On Tuesday, Democratic Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer whined on the Senate floor after his call for new witnesses at the Senate impeachment trial was rejected by Mitch McConnell.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Sunday evening sent Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) his opening pitch and listed four White House witnesses he wants called in to testify at the Senate impeachment trial.
McConnell dismissed Cryin’ Chuck on Tuesday and argued that it is the House’s job to call in witnesses.
“What is Leader McConnell afraid of? What is Trump afraid of? The truth?” Schumer asked.
Schumer then whined that McConnell’s move to dismiss his requests wasn’t “fair.”
“There’s a grand tradition in America — speedy and fair trials. We want both. (Mitch McConnell) seems obsessed with speedy and wants to throw fair out the window,” Schumer whined.
