Anthrax’s Charlie Benante Slams Republicans for Not Allowing Witnesses in the Trump Impeachment Trial


Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante has called the current impeachment trial of Donald Trump a “sham” after Republicans in the senate successfully voted to block hearing any testimony from witnesses, including former national security adviser John Bolton. The move all but guarantees that Trump will be acquitted of the charges against him, despite overwhelming evidence that he is, indeed, guilty.

“We need another party in this country and maybe this shit wouldn’t happen,” said Benante via social media.

A fan subsequently replied by asking, “[W]hy wouldn’t they call the additional witnesses (dems called 17 and allowed the Reps 0 while not allowing the 17 to be crossed) when they were supposed to during the House investigation? Doesn’t that tell you something?” But Benante wasn’t having it, responding, “Omg!!! The WH blocked them all, I really wish people would start looking elsewhere for information.”
