Fox News:

The Ukraine whistleblower at the center of the House Democratic impeachment inquiry wants to testify to Congress in writing instead of appearing in person, according to a new report.

The Wall Street Journal reported that lawyers for the anonymous CIA officer have asked lawmakers if the whistleblower could submit testimony in writing, but Congress has not yet responded.

The request comes amid Democrats’ desire to protect the identity of the whistleblower, along with worries over safety and media scrutiny. President Trump and Republicans believe the president should have a right to confront his accuser, and have also cited new reports indicating the whistleblower could have partisan motives. His attorneys have acknowledged he is a registered Democrat who has worked with at least one 2020 candidate. On Thursday, reports surfaced that the candidate was Joe Biden.

Democrats formally launched an impeachment inquiry after the anonymous whistleblower filed a complaint about President Trump pressing Ukrainian officials this summer to investigate 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s business activities in Ukraine. More

You can’t cross-examine a written testimony. This whole charade is such a sham. This person must testify in person or else due process not followed.

Remember when people had a right to face their accusers? Remember when people were presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law? Remember when people respected the law and the US constitution? Liberalism is destroying America.
