Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
After listening to the Dems’ 20+ hours of argument and the rebuttal arguments from @realDonaldTrump, I’ve got lots of questions for the Dems. Like this one: Why did Schiff lie about his contact with the “whistleblower”? More to come!

As always, there is much hilarity in the responses. They ain’t buying it:
But you don’t have any questions for Bolton, or Pompeo, or Trump? You’re the worst senator, and that’s a hard title to earn.
I’ve got questions:
Q1: Why did Trump ask Ukraine to do him a favor – check into Biden, when that was old news & already resolved?
Q2: Why was he ONLY interested in them announcing an investigation?
Q3: Why did he withhold the $ from Ukraine?
Why are we not asking the president why he illegally withheld aide from Ukraine in order to benefit his campaign? #politicalhack
@HawleyMO, I’m sorry, what exactly was the defense? All I’ve heard so far.. Bidens, Bidens, Bidens, oh, they threw in Obama, a lecture on impeachment and all the half truths and selective testimony taken out of context. BUT, I have heard no defense for #trumpIsACorruptLiar
What are you even talking about? Focus on the trial and stop the whataboutism
You’re worried about fiction instead of facts. Typical of republicans these days.
Mostly, we’d like to have some genuine first-hand information about the conversation. Bolton was there. He knows more than anyone we’ve heard from. It sure would be helpful to hear his side of the story.
You are missing the point and just parroting the last few whitehouse points that were written on a map with a sharpie.. the oath needs to be replaced. New idea attach 50k Volts to each bollock and swear on that instead. If you lie you get a shock .. how to sort out politicians
Oh, FFS. This isn’t hard. Come to Kansas City and let your constituents ask questions of you, Senator. I’d say more to come, but you only show up on Fox News.
Have you tried using a bank of microphones as bait?
Call the witnesses; produce the documents. We deserve to know the whole truth. Doesn’t sound to me like Schiff did have contact. But does it matter? The whistleblower was just a tip; the facts have supported those claims.
@HawleyMO, where you sitting in on the trial? Do they have a little box in the senate room that the impeachment trial is playing on while Hannity gives his views? I’m thinking you didn’t see the first half of the trial. IGNORANCE is no excuse for the law!!!!
That would be funny if there actually was a little senators’ table.
Why did @realDonaldTrump lie about knowing Parnas? Why did @realDonaldTrump say to “take her out” about Yavonovitch? And why was the State Dept worried about her safety when they wisked her out Ukraine in the middle of the night?
This is performance art right? Like a bad Andy Kauffman/Tony Clifton thing. There is no way you could be this craven and devoid of integrity.
Tony Clifton had a better haircut.
Knock yourself out. By the way, Americans want to hear from John Bolton.
More to come = waiting for #MoscowMitch to tell me what to say.
Missouri deserves so much better. Impeach and Remove.
Better question, what is trump hiding?
I have a question… who is the hackiest hack, you or @SenJoniErnst?
Let Bolton Speak
Yes, and what is the current market price of tea in China?
Call the witnesses. Produce the documents.
Do you have any questions about the President illegally impounding military aid to a vulnerable ally to coerce them into announcing a fake investigation to interfere in our elections on his behalf?
Why don’t you care about Trump’s abuse, betrayal, and corruption? #DoYourJob
How about, “Why did #ImpeachedForever #FakePresident think it was ok to bully a foreign government desperate for funds already allocated by congress, and then lie about it?” The good thing is that you are actually young enough to find another job when you are voted out of office.
Let’s call this exactly what it is: a cover-up.
What a ridiculously fraudulent partisan sham whitewash cover-up being executed by Trump and GOP.
Nobody believes you, Joshie. You’ve lied to us too many times.
#HucksterHawley who wants to be president in 2024 panders to the Trump base keeping their conspiracies and hocum alive. #GOPCorruptionOverCountry
You are a disgusting excuse for an American. You do not deserve the job of Senator. You should resign in shame.
You took an oath to defend the Constitution, and now when your defense is needed, you join the assault on our most sacred document. Why don’t you care what trump did?
Distract. Distract. Distract. Flashing objects at your base isn’t respectful. Cluttering the discussion can only hurt your cause. Schiff isn’t being impeached. Trump is. Lead or leave. And, stop having high school sophomores managing your messaging.
Not high school sophomores, a middle school dance decorating committee (volunteer). High school sophomores would be doing a much better job.
Great….now, how about you answer some questions for your constituents? You clearly have the time judging by your appearances on Fox News and your tweets yet we never get a response.
Why would you vote not to see witnesses when 70% of Americans would like to see testimony?
You’re lying and it the whistleblower is irrelevant. The Biden’s are irrelevant. The only thing that matters here is what Trump did and he’s guilty. If you don’t vote to remove, I hope you’ll be a one term senator.
He’ll have all the money he needs in 2024.
Where’s your moral compass? It seems to be MIA.
I can’t believe there are enough gullible voters here for you to have a job. You’re a liar and a shill for your dear leader.
Deflection is such a played out tactic, Josh – is your case THAT weak?
Have you noticed @RoyBlunt is not tweeting? Maybe he’s at least trying to appear impartial.
You should just stop. It’s making you look dumb.
Dude, you like the tweaker who steals tools out of your garage and then comes back to help you look for it…shameless.
You’re a special kind of stupid, aren’t you? #RemoveandIndictTrumpNOW
You’re such a fucking liar it isn’t even funny.
