McConnell opens door for Hunter Biden testimony at Trump trial
The Hill ^ | 01 14 2020 | Alexander Bolton

Posted on 01/14/2020 12:04:10 PM PST by yesthatjallen

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says Republicans could subpoena Hunter Biden to testify about his business dealings with a Ukrainian gas company if Democrats insist on having witnesses such as former National Security Adviser John Bolton testify at the Senate impeachment trial.

“We’ll be dealing with the witness issue at the appropriate time into the trial and I think it’s certainly appropriate to point out that both sides would want to call witnesses they wanted to hear from,” McConnell told reporters Tuesday when asked about GOP senators who want Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, to testify.

“When you get to that issue, I can’t imagine that only the witnesses that our Democratic colleagues would want to call would be called,” he said.

The GOP leader also noted “there is little or no sentiment in the Republican conference for a motion to dismiss” the articles of impeachment immediately, adding, “our members feel that we have an obligation to listen to the arguments.”

Is this the closest the deep state will ever get to facing trial?

Trump has tweeted his preference is for a dismissal without trial. As usual McConnell and the GOP Senate ignore the wishes of POTUS.

OK, Democrats - do you still wanna call witnesses? I bet not.

Your RINO clowns in the Senate can’t help you there. Be careful what you wish for - you may just get it.

Let’s see if they’ll open that door.

I have the feeling the Dems are going to push this down hill and it will get out of control, for them.

The President’s legal team has a lot of witnesses they’re willing to call.

Democrats can’t prevent it because they don’t run the Senate. Have at it.

I agree. The Dems are allowing hate to dictate their moves. It’s a no win for them.

Jesse Watters on Fox News reported that Hunter Biden is living in his $2.5 million dollar house in Beverly Hills, CA. I don’t think you can find a house to buy in Beverly Hills for under $3 million. Judging by the picture of the house that Jesse Waters showed it would probably be worth more than $4 million.

“Trump has tweeted his preference is for a dismissal without trial. As usual McConnell and the GOP Senate ignore the wishes of POTUS.”

Apparently McConnell doesn’t have the votes for an outright dismissal without trial because of certain RINOS.

The President does. He’s the one who deserves a fair trial.

And what are the Democrats doing? Sitting on their turd impeachment.

Hunter will be found OD in a seedy Motel 6 before he is forced to testify.
