impeachment witnesses

Kangaroo court now calls Captain Kangaroo

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Upon further reflection, perhaps it is only appropriate that Captain Kangaroo (John Bolton) be called before the kangaroo court that has taken over the “World’s Greatest Deliberative Body.” But that does not mean you should actually believe this supposed paraphrased “testimony” from Mr. Bolton. It would probably be wise at this moment to remember that kiss-and-tell books are notoriously unreliable. Not only is the author compromised by the money he got paid to tell the most sensational story he could think up, he is also compromised by the mere fact that he turned on his former boss in the first place. Add to that the fact that Mr. Bolton has been around Washington for a very long time.

In witness debate, growing GOP focus on Hunter Biden; some press for whistleblower

Byron York, Washington Examiner

There appear to be two lines of thinking among Republicans about which witness, if there were, say, only one, would be best for the Trump defense. Some GOP senators are leaning toward Hunter Biden, while some in the House who have been deeply involved in the impeachment favor calling the whistleblower or the House managers' leader, Rep. Adam Schiff. House Republicans are House Republicans. They don't have a say in the Senate trial. And if most Senate Republicans get their way, there won't be any witnesses at all. But, at this point, there is no way to predict what will happen. Republican thinking on witnesses is changing and changing rapidly. It could well change again before the time comes to decide the witness question.

Trump’s Official Answer To Democrats’ Articles Of Impeachment

House Democrats’ impeachment articles are constitutionally invalid and the result of a lawless process devoid of even the most basic due process. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators to demand that the Senate expeditiously hear and reject the Democrats’ anti-constitutional attempt to impeach President Trump.

Is Hunter Biden Closer To Testifying In Senate Impeachment Trial?

Speaking on Sunday's political talk shows, Republican Senator Ted Cruz and Democrat Senator Sharrod Brown came to opposite conclusions about whether Hunter Biden would be called to testify in President Trump's Senate impeachment trial. Sen. Cruz said Democrats were terrified and would never let it happen, while Sen. Brown said he was OK with the idea as part of a witness reciprocity deal.

Four Impeachment Witnesses The Senate Must Call

The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators to demand that if there are witnesses called in the impeachment trial of President Trump, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Eric Ciaramella and Adam Schiff should be the first ones called.

Impeachment Trial: What Should Trump And McConnell Do?

The President's desire to have his day in court lines up with the thinking of many grassroots Trump supporters who want to see witnesses like Joe Biden, Biden’s son Hunter, Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff, and fake “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella all called and flayed alive on TV. But given the reluctance of Senate leaders to create the potential for the trial turning into a televised circus, it seems unlikely that will happen.
