Did Trump's lawyers make the point that there should be testimony from first hand witnesses?

    Indirectly, yes. But that doesn't matter. Making points doesn't matter. Everyone's mind is already made up. Make points. Don't make points. It makes no difference. Every Senator in that room has already knows how they're going to vote and have known since before the trial started.

      So true, I just hate the hypocrisy of people like Collins pretending she won't simply vote Party Line again.

    The whistleblower should call their bluff and say he/she will testify, they would be handing out toilet paper to the GOP Senators

    Any other testimony is hearsay and is generally not admitted in a trial. The real first hand testimony that Schiff and Nadler did not allow would have been from the whistleblower. None of this would have happened without him and it is important to know just how credible he is. Why wouldn't Schiff allow him to be questioned?

      To follow through, they'd only be damning Trump.  They know that.  So they play these rhetorical games.

      They said there was no firsthand information while they withheld firsthand information.

    I hope so, but I don't think that was their intention.

      It definitely was not there intention. But they did make a case for witnesses by saying the case was weak while they withheld important information to the case. Most likely Trump is exonerated and then all the pertinent information gets leaked out proving he should have been impeached.

      What kind of Trial has no witnesses? The system is so corrupt. This is just more reality TV.
