Appearing on CNN, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer pushed back against the notion that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden should testify.
Multiple Republicans have signaled their intent to call upon Hunter Biden to testify, including Rep. Matt Gaetz.
“It’s a little hard to believe that Burisma hired Hunter Biden to resolve their international disputes when he could not resolve his own disputes with Hertz rental car over leaving cocaine and a crack pipe in the car,” Gaetz said during a house hearing.
Schumer told “New Day” host John Berman:
“No one, not a single person I’ve heard, even those who want Hunter Biden, have even alleged that he has knowledge of the fact case the House is presenting. This shouldn’t be for Democrats to bring in their favorite conspiracy theories and for Republicans to bring in theirs…This is an august and solemn proceeding.”
