Senate Democrats call for witnesses in Trump impeachment trial

Democrats in the United States Senate have called for testimonials from witnesses in the impeachment trial of United States President Donald Trump. Senate Democrats have maintained that new revelations about the President deciding to withhold military aid from Ukraine have made it necessary to bring in witnesses in the trial.

HaHa! No. The Shampeachment has run it's course and bitching about how the Republicans run it now, after the Left has said over and over that yes this is a political process without the same expectations of due process.. well, the Left can just go fuck off now.

Democrats don't want to be treated the same way they treat Republicans...no surprise there

We'll have a “minority witness day” — time permitting. 🤡👌

The most "transparent" president in our history as he calls himself doesn't allow witnesses to testify after they've been subpoenaed by Congress in both the obstruction of justice and impeachment proceedings. You would think a "law and order" president as he calls himself would be more open to hearing witness testimony to establish the law and order he advocates. Isn't this what the Republicans were crying about during the House proceedings? Here's their chance to put up or shut up. I can't imagine having a trial of this magnitude without witnesses. And now we find out about an August meeting where it was purported that Pompeo and Bolton both begged him to release the aid. Witnesses please!

The senate witness rule comes from gop precedent set during clinton impeachment... Gop rules unanimous consent vote...... If u were on trial n knew you are innocent inspite of what defense says would u not want a witness to provide testimony that exonerated u without any reasonable doubt.... The gop can thumb up or down any wanted dem witness.. By fifty one vote majority... To provide a trial process minus any won't pass the public smell test .. Will look n appear to be a cover up engineered to protect another cover up... That reeks of corruption. Gone wild in the current..administration N that hurts not helps any president...thus never can erase far left contention conjured up that he isn't legitimate.... N that Mars his legacy... N it could cost senate control

Could be Sen dems r playing u for need for any witness..... They need none for article one impeachment... Just news clip of presidents July twelfth interview with g stephanoplis when he tells George.. Sure I would listen to an accept help from a foreign gov who had info on my oppent in election...... That clip shows willingness n state of mind... Then show his wh lawn chat requesting China and Ukraine to investigate bidens..... The house managers then rest the case for article one..? How does prez lawyer defend that... Short right to point n presidents own words...?? THE SENATE ONLY HAS TO CONVICT ON ONE Article...... I doubt they will convict but that is prima facia on point n compelling... To refute those to clips u would have to call the president to explain first one and the second one...n first one is no slip of the tongue nor second one...... He is in peril n it is no sham

Imagine not actually wanting to know what happened here. Imagine just being okay that Trump tried to get a foreign power involved in our elections and spreading Russian propaganda. Real Americans want to know the truth. Republicans have shown they’re nothing more then a cancer on the US

Anthony...they r afraid to call any witness... Afraid to probe for any truths or to clear presidents name through a witness... They stopped working per their oath as Co equal branch n just trashed their constitutional duties n oaths. Y they have done so is absolutely frightening for the republic...... It's one massive power grab to seal some weird deal in breech of the constitution... N closer toward autocratic one party rule... Dangerous to the republic
