Senate to Debate Rules for Trump’s Trial


Recommended Posts

House managers call on White House counsel to disclose his knowledge of impeachment-related conduct.


Escalating a war of paperwork over their charges, the House managers insisted on Tuesday that Pat A. Cipollone, the White House counsel and his lead lawyer in the trial, disclose what he knows about the behavior underlying the impeachment charges.

 

“Evidence indicates that, at a minimum, you have detailed knowledge of the facts regarding the first article and played an instrumental role in the conduct charged in the second article,” the managers wrote. “The ethical rules generally preclude a lawyer from acting as an advocate at a trial in which he is likely also a necessary witness.”

Would not this apply to Schiff? He admitted that his staff had contact with the whistleblower.

 

Perhaps he should recuse himself.

A solid majority of Americans believe the impeachment trial should include new testimony from witnesses who did not appear during the House inquiry, according to a new poll.

 

The CNN poll found that 69% of Americans, including 48% of Republicans, say the trial should feature new witness testimony. The poll also concluded that 51% of Americans support the Senate voting to remove Trump from office, compared to 45% who oppose it.

Agreed. Let’s hear from the whistleblower.

Nadler: Let's have a fair trial. We should not debate bringing in witnesses.


It’s hard to imagine how embarrassed those two must be to admit the case made in the House was, if not flimsy, incomplete. 
 

Bring on the whistleblower.

Schiff must testify on his contact with the leaker!

You know nothing about the impeachment inquiry. If you didn't repeat FOX you have nothing to say.
