Watch: Schumer Drops The Hammer On McConnell For Attempting To Hold Corrupt Impeachment Trials

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) held a press conference on Monday where he called out Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for attempting to withhold witnesses at the impeachment trial of Donald Trump.

While speaking to reporters, Schumer said that McConnell had indicated he was ready to negotiate on rules for a Senate trial.

“Senate Democrats believe strongly that the trial must be fair and it’s very important that the American people judge it to be fair,” Schumer said. “A fair trial is one where Senators get all the facts & one that allows them to adjudicate the case impartially.”

“Trials have witnesses!” he exclaimed at one point.

Schumer went on to suggest that if McConnell doesn’t allow witnesses at the impeachment trials then it would suggest that he and Trump have something to hide.

“To engage a trial how much without the facts come out is to engage in a cover-up,” Schumer charged. “If Leader McConnell doesn’t hold the full and fair trial the American people will rightly ask ask, what are you, Leader McConnell, and what is president from hiding?”
