STOP enabling McConnell disinformation:
Per Rules Art VII, Roberts "shall direct all the forms of proceedings while the Senate is sitting for the purpose of trying an impeachment & all forms during the trial not otherwise specially provided for"
• Motion to Dismiss is “not provided for” in the Senate Trial Rules.
• The Constitution requires a “trial.”
Rules➔ senate.gov/artandhistory/…
• Senate trial rules empower the House to “conduct the impeachment.”
• Senate trial rules don’t bar the House from calling witnesses.
• Senate trial rules can’t be amended with only 51 votes.
CALL Roberts & demand he rule to allow witnesses as Trump agrees to here.
SCOTUS: 202-479-3000
Hon. Chief Justice Roberts
U.S. Supreme Court
1st Street N.E.
Washington, DC 20543
McConnell's false narrative –
The Constitution requires a "trial" & says the House represents "the people." The House would be prejudiced if Presiding Officer Roberts allows a Motion to Dismiss, which is NOT in the rules & skirts a trial.
“Roberts Under Pressure From Both Sides in Witness Fight”
Will he sit there like a Trump toady??

CNN Poll, 1/20/20 69% – Upcoming trial should have testimony from new witnesses (48% of Republicans)
