Lankford says Trump a conundrum, not a role model

Lankford says Trump a conundrum, not a role model

No doubt many will eventually retire well by writing books after President Donald Trump's impeachment trial and perhaps serious damage is done to the Republican Party.

"The president has a spokesperson and I'm not the president's spokesperson", he said. Warren has said Trump should be impeached. "Well, I don't know if anybody would have the courage to give me the case, but, uh, if you give me the case, I will prosecute it as a racketeering case, which I kind of invented anyway".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has recently stated that he will be in "total coordination" with the White House and rejected calls from Democrats for witnesses to appear to the trial. "I don't think this is an opinion, I think this is a historical fact. the most rushed, the most unfair as it relates to the defendant relative to other impeachment trials and certainly the most partisan impeachment in US history", said Sullivan.

As the president's personal attorney, Giuliani was not expected to play a role in his defense, and the Democratic-controlled House would appoint managers to make the case against the president during a Senate trial.

Giuliani's testimony, if it ever occurs, could be revealing. What I don't understand is why the House, having issued subpoenas to Secretary Pompeo, for example, did not seek to enforce those subpoenas in court, and instead rush to get the articles of impeachment passed before Christmas, and yet have not transmitted them to us in the Senate.

"It's not just that Nancy Pelosi raises money for her political caucus, it's that Nancy Pelosi uses that money as a political weapon against anyone who would potentially vote against impeachment", Gaetz said.

Giuliani has been at the center of the impeachment proceedings and would be a key witness for Democrats, many of whom allege the president's attorney carried out a shadow foreign policy in Ukraine. They allege that Trump was seeking investigations into his political opponents.

Sullivan does not believe the U.S. House has been fair and impartial.

The impeachment inquiry into Trump was launched by the Democrat-led House of Representatives over his 25 July telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The American leader's request came as he temporarily was blocking release of $391 million in military aid Ukraine wanted to help fight pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.

He said Trump can pose "a bit of a conundrum sometimes".
