Rubio supports subpoena of whistleblower if it’s deemed relevant


As the House Judiciary Committee, which is led by Democratic Chairman Adam Schiff, calls its first to witnesses to an open impeachment inquiry hearing later this week, House Republicans have stated that they will be subpoenaing the whistleblower and Hunter Biden to testify in front of the committee.

House Democrats have rejected the Republican witness list, which includes Hunter Biden, form Democratic National Committee consultant Alexandra Chalupa, Devon Archer, and the whistleblower.

Only a handful of Republicans, including Rep. Brian Mast, have openly expressed their support to subpoena the Bidens and the whistleblower.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R) says he supports subpoenaing the Bidens and the whistleblower but only if it was “relevant to the broader inquiry.”

The Floridian caught up to Rubio last week in Miami and asked him if he supported House Republicans’ call for the whistleblower to come forward.

“I’m not spending a lot of attention to it right now because that’s going to come over to Senate or it doesn’t, and if it does, we’ll have ample time to hear the evidence and then we’ll have time to make our decision,” said Rubio “ I’ll make my decision on what’s in the best interest of America, you know. This is not a criminal trial, it’s a removal trial of the president of the United States. That’s a really big deal.

Sen. Rubio asserted that the impeachment inquiry was “very traumatic for he country” and that while House Democrats are solely caught up with trying to oust President Trump, they are not doing the job they were elected to do.

Rubio rattled off a number of pressing issues, like funding the military,  that are being neglected by Democrats due to their impeachment inquiry

We are less than a year away from an election. My general view is, if you don’t like the president, vote against him in November. But, this is very traumatic for the country, but in the meantime,” added Rubio “I don’t know what the House is going to decide to do. Ultimately, we in the Senate don’t have any power to subpoena anyone for a trial but the president’s lawyers could. “
