Schumer And Schiff Are Suddenly Refusing An Offer To Bring In Witnesses
The Impeachment Managers and GOP Dems have been all about getting John Bolton to be heard at the trial. Dems seem to need more evidence and witnesses because of their flimsy case. But it appears at the mere idea of a witness trade they suddenly were not interested. Wait so do they want witnesses or not? I could have sworn Pelosi held the articles of impeachment hostage for over a month just for a chance at getting witnesses...
Some Senators proposed a witness trade of John Bolton for Hunter Biden. But for some reason, Schumer and Schiff both were not interested. It's funny how things have to be on their terms or not at all.
"That's off the table," Schumer said flatly in response to a question posed by Blaze Media. "First of all, the Republicans have the right to bring in any witness they want. They haven't wanted to and that trade is not on the table."
Schiff also scoffed at the idea.
"Calling in Biden at this stage of the process would be "an illegitimate abuse of the trial."Like Schumer, Schiff also dismissed the idea of a Biden-Bolton witness compromise on Wednesday, telling reporters, "This isn't like some fantasy football trade."
"This isn't 'We'll offer you this if you'll give us that; we'll offer you a witness that is irrelevant in material, who has no relevant testimony, but a witness that will allow us to smear a presidential candidate if you want to get a legitimate witness,'" Schiff continued. "That's not a trade. Trials aren't trades for witnesses,"
What are they so afraid of here? I thought Dems said that Bolton was going to make their impeachment case for them? Or is it that they are afraid of bringing in Biden's only "surviving son?" Perhaps they are worried that Biden and his son are complicit in corruption in Ukraine. That could definitely hurt a frontrunning Dem's presidential campaign.
