Trump Lawyers Dismiss Request for Former President to Testify During Impeachment Trial

Former President Donald Trump’s team dismissed a request for the former president to testify under oath at the pending Senate impeachment trial.

House Democratic impeachment managers led by Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) sent a letter to Trump calling on him to testify at his second impeachment trial and said that if he doesn’t, they would use it against him during the event—a similar tactic and argument they used during the first impeachment trial.

“Two days ago, you filed an Answer in which you denied many factual allegations set forth in the article of impeachment. You have thus attempted to put critical facts at issue notwithstanding the clear and overwhelming evidence of your constitutional offense,” Raskin wrote to Trump, adding, “I write to invite you to provide testimony under oath, either before or during the Senate impeachment trial, concerning your conduct on January 6, 2021.”
