The impeachment witch hunt is nearing its conclusion.
Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are staging a power play to rig an impeachment trial against President Trump.
But this top Republican shut down Chuck Schumer with a stunning impeachment warning.
Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi knew their laughably weak impeachment case is doomed for defeat in the Senate.
The Republican-controlled Senate is set to hold an impeachment trial that will result in some Democrats joining Republicans to exonerate the President from the sham charges Pelosi and the Democrats charged him with in their articles of impeachment.
Facing that reality, Pelosi and Schumer launched a partisan attack on the impeachment trial itself to taint the process so Democrats can claim the President wasn’t exonerated.
Schumer is demanding the Democrats be allowed to call witnesses the House of Representatives refused to pursue legal options to compel their testimony.
Republicans argue it’s not the Senate’s job to conduct a fact-finding expedition on behalf of the Democrats in the House of Representatives.
Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy dissected the Democrats’ scheme in an interview on fake news CNN’s Sunday morning “State of the Union” program with host Jake Tapper.
Kennedy explained that Democrats whining about the Senate not calling former National Security Advisor John Bolton or acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to testify was partisan hackery.
“Speaker Pelosi decided not to take the normal route and get a decision by third branch of government,” Kennedy pointed out proceeding with impeachment instead of trying to win court battles to compel Mulvaney and Bolton’s testimony “…was her call.”
Kennedy then got down to the nuts and bolts of witnesses in an impeachment trial and how the Democrats’ scheme to blackmail the Senate into letting the Democrats run the trial could backfire.
“In the Senate, if we tomorrow agreed with Senator Schumer, who I think is speaking for Speaker Pelosi, I fully expect the president to do two things, claim executive privilege, which is his right, and number two, demand his own list of witnesses,” Kennedy continued.
“Now, if the president does that, we could end up with a scenario where Chuck caught the car,” Kennedy explained to Tapper.
Kennedy reasoned that since the President would claim executive privilege to block Bolton and Mulvaney’s testimony it would take months for the court battle to play out.
Meanwhile, if Republicans agree to let Democrats call their own witnesses then it is only fair to let the President put key players like Hunter Biden and alleged so-called “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella on the stand.
And there are no claims of privilege that would prevent Ciaramella and Biden from testifying.
“The president’s witnesses don’t testify if the Senate doesn’t want to pursue it in court, or the — Senator Schumer’s witnesses don’t testify but the president’s witnesses do. I don’t think Senator Schumer would think that is fair,” Kennedy concluded.
