Trump Lawyers Issue Harsh Rebuke of Dem Request for Trump Testimony

Ouch! Someone get the salve – the Dems just got BURNED.

It’s only a matter of days until former President Donald Trump will once again be facing an impeachment trial, becoming the first President to ever face a second such event.

This time around, Trump stands accused of “inciting an insurrection” – a charge that stems from his speech to a large crowd of supporters on January 6th.  Hours later, many within that crowd would overwhelm Capitol Police and storm the US Capitol – all while Congress was working to certify the results of the 2020 election.

And while it is beginning to look like Trump will once again be acquitted, that hasn’t stopped the Democrats from making the ridiculous request to have the former NYC businessman testify in person.

Trump’s legal team was quick to sternly turn that opportunity down.

Lawyers for Donald Trump on Thursday dismissed a move by House impeachment managers to pressure the former president into testifying at his Senate trial next week as a “public relations stunt” and affirmed their client will not be open to questions.

The statement was bold.

“We are in receipt of your latest public relations stunt,” begins the response from lawyers Bruce Castor and David Schoen.

“As you certainly know, there is no such thing as a negative inference in this unconstitutional proceeding. Your letter only confirms what is known to everyone: you cannot prove your allegations against the 45th President of the United States, who is now a private citizen.
“The use of our Constitution to bring a purported impeachment proceeding is much too serious to try to play these games,” the response concludes.

Some have speculated that Donald Trump’s team, knowing that an acquittal is likely, could use their time on the Hill to further discuss Trump’s belief that the 2020 election was stolen from him.
