    Witnesses would only prove Trump is guilty.

    Wrong. the impeachment process is over. The trial in the Senate starts today. There is no requirement or reason for senators to listen to witnesses beyond what the prosecution has presented. In a real trial in a criminal case, the jury does not call witnesses.

    Because all Republicans know that allowing witnesses will result in a massive conviction of Trump.  Remember, those Republican Senators took an oath.  If they greatly limit the evidence presented at Trump's trial, they technically aren't in violation of that oath.

     "I solemnly swear that in all things appertaining to the trial of Donald J. Trump, now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws, so help me God."

     Trump and Republicans don't want anymore self-inflicted wounds.

    It it because the articles of the impeachment are not valid for a legal constitutional impeachment against the President?

    They simply don't want anyone to hear the truth; witnesses would provide evidence and evidence would put them all in precarious career positions.
