— House Republicans on Saturday submitted their list of witnesses they'd like to testify as part of the chamber's impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump and Ukraine.

In a letter to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff on Saturday, Republicans listed the anonymous whistleblower, former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden, former US special envoy for Ukraine Kurt Volker, high-raking State Department official David Hale and Tim Morrison, the top Russia and Europe adviser on the National Security Council.

The list also includes Nellie Ohr, a former Fusion GPS contractor, and Alexandra Chalupa, a former Democratic National Committee staffer, signaling that the GOP still wants to focus unsubstantiated election-related claims to the 2016 presidential campaign.

Democrats must approve any requests submitted by Republicans and they are expected to reject the requests for Hunter Biden and the whistleblower to appear.
