Trump threatens to have Schiff, Bidens, Pelosi testify in Senate trial as he dares House to impeach

 

 

Republicans hold the majority in the Senate and Trump allies hold chairmanships on key committees, with many of them signaling their interest in exploring issues that House Democrats glossed over during their hearings — such as the Bidens’ business dealings in Ukraine and alleged Ukraine interference in the 2016 presidential election.

But despite his threats, the president does not, alone, have the power to call witnesses to testify in those proceedings. In the Senate trial, three separate parties have input to how it will play out: Senate Republicans, Senate Democrats and the White House.

 

 

Elton thinks Trump will show up to testify at the Senate hearings?!?!!?!??!?!?!  hahaha3.gif

From the link I provided;

 

Critically, and contrary to common mythology and parlance, the chief justice is not the “judge” in an impeachment trial. The Senate itself is both judge and trier of fact, and the chief justice serves as its presiding officer. The rules thus require the chief justice to direct “all forms of the proceedings” (Rule 7) and, in so doing, “to make and issue all orders, mandates, writs, and precepts authorized by the rules” (Rule 5).

Importantly, the chief justice may rule on questions of evidence—including, but not limited to, questions of relevancy, materiality, and redundancy of evidence and incidental questions (Rule 7). But the chief justice does not have to play this role, and he is not the final word on matters when he does. Should he decide that he wants to rule on a particular question, his ruling stands as the judgment of the Senate (Rule 7) unless a senator seeks a vote on the question—“in which case it shall be submitted to the Senate for decision without debate.” Should the chief justice not want to rule on an evidentiary question, he can simply submit it to a vote in the first instance (Rule 7). Upon all these questions, the vote must be taken “in accordance with the Standing Rules of the Senate” (Rule 7).

An impeached president can be re-elected. You mean a president removed from office?

They elected him when they thought he was just a sleazy, obnoxious billionaire...I don't think you're correctly gauging the pulse of the silent majority.

I'm only speaking for myself, but I feel that impeachment is a certainty and acquittal in the senate is almost a certainty. Re-election under this scenario seems moderately likely.

Here fellas: a pertinent excerpt from the article.

Critically, and contrary to common mythology and parlance, the chief justice is not the “judge” in an impeachment trial. The Senate itself is both judge and trier of fact, and the chief justice serves as its presiding officer. The rules thus require the chief justice to direct “all forms of the proceedings” (Rule 7) and, in so doing, “to make and issue all orders, mandates, writs, and precepts authorized by the rules” (Rule 5).

Remains to be seen. House has not even introduced the articles.

But you're saying even if he's not removed, he still won't be re-elected in 2020?

There are no legitemate. articles.  They arent going to include anything new that we haven already seen from these bogus hearings.  They have nothing.  And even though they are grasping for straws because they have nothing, the house democrats dont care because they are still angry from 2016.
