Senator Durbin pushes back on McConnell’s witness stance

(CNN) WASHINGTON, D.C. – “It would say to me that the president and his team could find no witness who will exonerate him from his statements and conduct that led to this impeachment. If he has a witness, if he has a document for goodness sake why wouldn’t he produce it. What we’re saying is trial gives him that opportunity to bring his witnesses forward. The House had 17 witnesses that created the impeachment articles that will likely be sent to the senate this week. Is the president unable to find one person to stand by his version of the facts?”
