Mehdi Hasan: The Impeachment Trial Has Been a Farce Since Day One Filled with GOP Lies
At the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told fellow Republican senators in a private meeting Tuesday that he does not yet have enough votes to block Democrats from calling impeachment witnesses. Democrats have pushed for former national security adviser John Bolton to testify. On Sunday night, The New York Times published details about a draft of Bolton's forthcoming book, in which he claims Trump personally told him in August he wanted to maintain a freeze on $391 million in military aid to Ukraine until Ukraine turned over materials related to former Vice President Joe Biden. On Tuesday, Trump's defense team wrapped up their opening arguments. We speak with Mehdi Hasan, senior columnist at The Intercept and host of "UpFront" on Al Jazeera English. John Bolton's role in the impeachment trial is "hugely ironic, because we've always known that John Bolton wanted regime change around the world; I just didn't realize he wanted regime change in Washington, D.C.," Hasan says.
