Rep. Ratcliffe: Lack of Fairness and Due Process Will SHOCK Senators
 
Pro-Trump Representative John Ratcliffe said recently that Senators are going to be "surprised" at the lack of fairness and due process that House Democrats failed provided during the impeachment hearings.

According to Fox News:

"There isn't a witness that can be called that can fix this process. There isn't a witness on either side that you can call that can inject fairness and due process into a process that had none," he told Smith.

"I think one of the things your listeners are going to hear this week is a comparison of what happened, the disparity in the way President Clinton and President Nixon were treated during their impeachment inquiries as opposed to President Trump," he remarked. "The Nixon and Clinton lawyers were allowed to participate every single day from the beginning to the end. They were allowed to review evidence, suggest evidence, call witnesses and cross-examine witnesses."

"By comparison, President Trump -- during his 78-day impeachment inquiry -- his lawyers were forbidden from participating for this first 71 of a 78-day process," Ratcliffe continued. "Not allowed to call witnesses, cross-examine witnesses, be there for the presentation or review of evidence."

"That is a lack of due process and fairness that I think all senators, Republican and Democrat, are going to be surprised to learn," he stated. "I think, as a result of that, they were not going to want to hear any witnesses because the Senate isn't going to be able to fix what happened in the House."

Ratcliffe also pointed to the lack of a constitutional argument by Democrats stating that it is simply because they do not have one.
