These fucking people are off the charts.
I can only imagine the hilarity that would ensue if Trump actually showed up for this Kangaroo Court Kabuki.
The House impeachment managers on Thursday formally requested that former President Trump testify under oath in his Senate impeachment trial, which kicks off next week.
Rep. Jamie Raskin (Md.), the Democrats’ lead impeachment manager, sent a letter to Trump and his attorneys alleging that the former president’s defense — outlined Tuesday in a legal brief — denies irrefutable facts about Trump’s role in the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.
“You have thus attempted to put critical facts at issue notwithstanding the clear and overwhelming evidence of your constitutional offense,” Raskin wrote Trump. “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.”
To clear up the alleged discrepancies, Raskin has asked Trump to testify, and face cross-examination, as early as Monday and not later than Feb. 11, suggesting that the testimony would not necessarily be in the Senate chamber or even in public.
“We would be pleased to arrange such testimony at a mutually convenient time and place,” wrote Raskin, who has asked for a response by 5 p.m. Friday.
Trump’s camp did not immediately respond to requests for comment Thursday afternoon, but he did not testify during his first impeachment by the House in 2019, nor the Senate trial that followed early last year.
