Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), the lead impeachment manager, said he alone made the decision not to press for new witness testimony, even after the impeachment managers had forced the Senate to vote to allow that very thing, The Hill reports.
Raskin added that he had no contact with President Biden, Vice President Harris or anyone else in the White House before the impeachment managers agreed to a deal with Trump’s defense allowing a new statement to be entered into the record, but no new witness depositions.
Said Raskin: “I made the call. So you want to blame somebody it’s me.”
