If the Senate decides to consider new impeachment trial witnesses and documents next week, Sen. Josh Hawley plans to try and force votes on everyone from Adam Schiff to Joe Biden.
The Missouri Republican is preparing to file subpoena requests for witnesses and documents that Democrats and Republicans alike won't want to vote on. Hawley's strategy harmonizes with plans from GOP Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky to force votes to hear from Hunter Biden, the former vice president's son who was on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma

My new Senator is turning out to be a real winner.
I seriously think they could have rested their case after yesterdays testimony
Now this is how you step up to the plate.
Subpoenas = Delay
Let the defense make their case, ask questions, then vote to dismiss.
I just watched Chuck Todd interview Senator Mike Braun and was stunned.
Braun nodded agreement when Todd stated that Trump actually did what the dems accuse him of.
And Braun agreed that Trump stepped over the line during the phone call and this impeachment effort should make him more cautious in the future.
Looks like Trump’s defense team needs to check their own side.
Braun came off as spineless, brainless, gutless. There is more firmness in a wet noodle than him.
No damn it shut this BS down. Witnesses are a trap.
Right, Burgess, and there's no evidence that Trump used his position as President to benefit his own work, either. Why didn't you add that, as well?
IMHO this impeachment charade has a strong component of the Democrat talking points that the Senate colluded and covered up Trumps crimes. They hope to take the Senate in the next election. Actually having witnesses doesnt work for them for multiple reasons.
So I think the witness thing is all talk.
Who really believes Hunter would show up and lastly, answer questions? I don’t.

I have seen Braun talk the same schiff on Fox. He seems like a dick.
Maybe this nutless wonder should remember who brought him to the party.
I still believe there will be no witnesses.
Both sides have people they want to protect. Therefore there will be none.
This is signaling the RATS that if you want witnesses you better think twice. Finally they are playing HARD BALL! at least I hope they are!
Save this for the Senate Judiciary committee after dismissal on Tuesday.
Totally agree with you.
“I seriously think they could have rested their case after yesterdays testimony”
Who really believes Hunter would show up and lastly, answer questions? I dont.
Correct. This is EXACTLY why he should have been subpoenaed three months ago by the GOP controlled Senate. Then Biden Jr. would have either taken the 5th or not shown up. Thus validating the concerns POTUS had on the phone call. Instead, the GOP did nothing in support of POTUS (as always) and here we are.
I would also add to the list John Kerry and Nancy Pelosi, since both their children worked for Burisma. I would also call on Whitey Bulger’s son who also sat on the board.
Yes. Makes most sense.
It’s all beltway theater. The GOP want this over. There will be no witnesses.
