    Default "House Democrats may call new impeachment witnesses if Senate doesn't"

    "Key House Democrats pressing the Senate to hear from new witnesses in President Trump’s impeachment trial are leaving the door open to another possibility: calling those witnesses themselves if Senate Republicans do not."

    "If McConnell has his way and prevents new witnesses from appearing, they may find a stage in the House, where a number of Democrats are already advocating for their testimony if they’re silenced by the Senate."

    "This week, Parnas offered vivid new details of that campaign, providing Democrats with a trove of documents, phone records, emails and text-messages related to his communications with Giuliani, a disreputable Ukrainian prosecutor, an unstable Republican landscaper. Much of the information Parnas provided came in the form of concrete communications records and physical documents."

    "Aside from Parnas and Bolton, Democrats are also clamoring to hear testimony from a number of other administration officials, many of whom had declined to appear before the lower chamber last year after the White House blocked their participation."

    Could be really interesting if the Intelligence Committee took up the hearings with Nunes being the minority leader

    They can speed dial them; but that doesn't mean that they're going to be allowed in the Senate.

    Parnas is out on bail. He is accused of lying to the government and filing fraudulent records with the government.
    Trump doesn't wear glasses because he already has 2020.

    Who cares if the House Dems call witnesses.

    The trial is in the Senate, a simple majority of 51 will determine the issue and the House can't vote in the Senate.

    Can you show us the constitutional authority for this? The Constitution is pretty clear on impeachment. The role of the House is over at this point.
    Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent

    I think he means re-starting the inquiry all over again in the House lol.

    Except this time with witnesses they failed to call in the first place. This whole charade is a cluster of the first order.

    If Democrats insist on a do-over they should be forced to declare Trump unimpeached, first.

    Not even. They left it open ended. YOU all said Schiff was 'shifty'. You meant SMART.

    I don't think they need to declare it........its pretty much obvious to everyone that it wasn't "forever", but was "never".......
