Mitch McConnell Shuts Down Chuck Schumer’s Witness Request


It seem as though the Democrats may have far too short a memory when it comes to this impeachment fiasco.

You see, during the House’s portion of the process, Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff made his mark, disallowing a great deal of pertinent testimony being requested by the Republicans and consummately tainting the entire debacle with his lopsided reading of the rules.  This annoyed the GOP to no end, with many member still decrying his tactics to this day.

Now, as the Republican-controlled Senate stands ready to take up the mantle of impeachment, they have not forgotten Schiff’s work, and are pushing back with an equal and balanced fervor.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) dismissed Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) call to have four White House witnesses testify in the Senate’s likely impeachment trial, arguing that it’s the House’s “duty to investigate” and that the Senate will not volunteer its time for a “fishing expedition.”

From McConnell himself:

We don’t create impeachments, Mr. President. We judge them. 
“The House chose this road. It is their duty to investigate. It’s their duty to meet the very high bar for undoing a national election. As Speaker Pelosi herself once said, it is the House’s obligation to, quote, ‘build an ironclad case to act.’
“If they fail, they fail. It is not the Senate’s job to leap into the breach and search desperately for ways to get to guilty. That would hardly be impartial justice.”
McConnell has long promised that President Trump would receive a fair but swift trial in the Senate, that would almost certainly lead to his acquittal.
