This seems quite desperate defence and seems loaded to the gunnels with humbug writ large?

If President rump wants to go to trial in the Senate AS HE HAS REQUESTED, it cannot be with selectively selected witnesses and documents or heavily redacted documents!

The President should have his way and a fair trial! However, a fair trial cannot exclude some witnesses, testimony or any relevant documents!

If there is a problem with any of the above, they can be subsequently disposed of in the senate, not beforehand!
End of story!

Let all the facts be known and let the chips fall where they may and ASAP! Or would you rather they be leaked piecemeal up until November? As the President stonewalls over witness/document release.

If he continues on with this moribund tactic, the courts may decide for him what is or isn't relevant!? And if that is the outcome may prove more harmful to him than simply having them disposed of in the Senate!

Trump haters will be haters. They could not find any breaches of law so they made them up and when exposed dug deeper. Our own abc pushed the lies daily. The journo's know no shame. Yep no wonder people don't trust mainstream news and especially the lying left liberal media. The uni's must be training the journalist in group think lies and virtue signalling.

At age 9, I personally saw the cruel impact of the 'free' media in operation, and have been careful not to believe everything you read or see. These days ( 51 years later in my case), it takes time and effort to scan the range of disparate "truths" spruiked by the supposedly objective, non-partisan claims meet by our media "betters".

Their truth is the only truth, and the rest of us who think or dare to question their offerings are stupid, deplorable, sceptical and denialists!

And these are the same guys who while hating each other, expect themselves to have different laws for them over us regarding their "freedom". Give us a break!

You say <The President should have his way and a fair trial! However, a fair trial cannot exclude some witnesses, testimony or any relevant documents>

The Democrats trial to compile the impeachment, included only witnesses they chose. When they belatedly let a couple of Trumps lawyers in to cross examine their witnesses. If the questioning was leading to answers they didnít like, Chairman Schiff
would keep beating his gavel down and wouldnít allow the question to proceed.
I watched a lot of this so called trial.

Now the Democrats are witholding their impeachment which was so urgent from the Senate because they know they wonít have the control in the senate to shut down questions they donít want asked.

If the Democrats are so dammed worried about the danger of bribery and Quid Pro Quo why havenít they put Joe Biden and his son Hunter on trial for the self confessed
withholding of 1 billion dollars from Ukraine aid, if the Ukrainian prosecutor wasnít called off investigating corruption against his son, who was being paid $ 600,000 a year in a job he had no qualifications for. Iíve seen that utube video, Joe not only boasts about what he did, he thinks itís funny.

The truth is the Democrats couldnít care less about Trumps phone call which is much less serious than what Joe Biden did. They are trying to bring down a democratically elected President. Whoís the Whistleblower? Schiffs grandmother?

Cherful:
The trial that Presiden Trump demanded in the Senate should proceed even if the allegorical judge and jury are stacked with Trump supporters.

And they will be able to challenge any witness or document or present countervailing of the same. Any of which can be disposed of by legal remedy available to the Senate. That you still have a problem with that speaks volumes and none of it complimentary!

Trump Has nothing to fear from a fair trial but perhaps plenty if the actual truth is exposed and leaked?

From where I sit that seems to be his greatest concern. Don't forget an impeached President remains impeached for life!
