As my RedState colleague Streiff wrote Tuesday, Democrats utterly beclowned themselves on the first day of President Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate by demanding White House Counsel Pat Cipollone step down as Trump’s attorney because he was, in their words, a “fact witness.”

Alleging they had “evidence” that Cipollone was a “fact witness to numerous critical events related to the president’s scheme”, House impeachment managers including House Intel Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA), House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and others wrote a letter to Cipollone stating “we write to notify you that evidence received by the House of Representatives during its impeachment inquiry indicates that you are a material witness” to the impeachment articles against Trump:

“You must disclose all facts and information as to which you have first-hand knowledge that will be at issue in connection with evidence you present or arguments you make in your role as the President’s legal advocate so that the Senate and Chief Justice can be apprised of any potential ethical issues, conflicts or biases,” they wrote.

The managers then outlined Cipollone’s alleged connection to both articles of impeachment — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

“Evidence indicates that, at a minimum, you have detailed knowledge of the facts regarding the first Article and played an instrumental role in the conduct charged in the second Article,” they wrote.

They went on to say that ethical rules generally “preclude” a lawyer from acting as an advocate in a trial if he or she is also a witness.

Read the full letter below:

It was a predictable political stunt, considering the sham nature of the impeachment inquiry proceedings they conducted against President Trump for four months starting in September.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who has been more than happy to remind House Democrats that they are no longer running the impeachment show, torched Democrats over their suggestion that Cipollone step aside as Trump’s attorney.

In a statement, which he posted on Twitter in a series of tweets yesterday, Cruz laid out the left’s constitutionally flawed arguments:

With all that in mind, Cruz suggests that it’s Adam Schiff himself who should be disqualified and instead called as a fact witness:

In other words: Democrats, if you want to play this “fact witness” game, you will lose. Bigly.
