     No more documents or witnesses are needed if they say they have enough to impeach.  President Trump’s lawyer Jay Sekulow on Wednesday questioned why Democrats need more documents and witness testimony when they already have enough information to present hour upon hour of evidence.  “We just went through two and a half hours of laying out their case to go with the 11 hours laying out their case last night. Unless he’s making it up, it seems like he’s got a lot of information, so proceed with your case,” Sekulow, speaking during an afternoon break in the proceedings, said about Rep. Adam Schiff and the Democrats’ lengthy and ongoing recitation of their case against Trump. “The more they do this two-and-a-half hour events at a time, it undercuts their entire argument” that they need the evidence and witnesses the White House has refused to provide and Senate Republicans have so far declined to ask for.

     Sekulow also defended Trump’s comments earlier in Davos, Switzerland, when he appeared to confirm that the White House was withholding evidence. “We’re doing very well,” he told reporters before leaving the World Economic Forum, when asked about the trial. “Honestly, we have all the material. They don’t have the material.” Sekulow said that the administration was within its constitutional rights to withhold documents. 

     “First of all, this idea — I think what [Rep.] Jerry Nadler said, what’d he call it executive privilege and other nonsense. These are privileges recognized by the Supreme Court of the United States that come out of the United States Constitution. This isn’t nonsense. This is really what the Constitution’s about,” Sekulow said.
