Donald Trump Must Be Cross-examined at His Impeachment Trial Where He Can’t Run From Facts | Opinion

President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are desperately trying to block a real trial in the Senate, not because they are fearful of the testimony of witnesses such as former National Security Adviser John Bolton, but because they fear that pressure will build for the House managers to call Donald Trump as their star witness. A real trial means live witnesses who provide direct testimony and are cross-examined.

There is no dispute that the witness with the most material knowledge of the facts surrounding the alleged shakedown of Ukraine is Donald J. Trump. Indeed, he claims that his July 25th call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy was “perfect” and that he did nothing wrong. The problem for Trump is that his lies and obfuscation cannot withstand a vigorous cross-examination of the facts.
