WATCH: Don Jr. Wants the Bidens to Take Part in the Impeachment Trial

Donald Trump Jr. spoke to Fox News' Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures" about his father's ongoing impeachment trial in the Senate. The president's son said that he would like to see Republicans call upon Hunter Biden and Joe Biden as witnesses, saying the Republicans who are only interested in hearing from the Democrats' witnesses "don't deserve to be in office." 

"We've seen this has been a one-sided sham since moment number one," Donald Trump Jr. told Maria Bartiromo on Sunday. The president's son pointed to a Washington Post article that argued for impeaching the president, saying it was written "about 20 minutes after the inauguration."   

Bartiromo asked Don Jr. if he wanted to see new witnesses called forward during the Senate trial. 

"I definitely want to hear from the other side," he said. "I would like to hear from Hunter Biden. I'd like to hear from Joe Biden because, frankly, these are the reasons we're even having this conversation right now."

Democrats keep asserting that President Trump unjustifiably called upon Ukraine to investigate possible corruption involving former vice president Joe Biden and his son. But it's already apparent that such an investigation is needed. Perhaps Joe and Hunter Biden can explain how their family got rich in Ukraine while his father controlled the purse strings over there. Those two witnesses could completely shred the media's false narrative that President Trump was merely attempting to take out a political opponent instead of following signs that pointed to corruption. 

Unlike the Bidens, Trump Jr. pointed out that he and his family were doing international business long before their father entered politics. 

A motion to call new witnesses, however, is currently expected to be shelved until the end of the Senate impeachment trial. Sen. Lindsey Graham (D-SC) said on Sunday that he did not want to give legitimacy to the House impeachment articles by calling additional witnesses. But Graham also said if one new witness comes before the Senate, it's only fair that all the witnesses are brought in to answer questions.
