Donald Trump’s insult to the nation continues over his impeachment defense: Live Coverage # 2


WASHINGTON, DC - February 10: A placard reading `` Condemned or be complicit '' hangs from a bridge on North Capitol Street on the second day of former President Donald Trump's second trial at the U.S. Capitol on February 10, 2021 in Washington, DC.  House impeachment administrators will prove that Trump was unilaterally responsible for the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, and that he should be condemned and barred from holding public office again.

Donald Trump’s impeachment defense begins – and is expected to end – today, after two days of debate over his conviction by the impeachment directors in the House. That trial was very solid, and it follows how Trump paved the way to delegitimizing an election he lost, then following when he lost, insisting that the election must be stolen. They showed that Trump himself chose the January 6 date for an event – which he promised would be “wild” – and called on his supporters to Washington, DC the day Congress met to ratify the election results. They showed his frequent pressure and public attacks on Mike Pence, who wanted to overturn the elections. They showed how the crowd outside the White House encouraged anger and march to the Capitol. They showed how the mob received Trump’s instructions, saying it themselves in videos of the Capitol attack and in interviews and court documents since they were doing what they were asked to do. They’ve shown how close they come to harming members of Congress – especially Pence -. And they showed how Trump did not summon the mob throughout the offensive.

Now his defense team begins, realizing that the vast majority of Republican senators do not care how guilty Trump is nor how ineffective the defense is. Expect to be incompetent and dangerous instead and to show her contempt for the rule of law in her flabby and shortness.

It will be broadcast on the major TV news networks and broadcast on their websites. Daily Kos will have an ongoing coverage.

Van der Venn It would really go the way of the First Amendment Defense. Which seems to require a lot of reading things slowly.

Since these are the Trump team’s weakest points, it’s okay if they want to run out of time with this.

Significant portions of Trump’s January 6 speech haven’t been played, including things that have nothing to do with what is happening Van der Vein said he was trying to do so. He made sure to include Hunter Biden in the clip.

Frankly, the House directors could have run the same clip. Because it certainly isn’t helping Trump.
