Schumer Wants Trump Staff To Testify At Senate Trial

Roll Call reports:

In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer indicated he’s looking for a full hearing of the charges against Trump when it takes up impeachment next year after the Senate’s holiday break.

Schumer wants to call acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, former national security adviser John Bolton, senior Mulvaney adviser Robert Blair and Michael Duffey, a political appointee at the Office of Management and Budget who oversaw the process for releasing foreign aid funds.

“I expect some of my Republican colleagues when they see this letter will say ‘That’s fair.’ They don’t want to be a part of a coverup,” Schumer told CNN Monday morning.
