Senior US Senate Asks For Testimony Support Towards Impeachment Hearing

The Republican-led Senate is now under pressure to produce a testimony of four current and former White House aides in a trail which is expected early next year. The testimonies will help decide whether Mr. Donald Trump should remain the President of the United States or not.

This is senior US Senate Democrat Chuck Schumers’ request for formal legal testimonies.  The formal testimonies will comprise White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, former national security adviser John Bolton, Mulvaney aide Robert Blair and budget official Michael Duffey.

The message has been documented in a strong-worded lettered request to Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The letter is a result of McConnell’s announcement of a quick trial where no witness testimony would be required.  Previous attempts for the same four to testify came to knots end, as subpoenas were defied by three except John Bolton who was never issued a subpoena.

Trump’s name may finally be etched into the American history of corrupt politicians this week if a majority House vote decides to impeach him. He has been held responsible for misusing his power by trying to influence Ukraine to investigate the backgrounds of a hopeful presidential Democratic contender Joe Biden. He has also been pulled up for possible obstruction of justice.

The obstruction charges become obvious as White House had directed officials not to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry.

In his letter, Schumer has also stated the need for the Senate to subpoena a “limited set of documents” that he believes would shed light on Trump’s decision to delay the release of $391 million in U.S. aid to Ukraine and the president’s desire for Ukraine to announce investigations into the Bidens.

According to the Democrats, Mr. Donald Trump has endangered the U.S. Constitution, jeopardizing national security and undermining the integrity of the 2020 election when he asked the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a July phone call to investigate Biden, a former U.S. vice president, as well as his son Hunter Biden.
