House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) along with the recently appointed House impeachment managers are now ridiculously asking for White House Counsel Pat Cipollone to be removed from President Trump’s Senate trial.
According to Breitbart, Schiff is arguing that since President Trump has been charged with “obstruction of Congress” by following legal advice to reject subpoenas, his lead attorney who happens to be Pat Cipollone is a “material fact witness.”
In the letter, “Evidence indicates that, at a minimum, you have detailed knowledge of the facts regarding the first Article and played an instrumental role in the conduct charged in the second Article. The ethical rules generally preclude a lawyer from acting as an advocate at a trial in which he is likely also a necessary witness.”
According to these insane Democrats, If Cipollone wants to represent President Trump, he must “disclose all facts and information to which you have first-hand knowledge that will be at issue in connection with evidence you present or arguments you make in your role as the President’s legal advocate.”
This is just another attempt by greedy House Democrats to control the outcome of the Senate trial and remove Trump for good.
So, lets review: the Democrats don’t want Trump to call any witnesses, he can’t dispute any of their so called “evidence”, he isn’t allowed to know the name of the whistleblower, and now they are looking to BAN his own defense team.
What kind of a trial is this?!?
