GOP Senators Say Sekulow ‘Shredded’ Impeachment Case; Schiff Calls A ‘Distortion’
(TLB) Editors note: Below is today’s video of the Senate Impeachment proceedings along with comment sections from an earlier article by the ZeroHedge staff and Tyler Durden.
(ZH) The word of the day is “Shredded” – as in, several Republicans have described the White House counsel’s presentation as having shredded House Democrats’ impeachment arguments.
“In two hours, the White House counsel entirely shredded the case by the House managers,” said Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) in a statement to reporters. “What we saw today was factually relevant … and (we) saw there were a lot of half-truths from the House managers and, frankly, pushed by the media.”
Rep. Elise Stafanik (R-NY) offered similar comments – saying “It took less than two hours to completely shred and eviscerate Adam Schiff’s failed case for impeachment,” adding “There is no case for impeachable offenses here. And it took less than two hours to do so. I think the American people understand that.”
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) said “3 days of Democrat arguments were just shredded 2 hours.”
Rep. Adam Schiff, meanwhile, says the White House counsel is trying to “deflect” away from Democrats’ claims that President Trump abused his office, according to The Hill.
“After listening to the President’s lawyers opening arguments, I have three observations: They don’t contest the facts of Trump’s scheme. They’re trying to deflect, distract from, and distort the truth. And they are continuing to cover it up by blocking documents and witnesses,” Schiff tweeted on Saturday.
Legal team member, Jay Sekulow, referred to Saturday’s session as “a trailer” of “coming attractions” for next week’s sessions.
