Pelosi: Potential Trump Acquittal Not Legitimate Without Additional Trial Witnesses

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi conceded the impeachment fight to her Senate counterpart, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Pelosi took nearly a month to do her constitutional duty, transmitting the articles of impeachment to the upper chamber. 


Now that the fate of impeachment is in the hands of the Senate, Speaker Pelosi is still weighing in. Regarding the controversy of additional witnesses, Speaker Pelosi said that these additional testimonies were necessary, or else the impeachment trial in the Senate is not a real trial. Speaker Pelosi even went as far as to say that an acquittal in the Senate without additional witnesses would be illegitimate.

There are valid arguments for having additional witnesses testify, namely John Bolton and Hunter Biden, but Speaker Pelosi truly misses the mark. Her current argument completely undermines her original talking points; she insisted that impeachment was dire to the protection of Democracy and must be rushed through her chamber. 


Speaker Pelosi is in no real position of credibility to talk about additional witnesses, because she herself could have subpoenaed these witnesses. Speaker Pelosi and Rep. Adam Schiff seem to forget that they, indeed, had the power to compel witness testimony. 

This push by Speaker Pelosi for additional witnesses, on top of the 13 in front of her chamber, is completely contradictory. The “master legislator” cannot simultaneously demand additional witnesses, while she put a desperate stamp of urgency on the need for impeachment just a month ago, so much so that she could not find time to carry out her own constitutional duty.
