The realities of the Salem witch trials, in which 14 women and six men were killed, were brutal and unforgiving. But to hear President Trump’s personal attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani tell it, the witchcraft proceedings employed a higher standard of due process than the impeachment inquiry into Trump.
“Even Salem witch trials didn’t use anonymous testimony,” Giuliani wrote on Twitter on Tuesday, a day after news reports said the identity of the whistleblower whose complaint sparked the inquiry could be obscured during his congressional testimony. “The accused had to be confronted by a witness willing to put their name and reputation behind the charges and then had to be available for cross examination.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Giuliani again compared the inquiry into Trump to the witch trials in a conversation with Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Tuesday: “They actually want to impeach him on the testimony of hidden witnesses who are behind a curtain, we don’t know who they are,” he said, adding that he recently had read two books about the Salem witch trials.
Giuliani said the witches “had more rights” than Trump does in this matter.
