Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said Sunday that Hunter Biden isn’t a legitimate witness for the Senate to call while weighing impeachment charges against President Donald Trump.

In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Nadler said the son of Trump’s political rival, Joe Biden, “has no knowledge of the accusations against the president.”

“Did the president…as the evidence shows that he did, betray his country by conspiring with a foreign country to try to rig the election?” he said. “Hunter Biden has nothing to say about that. Their asking for Hunter Biden is just more of a smear of Hunter Biden that the president's trying to get the Ukraine to do.”

He also charged that any GOP senators who don’t think there should be witnesses called at the impeachment trial in the upper chamber are part of a “coverup.”

“You know, the question of witnesses in any trial, in any trial, all relevant witnesses must be heard,” he said.

“And this whole controversy about whether there should be witnesses is really a question of does the Senate want to have a fair trial or … are they part of the coverup of the president? Any Republican senator who says there should be no witnesses or even that witnesses should be negotiated is part of the coverup.”
