House Impeachment Managers Sent the Most Sweetly Savage Note to Trump Calling for Him to Testify at His Impeachment Trial

On January 13, the House of Representatives impeached then-President Donald Trump for a historic second time, citing his constant lies about the integrity of the 2020 election—lies which led a mob of pro-Trump extremists to storm the United States Capitol in a deadly failed insurrection.

The second impeachment trial of Donald Trump will begin in the Senate next week.


As the House impeachment managers prepare, head impeachment manager Congressmen Jamie Raskin (R-MD) issued a letter to the former President requesting that he testify at the trial.

The letter made its request in a cordial but brutal tone, with Raskin writing:

"You have thus attempted to put critical facts at issue notwithstanding the clear and overwhelming evidence of your constitutional offense. In light of your disputing these factual allegations, I write to invite you to provide testimony under oath, either before or during the Senate impeachment trial, concerning your conduct on January 6, 2021."

It continued, sardonically reminding Trump that he is no longer President:

"Presidents Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton both provided testimony while in office—and the Supreme Court held just last year that you were not immune from legal process while serving as President—so there is no doubt that you can testify in these proceedings. Indeed, whereas a sitting President might raise concerns about distraction from their official duties, that concern is obviously inapplicable here."

The internet cackled at Raskin's trolling of the former President—and speculated on whether Trump would comply with the request.







The President's defense team soon responded.

They wrote in part:

"We are in receipt of your latest public relations stunt. ... Your letter only confirms what is known to everyone: you cannot prove your allegations against the 45th President of the United States, who is now a private citizen."

The former President's critics eagerly mocked his response.



Trump eagerly lied thousands of times throughout the course of his term, so it's understandable that there's hesitation from his legal team to put him under oath.

Whether or not we're parents, we understand that all children are unique and developing at slightly different rates. Their interests in school are different, some are more aligned with sports or a musical instrument, and their bodies are all a little different.

Though these are reasonable observations, we have to be careful about how we address these differences with children, so that we don't create negative core memories with them and so we are sensitive to their potential insecurities.
