From our friends at Progress NC:
On ELEVEN separate votes late Tuesday night and into the wee hours of Wednesday morning, Senators Tillis and Burr voted in lock-step with President Trump to deny the Senate impeachment trial from hearing from new witnesses. They voted in lock-step to deny subpoenas for new documents deep inside the Trump administration.
Instead of #WitnessesAndDocuments, Republicans in the U.S. Senate are denying all requests for new information. They would rather have a #ShamTrial and hope the American people won’t notice, and hope those who do notice will forget in time for the 2020 election.
What will witnesses like Trump’s former National Security Advisor, John Bolton, say? What will documents from deep inside the Trump administration show about why military aid was withheld from Ukraine?
We don’t know. But the American people deserve the truth. And North Carolina’s U.S. Senators should want the truth, not a #ShamTrial to simply protect Donald Trump.
