These people are living in a fantasy land…
Senator Angus King (I-ME) recently appeared on Fox News and insisted that if President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial has no witnesses, he “can’t say he was exonerated.”
According to Breitbart, King stated, “I think the question about witnesses is an important one because from— frankly from the president’s point of view, if this trial winds up in the next 24, 48 hours with no witnesses, he can say, ‘Well, I was acquitted,’ but he really can’t say he was exonerated. I think there will always be an asterisk by this trial, but no witnesses.”
Adding, “I mean, one of the senators last night said we had a judge impeachment about ten years ago. There were 22 witnesses, and we’re having no witnesses in the Senate. It’s never happened before. The American people understand they watch ‘Perry Mason’ and ‘Law & Order,’ you always have witnesses.” You can watch a clip of King’s comments here.
