The Trump team has declined to testify in the upcoming impeachment trial, affirming to Dems, “you cannot prove your allegations.”
This week, former President Trump rejected an offer from Democrats to testify at his upcoming impeachment trial in the Senate, calling the offer a “public relations stunt.”
The Daily Wire reported that Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin sent Trump the letter on Thursday. Then Trump’s attorneys Bruce Castor and David Schoen rejected the offer hours later.
“We are in receipt of your latest public relations stunt. As you certainly know, there is no such thing as a negative inference in this unconstitutional proceeding,” the attorneys stated. “Your letter only confirms what is known to everyone: you cannot prove your allegations against the 45th President of the United States, who is now a private citizen.”
Rep. Jim Jordan on Impeachment (2/6):@Jim_Jordan: "They don't want Pres. Trump to be able to run in 2024. They know that–until the pandemic–they weren't going to win … That's their goal and they're not going to be able to get there which is a good thing for the country." pic.twitter.com/Xz6qlFjgiJ

Rep. Raskin also apparently threatened Trump that refusing to testify would support a “strong adverse inference regarding your actions (and inaction) on January 6, 2021.”
Several Republican senators have expressed that they see the upcoming impeachment trial as unconstitutional because Trump is already out of office. Only five Republican senators had voted to proceed with the impeachment trial.
The left has relentlessly been at Trump’s throat for years. Even following Biden’s election, they are still not done trying to ruin him.
Impeachment is unnecessary and divisive. As Democrats themselves have admitted, it is a scheme to try and keep Trump from running for office ever again. Americans must continue to elect fair, conservative leaders, otherwise the left will not stop with their predatory politics.
