Senators McConnell & Graham conspired with the defendant to rig his Senate trial by refusing to comply with due process. Trump insisted on cross-examination of witnesses. Trump also has ordered staffers not to comply and is withholding documents. The rules remain the Senate’s.

Will there be compromise witnesses from the subsequent negotiations between House and Senate.
The facts are clear and every witness told the same story, despite the President’s attempts to cover it up. President Trump abused his power for his own personal gain. #DefendOurDemocracy pic.twitter.com/rliiPFKvzi
