If Obama Had Extorted Ukraine: A Thought Experiment

impeach obama

REPUBLICAN: We have 17 witnesses with knowledge of Obama’s abuse of his powers.

DEMOCRAT: But each of your 17 witnesses has only indirect and circumstantial knowledge. We must acquit.

REPUBLICAN: I have just found one more witness willing to testify, and his testimony is direct, not indirect or circumstantial.

DEMOCRAT: What would we learn from the eighteenth witness that we did not already know from the first 17? We must refuse to hear the new witness, and we must acquit.

Apparently, the Republican senators are going to stand up on the Senate floor and explain their votes. It should be a treat.
