House Dems demand Trump appear at the trial in person or else

House Democrats sent a letter to DJT demanding he appear in person at the sham impeachment trial. They want to grill him.

The letter was signed by Lead Impeachment Manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), the letter reads as follows:

Dear President Trump,

As you are aware, the United States House of Representatives has approved an article of impeachment against you for incitement of insurrection. See H. Res. 24. The Senate trial for this article of impeachment will begin on Tuesday, February 9, 2021. See S. Res. 16.

Two days ago, you filed an Answer in which you denied many factual allegations set forth in the article of impeachment. You have thus attempted to put critical facts at issue notwithstanding the clear and overwhelming evidence of your constitutional offense. In light of your disputing these factual allegations, I write to invite you to provide testimony under oath, either before or during the Senate impeachment trial, concerning your conduct on January 6, 2021. We would propose that you provide your testimony (of course including cross-examination) as early as Monday, February 8, 2021, and not later than Thursday, February 11, 2021. We would be pleased to arrange such testimony at a mutually convenient time and place.

Presidents Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton both provided testimony while in office – and the Supreme Court held just last year that you were not immune from legal process while serving as President – so there is no doubt that you can testify in these proceedings. Indeed, whereas a sitting President might raise concerns about distraction from their official duties, that concern is obviously inapplicable here. We therefore anticipate your availability to testify.

If you decline this invitation, we reserve any and all rights, including the right to establish at trial that your refusal to testify supports a strong adverse inference regarding your actions (and inaction) on January 6, 2021.

I would request that you respond to this letter by no later than Friday, February 5, 2021 at 5pm. I look forward to your response and to your testimony.

The comrades think they got it all wrapped up, they think that the Plandemic is the perfect prescription to get rid of DJT along with the peach mints redux.
Love that meme of Trump as Bluto Blutarski saying I’ll have the peach mint.
Yea…Trumpster didn’t know what was going on until the CPUSA fifth column sent a letter.
The DERP is strong with the neo-Bolsheviks.

Look at the house dem marxists, impeached Trump without any hearings or testimony. They did not allow him representation. Now, faced with no case, they want to publicly humiliate him.

Trump’s innocence is rock solid, no accused person appears before a court to testify when acquittal is certain. The dems just want to make noise and spread more stench. The repubs, fully the enablers of this lawlessness, would then do their hero act.

This is the tip of the iceberg of the massive repression underway in the USA.

The poor disillusioned Democrats aren’t going to get their show trial. The Constitution demands that the Chief Just preside over an Impeachment trial of the President and he refused. This pretty much indicates how legal the Supreme Court thinks the show trial is.
