On CNN on Thursday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer stated that if the Senate’s impeachment trial of President Trump has to go on for longer in order to get witnesses and documents, then “these senators can work a little longer” too.
“[I]f the trial has to go on a little bit longer, and it wouldn’t be weeks and weeks and weeks, to have a fair trial, to have witnesses and documents is of paramount importance, and these senators can work a little longer,” Schumer declared.
“They can work a bit longer hours. They can work on weekends,” he added. “This is one of the most serious responsibilities the Constitution has given us. And to not have a fair trial, to have no evidence of the people who actually saw what happened because the president is blocking it and McConnell is blocking it is wrong.”
The Democrats have no evidence, so their transparent ploy now is to claim falsely that GOP Senators and Trump are engaged in a coverup, blocking Democrats from presenting witnesses and documents.
