Let President Trump and the GOP produce every witness and document in exchange for allowing the Democrats the same privileges, including all the documents the administration has been hiding. This way the American people get to see the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Enough is enough.
The back and forth between President Trump, his GOP supporters and Democrats are on route to destroying our republic. It has to end.
The truth about what happened during the 2016 election and President Trump’s Ukrainian scandal will eventually come out. Therefore every American and me should call on Senate Democrats and Republicans to unanimously pass a motion that comprehensively allows President Trump’s lawyers and Democratic floor managers an unfettered opportunity to bring in all the witnesses and existing documents.
I for one, want to see all the documents and hear from former and current Trump administration officials that were withheld from the House of Representatives during the impeachment inquiry as well as any new witnesses. The American people deserve complete transparency from both sides; it’s just that simple.
Anyone paying attention realizes that if President Trump were filmed murdering an innocent person, he wouldn’t lose enough GOP Senators in a vote to remove him from office. This is known.
However, if President Trump released all of the documents requested and allowed all the witnesses during the Senate trial, he might well persuade many Democrats and Independents in the Senate to vote against conviction to dramatically improve his chances of re-election.
Like most voters, I could care less how long the trial lasts. Let Rudy Giuliani testify and be cross-examined. Allow Meghan, Pompeo, Parnas, Mulvaney, Barr, Perry, Donald Trump Jr, Hunter, and Joe Biden and for that matter, anyone on either side wants to testify and release all the documents to the ninety-nine Senators, un-redacted.
Allow the Chief Justice to determine what in those documents should be redacted. This is the most important Senate trial in our Republic’s history and may determine our nation survives as a democracy.
I suspect Senate Leader Mitch McConnell and President Trump would prefer just to dismiss the case and claim Donald Trump was exonerated. Everyone knows why McConnell and the GOP Senators are shaking in fear at the introduction of all the facts. They fear full transparency will prove the President’s guilt and cost them control of all three branches of government by losing the 2020 election in a landslide.
The GOP Senators know at the same time, what is being hidden will eventually become public. The truth always comes out. They’re playing the game of hiding the truth from the American people.
The Democrats must insist on ALL witnesses and documents being introduced into the trial. They shouldn’t have any fear of the truth. What are the Democrats really afraid of; that Rudy Giuliani will show that his conspiracy theories are substantive?
Less than two weeks ago, the Washington Post reported the Trump Justice Department's “inquiry” of Hillary Clinton has effectively ended with no finding of criminal wrongdoing.
“A Justice Department inquiry launched more than two years ago to mollify conservatives clamoring for more investigations of Hillary Clinton has effectively ended with no tangible results, and current and former law enforcement officials said they never expected the effort to produce much of anything.”
According to WaPo…
“Current and former officials said that U.S. Attorney John Huber, who was tapped by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has largely finished a look at possible corruption at the Clinton Foundation and the Obama-era sale of a uranium mining company, Uranium One, during Clinton’s time as secretary of state.”
U.S. Attorney John Huber, Attorney General William Barr and for that matter, President Donald J. Trump will never release an official statement on the findings because it shows that the President has lied to the American people for more than five years. Meanwhile, Trump supporters still chant when prompted to lock her up.
Let this Senate trial to remove President Trump from office become a catalyst for telling the whole truth to the world. Democrats should offer a motion to let all the witnesses and documents in and all-Republican Senators vote with their colleagues across the aisle to allow everything to be revealed. Enough is enough.
