Rep. Stefanik: It’s Because Of Their Weak Case That Dems Call For Additional Witnesses

REP. ELISE STEFANIK: I expect that they are going to respond to all of the accusations from Adam Schiff and other Democratic floor managers. I think they are going to pick apart the case and, I think as you saw on the House side when we had the open hearings, Republican members were able to bring the truth and bring facts forward. So some of the questions that I asked really focused on do any of the witnesses have direct evidence of impeachable offenses, high crimes and misdemeanors, treason, or bribery and every single witness I asked that question said, 'no.' Those are important questions to ask and as Adam Schiff is playing those videos, they're not showing the context of some of the Republican key questions in those open testimonies.
