Impeachment Supervisor Invitations Trump to Testify ‘Underneath Oath’ – and Explains Penalties if He Refuses

US MP Jaime Raskin, the impeachment manager of the Democratic Leadership House, sent a letter to President Donald Trump on Thursday asking him to testify during his Senate trial and explaining the consequences if he refuses.

In the letter, Trump said he “attempted to question critical facts without resisting clear and overwhelming evidence of your breach of the Constitution.”

“In view of your dispute with these allegations of fact, I would like to invite you to take an oath testimony to your conduct on January 6, 2021 before or during the impeachment proceedings in the Senate. We suggest that you (of course) submit your testimony including cross-examination) on Monday, February 8th, 2021 and by Thursday, February 11th, 2021 at the latest. We would be happy to arrange such a testimony at a mutually convenient time and location. “

Raskin, senior whip of the House Democratic Caucus, then tells Trump what will happen if he refuses: It will incriminate him very badly and could convince more senators to vote for condemnation.

“If you decline this invitation, we reserve all rights, including the right to determine in court that your refusal to testify had a major negative impact on your actions (and inaction) on January 6, 2021.”
