“These witnesses must testify,” the national ad says. “Call your senators now.”

The digital billboards feature the four of them with duct tape over their mouths as well as the text “What is Trump hiding?” and a call to specific senators to push for testimony from them.

Chris Truax, the Republicans for Rule of Law spokesman, said the Senate needs to have a “fair and open trial” that includes testimony from these witnesses.  

“Proper trials are seldom comfortable for the accused, but that’s no reason not to hold one, even if the accused is President Trump,” he said. “Impeachment is the ultimate check on abuse of power by the president, and future generations won’t thank us if we weaken it by treating it as just an exercise in partisan politics.”

The group also launched a billboard in Times Square earlier this month with the text “What is Trump hiding?” ahead of the House vote to impeach the president.

The House impeached Trump on two articles of impeachment last week. The Senate is largely expected to acquit the president.
