They do find themselves in a difficult position - of their own making.
Finally, Senator Schumer says failure to call additional witnesses is somehow a "coverup," even though 51 Senators can still insist on additional testimony.
First, Speaker Pelosi said it was too divisive, but later succumbed to her more radical members; then, Schiff excludes R witnesses in secret hearings and declines to litigate privilege claims during House inquiry, sending it to Senate tainted and half-baked.
Noteworthy that our D friends are blaming everyone else - and accepting zero responsibility - for their quandary on #impeachment.

8) Save the rest for 2020 election
5) After parties present their evidence on disputed facts, if 51 Senators want to hear from additional fact witnesses, they can compel their appearance
6) But testimony would be appropriate only on contested facts from those with personal knowledge that tend to prove or disprove House charges.
7) Senate then decides any disputed facts and whether they prove the Constitution’s requirement of “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors”
4) Bust juries in America don’t direct the presentation of evidence, the parties to contested proceedings do.
3) While Senate sits as a court of impeachment, it is similar but not the same as a civil or criminal jury
That is, let the parties present their own case.
A few thoughts on manufactured kerfuffle over witnesses during Senate trial on House Articles of impeachment: 1) how about letting the House impeachment managers present the evidence they rely on in supports of charges? 2) how about allowing POTUS’s lawyers to do the same?

Impeachment for policy differences? Here is what GAO said: “We conclude that OMB violated the ICA when it withheld USAI funds for a policy reason.” twitter.com/facethenation/…
“Se­ri­ous peo­ple un­der­stand the im­pli­ca­tions of things. Im­peach­ment has now been nor­mal­ized. It won’t be a once-in-a-gen­er­a­tion act but an every-ad­min­is­tra­tion act. De­moc­rats will re­gret it when Re­pub­li­cans are hand­ing out the pens.” @Peggynoonannyc
But the impeachment of a president is a grave and unhappy event. It’s not celebratory. Enacting triumphalism was shallow and looked like a tell. Why pens, why not a scalp?" @Peggynoonannyc
