There is no reason the Democrats can't subpoena Trump to testify at his Senate trial next week. Makes you wonder if they are cowards or just plain stupid. They didn't subpoena him during the first impeachment because he was a sitting president. What's the excuse this time around? Dems have still not obtained Trump's taxes even though courts have determined that they could get access.
Democrats are wasting time impeaching Trump a second with no chance of him getting convicted during the Senate trial. They should be prosecuting him for his acts of treason. He incited an insurrection against the United States on January 6th. That is a crime. Those who actually attacked the Capitol many were charged with federal crimes. Why not Trump.
...Democrats should absolutely force Trump to testify. First, he is finally out of office, depriving him of his favorite defense. And while his defense rests largely upon the argument that it's unconstitutional to convict a former president in an impeachment trial, that doesn't mean the Senate can't demand that he appear.
