Remember when the House impeachment managers wanted to call witnesses, and then they changed their mind? They wanted you to think it was over a phone conversation that some unknown Republican Congresswoman said she heard about that concerned Republican House minority leader Kevin McCarthy talking to then-President Trump during the riot on January 6. That was a lie as is everything that comes from Democrats without fail.
The real problem for the Democrats came about when Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said the first witness he would call would be House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and the first questions he would ask her would be what did she know and when did she know it? The kinds of questions the senator from South Carolina would ask would have destroyed the Democrats’ impeachment case because thanks to the censorship of their friends in the mainstream news media and the tech tyrants in social media censoring any information that didn’t align with the lies and gaslighting that the Democrats were doing would come as a shock to millions of Americans.
NEW: Source with Trump legal team says any move by Dems to call witnesses would get "real ugly, real quick."
"The first two witnesses that we would call would be Nancy Pelosi and Muriel Bowser And they can explain why they rejected additional security and national guard help."

At that point, the Senate Democrats held a lil chat with the House managers and told them to back down from the offer and agree to no witnesses to be able to get the hearsay statement they had from the Congresswoman into the record.
But in the end, they were afraid of something else coming out that they just couldn’t allow the American people to know about at that stage of the game.
Let me just start off by pointing out how despicable the Democrats are for what they did during the impeachment process. They lied, they invented information, they altered documents, and they withheld exculpatory evidence. Had they been in a real courtroom they not only would have been disbarred but they would have faced criminal charges and possibly sent to prison with large fines on top of it. The Left and the Democrats are going around now with the talking point that it’s not a court of law and it’s different because it’s political. Yes, it’s not an actual court of law, and yes, it is a political process, but the decorum of a court atmosphere is still expected. The American people don’t expect their elected officials to fake a trial against an innocent man by doctoring information, manufacturing evidence, and withholding exculpatory information which is exactly what the Democrats House managers did.
The new Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer assured America that there would be a trial and that it would be “full and fair.” The house managers provided nothing of the sort. It was reminiscent of an old Soviet Union rigged trial.
The House managers presented their case as if Trump was inciting people to riot and then he didn’t do anything to stop it, which is completely backward from what really happened.
The Democrats then impeached President Trump but it wasn’t really an impeachment in the sense that the Founding Fathers gave us in our Constitution. The Democrats in the House didn’t hold a single hearing and they didn’t call a single witness. What’s worse is they didn’t allow the President to defend himself. They just talked about it for days then voted to impeach. It was all a rush job.
The reason the House managers changed their mind on calling witnesses is that they didn’t want the truth to get out about why the entire impeachment process was a sham. They didn’t want the American people watching the impeachment show to learn that there is far more evidence that shows Donald Trump did not incite the January 6 riot and that he most certainly did take action to stop it, but the Democrats thwarted his efforts. You can throw in the mainstream news media and the social media tech tyrants as well because as it turns out they censored the president’s speech by deleting tweets and two videos he made asking for people to stop the violence, to go home, and to respect law enforcement.
The Democrats didn’t want the American people to know that for days before the January 6 riot President Trump offered up to 10,000 National Guard troops to protect the Capitol, and every offer was rebuked every time. The House Sgt at Arms declined their help and he reports directly to the Speaker, Nancy Pelosi. The Sgt at Arms needs to be asked if Pelosi gave him orders to not allow the National Guard to move in for protection and if not, then why did he turn them down? We know the Capitol police chief said he asked for help and was turned down.
“We also know that in January, but also throughout the summer, that the president was very vocal in making sure that we had plenty of National Guard, plenty of additional support because he supports our rule of law and supports our law enforcement and offered additional help,” Meadows told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo.
“Even in January, that was a given, as many as 10,000 National Guard troops were told to be on the ready by the Secretary of Defense,” Meadows said. “That was a direct order from President Trump and yet here is what we see … all kinds of blame going around but yet not a whole lot of accountability.”
“That accountability needs to rest where it ultimately should be and that’s on Capitol Hill” Meadows added.

The acting secretary of defense, Christopher Miller, was at the White House with his chief of staff, Kash Patel. They were meeting with President Trump on “an Iran issue,” Miller told me. But then the conversation switched gears. The president, Miller recalled, asked how many troops the Pentagon planned to turn out the following day. “We’re like, ‘We’re going to provide any National Guard support that the District requests,’” Miller responded. “And [Trump] goes, ‘You’re going to need 10,000 people.’ No, I’m not talking bullshit. He said that. And we’re like, ‘Maybe. But you know, someone’s going to have to ask for it.’” At that point Miller remembered the president telling him, “‘You do what you need to do. You do what you need to do.’ He said, ‘You’re going to need 10,000.’ That’s what he said. Swear to God.”
As it happened, Miller, on January 4 approved the authorization to give National Guard support if it was asked for January 5th and 6th. But they had to ask for it because that’s the law. In fact, when they didn’t ask for support, Trump went to great lengths to offer them support, and they turned him down.
That’s why what the Trump defense team along with Senators Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham said was important to understand. They let the cat out of the bag that neither Speaker Pelosi nor DC Mayor Muriel Bowser asked for the additional support beforehand, and you didn’t think the Democrats would admit that Trump offered the help, do you? Had either one accepted Trump’s offer for 10,000 National Guard troops for support there wouldn’t have been a riot and more-than-likely nobody would have died. I think a riot is exactly what the Democrats wanted so that they could attack Republicans as all being domestic terrorists the way they have been since January 6.
