Democrats and Republicans knocked heads Sunday over the need to call witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump — a question that could face a critical vote as soon as this week.
“It looks like they’re asking the Senate to go be special counsel, go search, go seek out. That’s not really the task of the Senate,” Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) said on ABC News’ “This Week.” “The task of the Senate is to hear the trial.”
Lankford suggested that the demand for witness testimony is just a Democratic ploy to slow the process to a crawl as the GOP seeks a speedy resolution.
“They wanted to move as fast as possible, and now they want to slow down the trial as much as possible in the Senate,” he said. “That’s just a very odd political strategy for them more than a fact-finding strategy.”
“I’m not going to vote to approve witnesses because the House Democrats have had lots of witnesses,” the Arkansas lawmaker said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
