It only took one day for Democrats to look foolish at the Senate impeachment hearings and on the very first day destroyed their own narrative.
Last year, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff rushed through the impeachment process claiming it needed to be done and done quickly. Now, that the articles have been turned over to the Senate they claim more evidence needs to be investigated for the trail to be “fair.”
This is coming from the same Democrats that would not allow the President to have witnesses of his own during the House impeachment inquiry and refused to allow Republicans to call any witness that would support the President.
It seemed Pelosi only rushed impeachment just to let President Trump know, he’s been “impeached for life.”
As White House counsel Pat Cippollone said during his opening remarks the Democrats whipped out their own argument to have a “fair trial.”
“By the way, I was surprised to hear that — did you realize, you’re on trial? Mr. Nadler is putting you on trial. everybody’s on trial except for them. It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. They said in their brief ‘we have overwhelming evidence and they’re afraid to make their case,’” Cippollone said.“‘Overwhelming evidence to impeach the president of the United States.’ And then they come here on the first day and they say, ‘You know what? We need some more evidence.’”
For a group that has “overwhelming” evidence and an ironclad case they sure aren’t acting like it. I think there is more than enough evidence that Schiff and Pelosi were reckless, lied, and fabricated information. They themselves should be investigated by the House Ethics Committee.
Cippollone put it perfectly this isn’t about the rule of law, it’s about the 2016 election and trying to steal the 2020 election.
WH counsel Pat Cippollone destroys the Democrats’ absurd argument
Dems: “Our case is overwhelming!”
Also Dems: “We need more evidence!”
