The President & Sen. McConnell have run out of excuses. They must allow key witnesses to testify, and produce the documents Trump has blocked, so Americans can see the facts for themselves.
The Senate cannot be complicit in the President’s cover-up. #DefendOurDemocracy https://t.co/TQLJsfn0f5

John Bolton says he’s willing to testify. Will the Republican-led Senate subpoena him? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says they should.
The problem for Republicans is that the evidence of Trump’s extortion in Ukraine is already indisputable. The only excuse left is the dictatorship card: Trump can do whatever he wants, Constitution and law be damned.
But also beginning to accrue is further evidence of the financial reasons for Trump’s entanglement with Russia and its political support for him. Yet he enjoys near unshakable support from 43 percent of Americans despite his dishonesty, poor judgment, instability, incoherence, cruelty and sexual predations.
