WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri announced Saturday he had drafted motions to subpoena key witnesses, should the Senate decide to consider new witnesses and documents in the impeachment trial.

Hawley indicated he wanted Republican lawyers to cross-examine House Democratic impeachment manager Adam Schiff, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden and the so-called whistleblower, whose concerns about a telephone call between President Donald Trump and the new Ukrainian president set the impeachment effort in motion.

I have drafted motions to subpoena Adam Schiff, the “whistleblower,” Hunter Biden, and Joe Biden to testify. If the Senate calls witnesses, I will ask for votes on all these next week

On Saturday President Trump's lawyers spent two hours rebutting days of opening statements by the House managers. The president's defenders accused Democrats of pursuing impeachment in an effort to overturn the 2016 election. 

The defense team is planning another presentation for Monday.
