US President Donald Trump’s expected acquittal in his impeachment trial will be a hollow victory if the trial does not call any witnesses, top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer said Friday.
“This country is headed towards the greatest cover-up since Watergate,” Schumer said ahead of what could be the final day of the historic hearings.
“If my Republican colleagues refuse to consider witnesses and documents in this trial, the president’s acquittal will be meaningless. Because it will be the result of a sham trial.”
