Trump Quickly Rejects Impeachment Managers' Request for Testimony at His Second Impeachment Hearing Trial
He refuses to defend the allegations against him
Today, the House impeachment managers requested Donald Trump testify at his upcoming Senate impeachment trial, his second one, in a dramatic move to try to get the former president on the record about his conduct surrounding the January 6 riots at the Capitol.
But Trump's legal team quickly responded by rejecting the invitation in a terse response to the House impeachment team, putting the decision back on the Democrats over whether to try to compel Trump's testimony with a subpoena.
Lead impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin sent a letter to Trump's attorney Thursday requesting that Trump testify before or during the upcoming impeachment trial, which begins on Feb. 9, arguing that his testimony was needed after he disputed the House's allegations that he incited the insurrection at the Capitol.
