So Cons are afraid to hear witnesses because it might make Trump look bad?

  • Best Answer

    If Dems wanted the witnesses in question so damn much, why didn't they call them during the House impeachment inquiry, when they had full control over proceedings? If Trump blocked subpoenas, then Dems would do SOP which would be take those subpoenas to court to get it's backing of them. If they would have done this STANDARD thing, they would have had their precious witnesses long before now! Or at least a legal obstruction of Congress charge had Trump blocked that one.

  • No, we don't support hearing from witnesses because that's not what's supposed to go on in the Senate. That was the House's job. It had secret hearings where they called witnesses and public hearings where they called witnesses. The only fact witness said that Trump wanted "no quid pro quo." If the House didn't make a strong care, that's on them. Of course, it's hard to make a strong case out of nothing. And I'm sure you don't want Hunter and Joe Biden testifying, do you? So willfully ignorant.

  • No I think that it would be funny watching Schiff and Nadler trot out a bunch of liberal college professors to give their opinion on what Trump has done like they did in the House.

    Then it would be even funnier when Trump's lawyers call the whistle blower, Joe Biden and Hunter Biden.

  • We were not afraid. Democrats refused to agree to a plan that they will allow them to call witnesses. In turn so would Trump's lawyer. But when they found out that Trump's lawyer were going to call Hunter and Joe Biden, they backed out of the plan. So tell me who were the ones that were afraid?

  • Yes, that's pretty much it.

    And also pretty much the reason the most secretive White House in history has been so secretive:

    -Hid the visitors' log.

    -Still keeps his taxes a secret. (The Supreme Court should finally give a verdict around June; Finally! Took it all the way.).

    -Hasn't given a press briefing in almost a year. 

    -The Mueller report also details systematic obstruction of justice. Findings on Russian interference were made DESPITE the White House.

  • How can you produce witnesses for something that never happened and has all been made up?

  • LOL.  The media has spent 4 years trying to make Trump look bad.  I think we're used to it.
