    Some GOP allies of President Donald Trump are looking to the Kavanaugh hearings as a model for what they view as a successful effort to chip away at a potentially damaging witness's credibility.

    WASHINGTON — Ahead of the first public testimony of the impeachment inquiry next week, the White House and key Hill Republicans are discussing a defense of President Donald Trump that is heavy on offense, with a focus on dismissing and discrediting witnesses whose testimony may be damaging to the president.

    “If folks question the motivations and credibility of the president as we go through this, it’s possible that the same standard could apply to them,” said an administration official involved in the process granted anonymity to speak candidly about strategy, who said the approach had been used during past impeachment defenses.
    ================================================== ================================
    I can just imagine the lights in the WH burning late into the night as Trump's aides put together their defense schemes to protect Trump.

    "Him? I hardly knew the guy.'
    Let me ask you a question: How do you propose that Trump handle his defense?

    No, in an open House hearing, these supposed witnesses will be cross examined

    How exactly could they be considered either for simply stating something against Trump? You need more than you or Trump don't like what they say, or even that they are biased against Trump to support either accusation, neither of which should be thrown around against US citizens lightly.

    They want Trump to be stripped of his civil rights.
