He must testify under oath.

The American people deserve the truth.

Twitter Media Studio : The Trump administration blocked the release of 20 emails between top officials Robert Blair and Michael Duffey despite a court order.

What are they hiding?

iPhone : Mitch McConnell doesnt want a fair trial, he wants a fast trial.

iPhone : After repeatedly saying that we would get procedures just like the Clinton impeachment trial, we now see that was false. The proposal that Majority Leader McConnell just released looks more like a cover up than a fair trial.…

TweetDeck : As soon as Senator McConnell offers this resolution, I will be offering amendments to address the many flaws in this deeply unfair proposal and to subpoena the witnesses and documents we have requested.

iPhone : It’s clear McConnell and Trump want to ignore sworn evidence. And they don’t want firsthand witnesses to Trump’s misconduct.

But the American people want a fair trial and they will hold every senator accountable for their votes tomorrow.…

iPhone : Just reading proposed GOP impeachment trial rules, which are ridiculous.

There’s nothing in this resolution that requires hearing witnesses or admitting evidence—which is unlike any trial I’ve ever seen.

iPhone : I’m no stranger to working 12 hour days, but let’s be clear: Leader McConnell shouldn’t try to rush the process and hide the truth from the American people. We need a fair and open trial with witnesses and relevant documents.

TweetDeck : Under this resolution, Senator McConnell is saying he doesn’t want to hear any of the existing evidence, and he doesn’t want to hear any new evidence.

A trial with no evidence—no existing record, no witnesses, no documents—isn’t a trial at all.

It’s a cover up.

Twitter Web App : After reading his resolution, it’s clear Sen. McConnell is hell-bent on making it much more difficult to get witnesses & documents and intent on rushing the trial through

On something as important as impeachment—Sen. McConnell’s resolution is nothing short of a national disgrace

Twitter Media Studio : Trials have witnesses and documents.

Cover-ups don’t.

These individuals must testify in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump.

Twitter Web App : President Trump:

You keep saying you did nothing wrong.

If you really believe that: Let your men testify. Release the emails. Let the truth come out!…

Twitter Web App : Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a man of courage and character, who inspired and transformed our nation.

On #MLKDay we honor and celebrate his legacy.

Today and every day we are committed to creating a more just and equal nation for all Americans.

TweetDeck : We have to do all we can to stop the fires in Australia.

I’m so proud of everyone working to save families, save animals, and save the environment.

We can’t wait any longer to take action to fight the climate crisis.…

iPhone : We have to let Republicans know:

135 million Americans with pre-existing conditions - including more than half the families in Michigan - cant afford to lose their health care.

My friend Peter Morley joins me to discuss how to #ProtectOurCare!

iPhone : Rural communities too often struggle to find quality, affordable health care. If Pres. Trump & the GOP succeed in their lawsuit to undo the ACA, rural hospitals will be harmed & Americans w/pre-existing conditions in rural communities will lose their health care. #ProtectOurCare

iPhone : Is it significant that Mitch McConnell described the oath we will take and omitted its central phrase “impartial justice,” having publicly pledged not to be impartial?

Twitter Media Studio : “The report released by the GAO, an independent, non-partisan, watchdog agency, squarely raises the importance of Mick Mulvaney as a witness.”

Richard Blumenthal lays out why witnesses are crucial to a fair impeachment trial.
