At a press conference with reporters Friday morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi argued President Trump cannot be acquitted because he hasn't "had a fair trial." Why? Because it's unlikely new witnesses Democrats in the House refused to compel for testimony will be subpoenaed. 

What Pelosi is saying is, of course untrue. If 51 Senators vote to acquit President Trump, he will in fact have been acquitted. In addition and as she learned when she held the articles of impeachment for 33 days, she has no control over the Senate trial or process. 

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham is blasting Democrats for claiming new witnesses are being "blocked." 

Earlier this week, White House attorney Patrick Philbin explained why it is crucial for the Senate to reject a sloppy investigation from the House and deny new witnesses in order to maintain the integrity of the upper chamber.
