President Trump will Not Testify for Impeachment Show in DC, Democrats Lose Their Lead Star

Senior advisor for President Donald J. Trump, Jason Miller, talked to Fox News about the possibility of his boss testifying in the upcoming Senate impeachment show trial expected to start on February 9th.

“The President will not testify in an unconstitutional proceeding,” Miller told Fox News on Thursday.

Attorneys for Trump fired back on Thursday following Lead Impeachment Manager Rep. Jamie Raskin’s letter calling for Trump to testify before or during the trial.

Raskin’s letter follows:

Dear President Trump,
As you are aware, the United States House of Representatives has approved an impeachment article 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 outlined in the article of impeachment. Thus, you have 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 the 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 no later than Friday, February 5, 2021, at 5 pm. I look forward to your response and to your testimony.
Very truly yours,
Jamie Raskin
Lead Impeachment Manager

The Democrats face an increasingly difficult charge to convince the American people that Trump lead a murderous mob of people to the US Capitol on Jan 6th to participate in an illegal and hostile insurrection. Their entire story is falling apart publically, and now Trump, himself, is not going to be a part of it, so it is unlikely that many people will even care about the show.

The Impeachment shame depends on the Democrats proving that Trump knowingly led his supporters to cause violence on that day.

On Monday, US Representative Alexandria Cortez from New York told a worldwide audience that the violence had been pre-planned well in advance of the event’s day.

One week before the insurrection, I started to get text messages that I needed to be careful — and that I needed to be careful on the 6th [of January]…those text messages came from other members of Congress…” – @AOCon Instagram Live rn, one poster on Twitter wrote.

We all know it was planned by Democrats!!!!!

Além do ROUBO das eleições (quando vejo Biden ou Kamala, ou Obama, ou Clinton, ou CNN e muitos outros (as), não posso me furtar às análises das contagens absurda e visivelmente FRAUDADAS e prossegue o enterro (dos democratas), que cavaram a própria sepultura. Não podem agora enterrar outro(s) em seu lugar. Os democratas estão respirando oxigênio alheio, mas um dia cairão do cavalo! Enquanto isso não acontece, convivamos com o nauseante ROUBO!

Sure it was pre-planned, by Democrats. AOC knew it was going to happen so was NOT anywhere close to the pre-planned “riot” area.
