Trump Dismisses House Impeachment Managers’ Request That He Testify

Former President Donald Trump spurned a request from House impeachment managers that he testify next week as part of the Senate trial on a charge that he incited an insurrection last month at the U.S. Capitol.

Trump adviser Jason Miller said Thursday that “the president will not testify in an unconstitutional proceeding.” In a letter to Mr. Raskin, Trump lawyers Bruce Castor and David Schoen called the invitation to testify a “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,” they wrote. Republican lawmakers quickly rejected the request, and even some Democrats said it would be a bad idea to hear from the former president. “It’s obviously a political ploy on their part,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.).
