Rep. John Ratcliffe: House Democrats Didn’t Do Their Job

REP. JOHN RATCLIFFE: I think what all the senators in there agree is that regardless of what happened over here, House Democrats didn’t do their job over there. On December 18th, we warned them. We stood on the floor of the House and said, “There isn’t enough evidence and testimony to impeach this President,” but they were in a hurry to do that. We told them Senate Democrats aren’t going to agree with you, and that’s proven to be the case. Seventeen witnesses called over here—could have been 117 witnesses. The number of witnesses available to the House Democrats was the exact number that the House Democrats wanted to call over in the House. They didn’t do that.
