The Senate held a trial that gave the issue of Impeachment the credibility commensurate to what the House had given it.

In other words, don't confuse people with facts that destroy the narrative that the DNC and the media (redundancy alert) have established.

No, the only one that can remotely be connected to Republicans was Turley and he was not a witness, simply an expert on the issue of Impeachment. He witnessed NOTHING. Shiff and company call Volker, Morrison and Hale.

Schiff would have called Volker, Morrison and Hale anyway. It's nothing but rank hypocrisy to claim Republicans were allowed equal representation when witnesses had to be approved by Schiff and Republicans had no ability to subpoena additional documents.

Republicans were even denied the promised minority day to present evidence and conduct interviews without the heavy hand of Commissar Schiff gaveling the enemy into silence. No wonder the only ones voting to impeach were Democrats.

BTW What happened to the testimony from the auditor that processed the complaint from the so-called whistleblower? Schiff gave him an audition in the basement Starr chamber but he must not have parroted the script as Democrats wanted.

The Republicans requested all four of them. You can keep rationalizing all you like, but the original statement (“17 Democrat witnesses...ZERO president/Republican witnesses”) is a lie.
