But McConell says “Nyet”. Not on his watch will he allow witnesses.
“So when it’s fair — and it will be fair in the Senate. I would love to have Mike Pompeo. I’d love to have Mick. I’d love to have Rick Perry and many other people testify. But I don’t want them to testify when this is a total fix. You know what a fix is? This is a fix…
…but I want them to testify, but I want them to testify in the Senate where they’ll get a fair trial.” NATO Summit press conference with PM Trudeau.
I would bet while Mitch was “consulting” with the White House, he told Trump to demand witnesses. But then he would make it all “go away” by refusing to do so.
To borrow from Bill Maher: Trump’s asking Comey to end the Russia thing by making it “go away” like a restaurant owner asking a food inspector “can’t you just make this go away” after finding a human finger in the linguini.
Mitch, the food inspector, intends to do just that.
IMHO, of course.
