Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar would not outright agree with House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi that if there are no witness, it won’t be a genuine acquittal of President Trump. 

“I’m not giving up on no witnesses. We still have another day of questions,” she told CNN’s Dana Bash today.

Bash pushed Klobuchar again to hypothetically say if she would agree. Klobuchar hedged: “Well, no I don’t think it will be—It will not be a fair trial, I’ll just leave it at that.”

“I don’t think it’s a fair trial, you can’t have a fair result. Why don’t we see what happens first,” Klobuchar said.

Klobuchar also wouldn’t pre-judge if Democrats played their hand well for impeachment trial, when asked by Bash if there was anything Democrats in the House or Senate could have done differently to change the outcome. 

“I am always good at looking in the rear view mirror, I’ll do that when it’s done. We are not done yet. I’m right in the middle of this,” she said.

Klobuchar called the request from Jay Sekulow, one of Trump’s attorneys, to hear from both Biden’s, House manager Adam Schiff and the whistleblower a threat.
