Why is it so important to Trump's defense attorneys and Mitch McConnell to rush through the Impeachment Trial with no witnesses?

    For one, it's getting ever closer to the primaries and then the national elections. The more time the Republicans spend on the impeachment, the less time they'll have for the elections. And there are several important seats up for reelection that the Republicans could lose to Democrats if the Republicans don't put in some effort.

    But most of us believe that additional witnesses could be detrimental to Trump's case. And if some of those witnesses are first-hand witnesses and under oath swear that Trump did attempt to extort Ukraine for political purposes, even some Republicans would be motivated to vote Trump guilty.

    Ask why Pelosi and Schiff didn't compel testimony from these witnesses during the House impeachment inquiry? The Dems had the opportunity to examine anyone hey wanted. All they had to do is take the subpoenas to court. It's THEY who wanted to rush though things.

    Another form of a cover up so the truth won't come out.

    “This is the impeachment trial of Donald Trump. No matter what happens at it, that’s what it is. It needs to end with the acquittal ASAP. The purpose of this is not to investigate Democrats. Nobody’s watching this anyway.” -Rush Limbaugh

    Because witnesses are for the impeachment, not the trial. Try to keep up.

    Officially Trump is being tried by the Senate.  Since the Senate is majority Republican, he'll very likely be exonerated.  In fact many Republican senator said, even before the trial began, that they'd clear Trump.

    The thing is, if the evidence is out there, Trump will be tried by The People, in November.  Being cleared by the partisan senate is useless if most Americans know he's guilty and he doesn't get re-elected.  So the Republicans have a strong incentive to suppress the evidence.  They're not doing the best job of that.

    It's kind of ironic if you think about it, that McConnell can't get enough votes to suppress the evidence, even from Republicans who know they're going to find him innocent.

    Re-election means a LOT to Trump.  He's on the hook for several charges in NY State.  If he gets re-elected the statute of limitations will run out, but if he's no longer president a year from now he stands a good chance of going to prison.

      As opposed to being impeached by the partisan congress? Got it! I'm straight, now.

    No rush at all. Just normal speed under the circumstances.

    There's no reason to waste time with "witnesses" when the senators already have the information they need. Even if all the facts the house Democrats allege are true, the Senators have rightly decided that it doesn't warrant removal from office. So there's no reason for witnesses to prove that the allegations are true.

    If witnesses will not change the outcome, they are a waste of time. Just dismiss the case and get back to the nation's business!
