Nunes said no hearings should be held until three questions are answered – “what is the full extent of the Democrats’ prior coordination with the whistleblower; what is the full extent of Ukraine’s election meddling against the Trump campaign; and, third, why did Burisma hire Hunter Biden, what did he do for them, and did his work affect the Obama administration?” Photo: Jim Lo Scalzo/Pool via REUTERS
