Thursday, the Pelosi assigned House impeachment managers formally called for President Trump to testify under oath for the Senate impeachment trial that begins next week.
Lead impeachment Manager Jamie Raskin wrote to Trump and his legal team accusing him of denying irrefutable facts about his role in the January 6th Capitol riot.
“You have thus attempted to put critical facts at issue notwithstanding the clear and overwhelming evidence of your constitutional offense,” Raskin writes.
“In light of your disputing these factual allegations, I write to invite you to provide testimony under oath, either before or during the Senate impeachment trial, concerning your conduct on January 6, 2021,” he adds.
The legal team of former President Trump has now responded with the following letter.
“Your letter only confirms what is known to everyone: you cannot prove your allegations against the 45th President of the United States, who is now a private citizen,” David Schoen writes.
