Republican asks witnesses if they voted for Trump

Representative Tom McClintock asked the four witnesses in the House Judiciary Committee’s Wednesday impeachment hearing to disclose if they voted for President Trump in 2016. Constitutional law scholar Pamela Karlan protested the question, noting she has every right to cast a secret ballot. When McClintock, a Republican, rephrased the question to ask if the witnesses supported Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election, no one raised their hand — although witness Noah Feldman said that failing to raise a hand should not be interpreted as an answer.
