrainian leader to delve into harmful information about his political rival to stimulate his re-election.
But since Joe Biden was vice-president at the time, Mr. Trump's allies believe that bringing father and son as witnesses could be a way to explain that he asked President Volodymyr Zelensky for the couple in a phone call on July 25 to & # 39; investigate & # 39 ;.
The president claims that Mr. Biden has abused his power to press Ukraine to withdraw from a criminal investigation that his son might imply – and then to work for a Ukrainian energy company. Both have denied any misconduct.
Republican Sens. Rand Paul insisted that father and son be detained as witnesses at a campaign meeting with the president in Kentucky on Monday.
& # 39; I am telling this to my fellow colleagues & # 39; s in Congress, to every Republican in Washington: step on and summon Hunter Biden and summon the whistleblower! & # 39; He addressed the crowd.
But Senator John Cornyn (R-Tex.) Told the publication that bringing Hunter as a witness in the & # 39; a process & # 39;

He added that & # 39; accusation & # 39; is a very solemn and serious constitutional process, and I just think that whatever Parliament decides to vote on … that is what we should consider and not make this a reality show more than it is likely to be. & # 39;
Meanwhile, Trump supporters and loyalists have put pressure on the senate to defend the president.
& # 39; The Bidens should be named & # 39 ;, said former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon on Fox News on Sunday. & # 39; Joe Biden is a hand grenade and Hunter Biden is the pin. And when that pen is pulled, the shrapnel will blow through the entire democratic establishment. & # 39;
Because Joe Biden was vice-president at the time, Mr. Trump's allies think that father and son can be taken as witnesses to explain that he asked President Volodymyr Zelensky to look at the couple in a phone call on July 25
It comes after Trump has been fully attacked against his list of enemies – including the Democrats, the news media and the whistleblower – at a meeting in Monroe, Louisiana, while trying to strengthen the Republican candidate for the state.
Trump was accompanied on stage by two famous locals – Phil and Willie Robertson of the fame of & # 39; Duck Dynasty & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Democrats are becoming totalitarian & # 39 ;, Trump raged. & # 39; Suppression of dissidence, defamation of the innocent, elimination of the right process, staging of show trials and trying to overthrow American democracy to impose their socialist agenda. & # 39;
He called the Democrats accusation investigation a & # 39; scam & # 39; and scolded the whistleblower, saying that they were helped by & # 39; the sleaze behind & # 39; noting the pack of reporters that stood on the press risers.
& # 39; They have the guts out of our country, & # 39; he said about the Democrats investigating him.
And while deposition is central to whether the president put pressure on the Ukrainian leader – by holding military aid and a visit to the White House – to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden, the president also went after them.
On Hunter Biden, Trump cracked: & # 39; In Louisiana, you would not have hired him to be with your energy companies. They would have paid to damn him out. & # 39;
The president called a child into the crowd and asked about his age.
& # 39; He is eight, & # 39; said Trump. & # 39; He knows energy better than Joe Biden's son. & # 39;
Trump also claimed that Democrats & # 39; slow, Sleepy Biden tried to hide & # 39 ;.
