FAST FIVE: Senate Republicans To 'Weaponize' Impeachment Witnesses If Moderate Colleagues Side With Dems
Senate Republicans To 'Weaponize' Impeachment Witnesses If Moderate Colleagues Side With Dems Trump supporting Senate Republicans have warned their moderate GOP colleagues that if they side with the Democrats to force witnesses in the upcoming impeachment trial, they're going to flip the script and weaponize the process to call controversial witnesses such as Hunter Biden and Alexandra Chalupa – people central to the core claims behind the impeachment, yet were ignored like the plague by House Democrats during their investigations.
“If you vote against Hunter Biden, you're voting to lose your election, basically.
John Kennedy says he expects that if moderate GOP join with Democrats to call their preferred witnesses, it's only fair that Trump's team can call theirs.
“I feel pretty confident, though I don't know it for a fact, that the defense team is going to want to call its witnesses, including but not limited to the Bidens, [and] as a fact witness the whistleblower.” Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) declined to weigh in on Thursday about if he would be willing to engage in a trade where Democrats could call Bolton in exchange for Republicans calling Hunter Biden, who has emerged as a prime fixation for Trump and his allies over his work on the board of a Ukrainian energy company. “I'm not going to negotiate out here,” he told reporters.
He can bring Hunter Biden.” Hannity told Cruz he “loved your proposal” and that he hopes the Democrats agree so that Republicans can call the Bidens, whistleblower Eric Ciaramella and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), whose staff met with the whistleblower and steered him to Democratic operative attorney Mark Zaid – who loves going to Disneyland alone.
