GOP House Intelligence Committee member Elise Stefanik highlighted the issue of Hunter Biden’s work for Ukrainian energy firm Burisma during Tuesday’s public impeachment hearings. She said her constituents have many concerns about the fact Biden “sat on the board of a corrupt company like Burisma.”

Stefanik also pressed Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman on corruption in Ukraine by suggesting money laundering and tax evasion was a possibility for Burisma. She also called out chairman Adam Schiff for refusing to call Biden to testify.

“The Obama administration’s State Department was also concerned, and yet Adam Schiff refuses to allow this committee to call Hunter Biden despite our requests,” said the New York lawmaker. “Every witness who has testified and has been asked this has answered yes: do you agree that Hunter Biden on the board of Burisma has the potential for the appearance of conflict of interest?”
