Posted on February 19, 2021 Impeachment Share: FSFP President John Bonifaz recently appeared on WPFW Radio to discuss the impeachment trial of former President Trump and areas of inquiry with unanswered questions after the Senate refused to call witnesses at the trial. WPFW’s Monday Morning QB · Why No Impeachment Witnesses? “Trials require witnesses in addition to all the powerful evidence that the House impeachment managers presented, with respect to video, audio, news reports, and then one stipulated statement. Witnesses are necessary to address unanswered questions that cannot be addressed by those other pieces of evidence,” said Bonifaz. During the course of the trial, Free Speech For People and a coalition of public interest organizations issued a letter to Senate President Pro Tempore Patrick Leahy, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and Representative Jamie Raskin, the House’s lead impeachment manager, as well as the House’s other eight impeachment managers, calling for live witness testimony in President Trump’s second Senate impeachment trial. “The consequences…provide a precedent now for any future Donald Trump-like character to look at this history and to think they too can get away with this lawless action – this kind of violent insurrection that Donald Trump incited,” said Bonifaz.
