I answered you.


This should have been an open, transparent and thorough process from the start. If the House felt it required certain witnesses to make their case (as they appear to now), they should have used the means afforded them in the Constitution to do so. For some reason, they felt a need to rush it through...that this was a matter of such urgency that they would present a case to the Senate they themselves knew had zero chance of succeeding. If you want to know my position, read Turley's testimony... an argument that Nadler & Co. summarily dismissed.

To carry on my prior analogy, the Senate calling witnesses is akin to someone in the jury box saying to the DA, "You didn't make a compelling case, but let's hear from Witness X, because that might change my mind." He might be right, but not really his role.

Personally, go ahead and call witnesses. But that doesn't excuse the fact that the House failed to do its job and here we are.
