On the very day that Republican Senators are telling us they don’t want to listen to from witnesses, Donald Trump’s former Nationwide Safety Advisor John Bolton drops one other bombshell in his guide: Not solely did Trump strain him to get Ukraine to assist him cheat in 2020, however he did it in entrance of witnesses.
This occurred greater than two months earlier than Trump pressured the Ukrainian President to announce an investigation into Mr. Trump’s perceived political rival for 2020, former Vice President Joe Biden, the New York Times studies.
“Mr. Trump gave the instruction, Mr. Bolton wrote, throughout an Oval Workplace dialog in early Might that included the appearing White Home chief of workers, Mick Mulvaney, the president’s private lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani and the White Home counsel, Pat A. Cipollone, who’s now main the president’s impeachment protection.”
It is a bombshell as a result of there are, as soon as once more, witnesses to Trump doing what he accused of doing. And these witnesses are Republicans.
That is simply extra proof of why witnesses could be useful in an actual trial, and why what the Senate Republicans are doing will not be an actual trial.
Thoughts you, light reader, these persons are all Republicans. So Republicans are obstructing the general public from listening to from different Republicans as witnesses in a trial in opposition to a Republican for doing what this Republican, and plenty of others, accuse that Republican of doing.
The Senate trial is a sham, and there will probably be a reckoning someday.
