Highly unlikely. Experienced prosecutors (and, hell, it's taught in law school, too!) know you prepare before calling witnesses by interviewing them or taking their depositions so there are no surprises at trial. Trial is generally not by surprise or ambush. It is more likely to happen in criminal proceedings, but even there it is not likely these days.RVInit wrote: ↑Wed Nov 13, 2019 12:35 pmGiven that all these witnesses can identify specific people in the administration who clearly have direct evidence but are refusing to testify, is it possible that if/when it gets to the Senate, those individuals can be subpoenaed and then directed to testify by the Chief Justice?
So I wouldn't expect any surprise witnesses. Unless Trump decides to testify and set us all straight. Now THAT would be something.
But it's not going to happen.
