Sen. John Kennedy: Dems Are Giving Trump 'A Fair And Impartial Firing Squad'

Excerpt:

(CNSNews.com) - The always-colorful Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana is among the Republicans who say Democrats are being unfair to President Trump by limiting the witnesses they may call and by selectively leaking portions of the testimony they've heard privately, before releasing transcripts pertaining to Trump's Ukraine dealings.

Public hearings in the impeachment inquiry begin Wednesday, and Kennedy said he'll be listening to what transpires in the House intelligence committee:

"If you try to assess how a trial is going for a defendant, you don't just listen to the lawyers' opening statements and you don't just read the transcript," Kennedy told CBS's "Face the Nation."

"You sit there and listen to all the testimony, the cross-examination, and the context. And I think that Speaker Pelosi's decision and Adam Schiff's decision to prevent the Republicans from calling their own witnesses in the live testimony is just doubling down on stupid.

"The American people, I think, are going look at this and go, I get it. They're going to give the president a fair and impartial firing squad. And that's not due process."

Kennedy outlined two possible scenarios in his conversation with CBS's Margaret Brennan:

Number one, the president asked for an investigation of a political rival. Number two, the president asked for an investigation of possible corruption by someone who happens to be a political rival.

The latter would be in the national interest. The former would be in the president's parochial interests and would be over the line.

I think this case is going to come down to the president's intent, his motive. Did he have a culpable state of mind? For me, Margaret, there are only two relevant questions that need to be answered. Why did the president ask for an investigation? And, number two -- and this is inextricably linked to the first question -- what did Mr. Hunter Biden do for the money?

Brennan asked Kennedy if "there is something you could hear that could potentially persuade you to vote for (Trump's) removal?"

Well, I can't answer that, Margaret, because that encompasses all possible scenarios," Kennedy said. "That's like asking me if I didn't go fishing Saturday, how many fish will I have caught?

Wonderfully stated. The Dem's are in fact doubling down on stupid, but that's just like them isn't it?

I love this guy, Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana. Reminds me of my favorite uncle (who died years ago.) Colorful, sure. Maybe even "colloquial". But straight to the point.
