You're assuming that the end goal was Trump's conviction


I don't believe that's the case. It has been woefully clear that there weren't the votes and the testimony of Bolton, Mulvaney, Giuliani, etc. wasn't going to change that.

Therefore, what's the benefit of going to Court? It would slow the impeachment process, perhaps past the election, thereby defeating the whole purpose. As you suggest, Trump may be unaffected, but you can't say the same about vulnerable Senators. Even if Trump gets re-elected, it's a huge win for the Dems to flip the Senate.

Again, these are politicians, not statesmen. Witnesses in the Senate is a win-win for the Democrats...the House didn't have to delay and new vulnerabilities to Trump and his supporters are opened. As much as politicians think they're smarter than us and that we're incapable of seeing through their true motivations, they're really not.
