House Managers Get Top Marks From Observers
Jake Tapper, CNN: “The other thing that struck me was how much of the case Schiff presented was merely running video tape of Trump and his administration officials saying things that are quite damning.”
Jeffrey Toobin, CNN: “I thought it was dazzling. I thought the way [Schiff] wove through both the facts of the case and the historical context was really remarkable…When you consider the volume of information he covered…It’s very persuasive stuff. If people are listening, it’s very hard to imagine that they will think that the Democrats and House Managers are making this up.”
GOP Senators Skip Out On Trial And Fall Asleep
At the start of the Senate impeachment trial yesterday and during today’s opening statements, several Republican senators were seen walking out of the chamber or even falling asleep at their desks.
IRONY ALERT: GOP Senators Whine About “Nothing New” After Blocking New Evidence, Not Doing Their Homework
Senate Republicans—including some that walked out of the chamber during the House Managers’ opening statements—are whining that they “haven’t heard anything new” less than 24 hours after they voted to block the admission of new evidence.
Yesterday, McConnell and GOP senators voted to:
- Block key documents from the National Security Council, Office of Management and Budget, Department of State, and Department of Defense.
- Block firsthand witnesses like former National Security Advisor John Bolton, Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and his aide Robert Blair, and OMB official Michael Duffey.
If Republicans really wanted to hear something “new,” they would allow the key witnesses and documents necessary to uncover the full truth.
