Schumer Statement After Senate GOP Blocked Witnesses & Documents In Senate Impeachment Trial

January 31, 2020

Washington, D.C. – Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer released the following statement after Senate Republicans blocked testimony from key witnesses and documents in the Senate impeachment trial:

“To not allow witnesses or documents in an impeachment trial is a grand tragedy, one of the worst tragedies that the Senate has ever overcome. America will remember this day—a day when the United Senate did not live up to its responsibilities, turned away from truth and instead went along with a sham trial. If the president is acquitted with no witnesses, no documents, any acquittal will have no value because Americans will know that this trial was not a real trial. It’s a tragedy on a very large scale.”
