Sen. Mike Lee said Saturday that there’s no need to call witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump because it won’t make a difference in the outcome.

“I know there are additional people who the Democrats think would be helpful for us to hear from, but that isn’t the question,” said Lee on Fox News. “The question is whether they would make a difference.”

Lee pushed back against claims by House Democrats that the White House obstructed their attempts to get documents and hear from witnesses. 

“Their attempt in the House of Representatives was half-baked and without authority. Had they really wanted to get at it, they could have done it and the White House would have fully cooperated had they gone through the proper steps,” he said.

“In any event they’ve got more than enough evidence on which we could, should and will make a decision in this case. What this shows is that President Trump didn’t do anything wrong here,” Lee continued, adding he was sure President Trump would be acquitted when it comes up for a vote next week.
