Now the GOP wants fact witnesses...you know…those guys and gals that were actually in the room. Well, you know, other that than deep stater Colonel Vindman.
It sounds like Republicans will only be satisfied if folks like Mick Mulvaney and Rudy Giuliani and John Bolton and Mike Pompeo testify under oath. These proud American patriots—the president’s chief-of-staff, personal lawyer, former National Security Adviser and current Secretary of State—were direct witnesses to the scheme, which the president’s allies assure us was no big deal. They can clear all this up!
And I am sure that Rep. Adam Schiff would say…bring them on! Except:
Except the White House has blocked all of them from testifying. Which is, of course, the point. The Republicans will only accept evidence from Fact Witnesses, but as soon as you subpoena the Fact Witnesses, they cease to be available as Fact Witnesses.
Whoops…how did that happen?
By the way, apparently Rudy Giuliani is back in Ukraine again. Is he asking for political asylum?
