To: Mitch McConnell and senate Republicans

The Senate should require direct witnesses to testify for a fair impeachment trial in the Senate.

Mitch McConnell has stated he will not allow any direct witnesses to testify in the Senate impeachment trial against Donald Trump. This is unacceptable. Mitch McConnell is not fulfilling his oath of office as Senate Majority Leader. He should call all direct witnesses to testify because Americans have a right to know the truth.

McConnell should require the testimony of all direct witnesses before the Senate to ensure a fair impeachment trial.

Why is this important?

The House of Representatives impeaching a sitting president is historic and needs to be taken seriously by the Senate. Unfortunately, however, Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans are falling into their political lines and staying complicit with the greed and corruption of this administration.

Mitch McConnell is protecting an administration rife with bribery, obstruction of justice, and corruption.

McConnell must remember he is accountable to the American public, not this administration. As such, he must allow witnesses to publicly testify. If this administration has done no wrongdoing, then these direct witnesses will be able to provide President Trump some very much needed exculpatory evidence. If there was no wrongdoing, Republicans, McConnell, and this administration should have nothing to fear from the questioning of first-hand witnesses.

First-hand, direct witnesses should be required to testify in front of the Senate for a fair impeachment trial. The American people have a right to hear the truth.
