Ex president in exile in Florida, Donald what’s his name, refuses to testify in what his spokesman Jason Miller terms as the the unconstitutional impeachment trial against him in the Senate. Heck, he could at least come in and plead the fifth.
“The President will not testify in an unconstitutional proceeding,” Trump spokesman Jason Miller said.
The statement from Miller came shortly after Trump’s defense team responded to a call from Rep. Jamie B. Raskin (D-Md.) for the former president to testify and accused Democrats of waging a “public relations stunt.”
“As you certainly know, there is no such thing as a negative interference in this unconstitutional proceeding,” Trump lawyers Bruce L. Castor Jr. and David Schoen said in a letter to Raskin. “Your letter only confirms what is known to everyone: you cannot prove your allegations against the 45th President of the United States, who is now a private citizen.”
While Castor and Schoen did not explicitly say in their letter that Trump will not testify, they were dismissive of Democrats’ efforts.
“The use of our Constitution to bring a purported impeachment proceeding is much too serious to try to play these games,” they said.
Coulda been a good show.
