CNN analyst and amateur clown Joe Lockhart made it clear Tuesday morning that Twitter should investigate Sen. Ted Cruz because one of his aids likely sent out a tweet while Cruz was in lockdown at the Senate impeachment trial. “Did he sneak a phone in. Is he willing to go to prison?” Lockhart asked, seriously.
For what it’s worth, Sen. Elizabeth Warren is on lockdown too, and her Twitter feed just sent out her new ad, and House Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff has been tweeting clips of himself from PBS NewsHour all day while speaking on the floor. Better investigate them too.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made it clear while the House was sitting on the articles of impeachment that it was the job of the House to get its case together before marching it over to the Senate, but Schiff isn’t giving up until House Democrats get their way and the Senate calls witnesses.
Trump's lawyer claimed the House isn't ready to present our case.
The House calls John Bolton to testify. The House calls Mick Mulvaney.
We’re ready to present our case, ready to call witnesses, ready to see the documents.
The question: Will the Senate let us? pic.twitter.com/MD5d1bqsxU

If you wanted John Bolton or Mick Mulvaney to testify, you probably should have waited for them to testify instead of rushing the vote.

Adam Schiff must be the first prosecutor to show up at a trial and say, “Gosh, there are a bunch of things I don’t know about this case but would be interested in finding out”

It isn’t new for politicians to ignore the arguments against them, just flat ignore them. But Schiff takes it to a level where the pathology is only matched by his oiliness. Just tell us why you didn’t call witnesses and why the minority was so frozen out. We know why.

Rushing the vote, then hiding the articles in a dusty drawer for a month.

They’d still be waiting.

6 Dem Senators called for impeachment & removal during Presidential debates before evidence or hearings in the Senate.
4 Senators will vote for the removal of their political rival in the upcoming Presidential election

But they think McConnell is the one who has to recuse himself.
If you were ready, you wouldn't need more witnesses and documents. ?

You had your chance before sending articles to the Senate. You wanna play in the Senate? Run for a seat.
— Monika (@MonikaMusing) January 21, 2020
Sorry, you’re arguing FACTS not in evidence AND you’re calling people not on your witness list, there’s been no deposition or interviews so the defense can have the opportunity to question and prepare for cross…Your motion is therefore denied! ?.
— madison ford (@madisonford56) January 21, 2020
But the House DIDN’T call Bolton or Mulvaney when you had the chance. You chose to rush the vote instead. You made your own bed.
— Liz Wheeler (@Liz_Wheeler) January 21, 2020
Serious question, Adam…why didn’t you call Bolton & Mulvaney to testify during the impeachment inquiry??
Because you are looking extremely incompetent if you’re expecting the Senate to do your job for you.
— Bradley Scott ??? (@Hoosiers1986) January 21, 2020
You had your chance to call witnesses. Now McConnell gets to do to you, what you did to House Republicans.
— InTheRightColumn (@TheRightColumn) January 21, 2020
It was your job to call any witnesses you thought you needed when you were conducting the impeachment proceedings in the House
It’s the job of the Senate to judge guilt based on the info you provide them, not to reinvestigate things

Should have done that already pic.twitter.com/uDo1gVt20o
— Jon Housley (@housleyjon) January 21, 2020
You should have been ready the day after the House voted. The evidence you used to impeach should be all you need for the trial.

Let me answer that question: NO
We played by your biased rules once. Once. @senatemajldr will be calling the shots from here on out. Get ready for more disappointment.

The House calls @RepAdamSchiff for his lies, leaks and witness tampering.
— Mk Moore (@KewguysMk) January 21, 2020
Lets call you, Joe and Hunter Biden to testify…
— News For Thinkers (@NewsForThinkers) January 21, 2020
The Senate calls Adam Schiff
The Senate calls Joe Biden
The Senate calls Hunter Biden
The Senate calls Nancy Pelosi
The Senate calls "The Whistleblower"
Oh, then we might entertain your requests with the same impartiality that you did ours in the House.
