During a Friday press conference, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer protested the fact that Republicans have enough votes to stop additional witnesses from appearing at the impeachment trial.
But he didn’t just stop there.
Later in the conference, Schumer was asked by a reporter if “voters should make this decision” on whether or not to remove President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
He answered that the election might not be “fair” because Trump could be actively rigging the election.
“If this President of the United States is interfering in the elections, the election may not have a fair result,” Schumer responded to the question. “The very charge goes to the fairness of our elections and very few people doubt that he would do it again, and again, and again. He’s already tried several times.”

The last instance of Democrats trying to trap Trump in the charge of rigging the presidential election resulted in a two-year fiasco by a special counsel headed up by Robert Mueller.
Despite various FBI raids on campaign workers and dozens upon dozens of witness interviews, the investigation resulted in Trump being exonerated from the charge of “collusion” with Russia.
It is expected that early next week, the months-long impeachment saga over the controversial call between Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky will come to a close with the GOP securing an acquittal vote.
