Democrats are staging a power play to hijack a Senate impeachment trial.
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer believe this is their best chance to remove Donald Trump from office.
But Ted Cruz hit Democrats with an impeachment reality check that is really bad news.
Nancy Pelosi refused to send articles of impeachment to the Senate to try and bully Republicans into letting Democrats run the impeachment trial.
Senate Democrats are demanding Republicans agree to testimony from witnesses such as former national security advisor John Bolton and acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney even though House Democrats refused to push for their testimony.
Republicans have countered that the President is entitled to call his own witnesses as a matter of fairness.
Ted Cruz appeared on CBS’s Face the Nation and said alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella and Hunter Biden should testify if that is what the President wants.
On this weekend’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said during the Senate impeachment trial if President Donald Trump wants to call Hunter Biden and the whistleblower, he should be allowed to do so.
Cruz said, “If the president wants to call Hunter Biden, if the president wants to call the whistleblower, due process mandates we allow the president to present his case. We should do so. That is the question for the president and legal team.”
Democrats claim they want a “fair” impeachment trial.
That is a lie.
Democrats want the same rigged process in the Senate that Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler used to steamroll articles of impeachment through the House of Representatives.
