John Kelly Calls Out Republicans For Refusing To Allow Witnesses: ‘This Is Half A Trial’
Former White House chief of staff John Kelly spoke out against Senators who have voted against having witnesses at Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
According to NJ.com, Kelly said that having no witnesses at the impeachment trial should be considered “half a trial.”
“In my view, they kind of leave themselves open to a lot of criticism,” Kelly said in an interview. “It seems it was half a trial.”
Kelly says he believes new revelations from Bolton’s upcoming book that Trump played a central role in a campaign to pressure Ukraine to announce an investigation into the Bidens.
“If I was advising the United States Senate, I would say, ‘If you don’t respond to 75 percent of the American voters and have witnesses, it’s a job only half done,” he added. “You open yourself up forever as a Senate that shirks its responsibilities.”
