Democrats threaten Trump after he refuses to testify at his impeachment trial

As if it mattered. They will do everything they can to convict him, whether he testifies or not.

According to the Washington Times:

Former President Donald Trump brushed aside impeachment managers’ demand Thursday that he testify at his looming Senate trial, accusing House Democrats of trying to turn the weighty proceedings into “a public relations stunt.”

Rep. Jamie Raskin, Maryland Democrat and leader of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment team, sent the stunning demand for testimony in a letter to Mr. Trump.

He said the former president needed to defend under oath his behavior surrounding the election and the events of Jan. 6. He also said a refusal would be evidence of Mr. Trump’s guilt.

“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,” the congressman wrote.

The former president’s legal team brushed aside the demand.

“The use of our Constitution to bring purported impeachment proceedings is much too serious to try to play these games,” Trump attorneys David Schoen and Bruce Castor Jr. wrote in their reply.

  1. The Democrats will stop at nothing to harass, even threaten, President Trump. It is shameless and wrong. They just won’t stop. I feel very much for President Trump. After all the good he did for our country and for average hard working Americans, he doesn’t deserve this.

  2. I am Canadian, but I love President Trump. Some of his speeches brought me to tears. The Democrats, especially demented Nancy Pelosi, have just been wickedly cruel and I have cried over the way President Trump has been treated. I believe he truly loves the USA. We all know he won the election.

    1. You are not alone IMNODHIMMI. People around the world love President Trump, places such as Hong Kong, S Korea, Japan, Africa, etc. They demonstrate this love in marches, carrying posters of Trump, displaying American flags and chanting “4 more years”, “we love Trump” and other similar slogans. I’ve also listened to his speeches (many of them) and he is a compassionate person who expresses his feelings about those who have suffered injustices of all sorts. And he worked hard to rectify those injustices and minimize their sufferings. I feel grateful for the work he has done. It’s heart wrenching to see how he is being treated. He will be sorely missed, not only by me, but by millions in the USA and around the world. And, yes, I agree with you – President Trump won the election.
