This is a dumb argument. The Sixth Amendment does not apply to House proceedings.

You can tell because the text of the Sixth Amendment starts "In all criminal prosecutions..."

Republicans are complete shit about the Constitution these days, aren't they?
I can't believe this has to be explained, but drawing up articles of impeachment is not a trial. Trial occurs in the Senate.

Even that portion of the process isn't a criminal prosecution. The Constitution explicitly states that criminal prosecution could *follow* removal.
GOP brain trust legal arguments from the past month:

(1) You can't impeach a duly-elected president.
(2) Testimony is not evidence.
(3) Hearsay is not evidence.
(4) The Sixth Amendment applies to drawing up articles of impeachment.
(5) The president cannot be investigated.
