If the House gets 19 witnesses, then so should the President

Jan. 30, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging that if witnesses are allowed in the Senate, the President’s legal team should have discretion to call as many witnesses as they want:

“Should the Senate decide to open the door to witnesses, the President should be allowed to call any witness given the House of Representatives decision to not allow his participation in the House impeachment efforts.  At the very least, the President should be allowed to call any witness who was requested by House Republicans including Alexandra Chalupa, Eric Ciaramella, Joe and Hunter Biden. The Senate should not allow the House Managers to use their floor to further their failed witch hunt, without affording the President expansive rights to present alternative witnesses who demonstrate why the inclusion of Biden and/or Burisma into the conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. If the House gets 19 witnesses, then so should the President.”
