Schiff Rules Out ‘Fantasy Football’ Witness Trade

Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden speaks during a campaign event at the North Iowa Events Center, Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020, in Mason City, Iowa. "They're trying to do that".

"We want these four witnesses, these four sets of documents", Schumer said.

Biden was asked by a voter if he considered testifying or allowing his son, Hunter, to be a witness in return for the testimony of former national security adviser John Bolton and acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney at President Trump's Senate trial.

The Senate will eventually vote on dismissing the impeachment articles against Trump or convicting him.

Rep. Sylvia Garcia (D-TX), one of House impeachment managers, took aim at GOP-backed conspiracy theories around Burisma during the second day of opening impeachment arguments on Thursday, dismantling a key allegation linking Joe Biden to the Ukrainian gas company on whose board Hunter Biden Saturday.

Other Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, have also ruled out the possibility after pushing for witnesses to testify in the Senate trial. "Trials aren't trades for witnesses", Schiff said. That's not a trade.

"Every witness with knowledge of this issue testified that Biden was following official US policy in calling for Shokin's removal", said Garcia, who noted that the move was supported by a bipartisan group of senators, including Republicans Rob Portman and Ron Johnson.

"I think the House managers made a very serious strategic error today", Cruz told ABC News.

He ran through a laundry list of Republican complaints like "they're taking too long, or Nancy handed out pens or oh, Jerry Nadler said these words", but said "They can not answer the argument, and the American people, to each of their senators, Democrat and Republican, is asking now and will ask on into the future, why were you so afraid of witnesses and documents? That's not what they want".
