Trump's defense begins opening arguments in impeachment trial: Live coverage #3

Donald Trump’s defense team previewed a very Donald Trump strategy during Tuesday’s procedural debate in the impeachment trial: lie, attack, ignore the facts. Now it’s time for a concentrated blast of that as they begin their opening arguments. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 5:00:17 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner Philbin ends his character assault on Schiff, and hands off to Cipollone so he can continue the character attack on Schiff. Cipollone also tosses in claims that Democrats manufactured evidence, along with an obligatory attempt to “cancel the election.” For some reason, Cipollone thinks that reading completely innocuous parts of the transcript really, really, really slowly makes for more impact. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 5:03:14 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner Cipollone says all they’ve talked about today is “the facts.” Which means talking about overturning an election, attacking the intelligence community, character attacks on Adam Schiff, character attacks on the whistleblower and process arguments about why Congressional subpoenas are “invalid.” Plus support for Trump’s conspiracy theories. You know. The facts. And they’re outta there until Monday afternoon. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 5:08:20 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner What the opening of the Trump case illustrated was that they seem to have even less than previously suggested. Which could mean that the pre-puncturing done by the House managers caused some material to be left on the cutting room floor. Although, the straight up repetition of already debunked nonsense, especially by Jay Sekulow, would indicate that the Trump attorneys wouldn’t shy away from making claims that were already known lies. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 5:09:33 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner Waiting for every Republican to spend time in front of the Fox camera being astonished by all the «new» information. Please folks, form an orderly queue. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 5:10:29 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner xAfter 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.— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) January 25, 2020 Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 5:12:11 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner Start your countdown for when Trump tweets that the ratings for his attorneys were so much better than House managers. Unless he's already done it. Because ... ratings. They're what's important. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 5:15:20 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner x«White House and white people» @JeffreyToobin on the Trump legal team FTW.— Joan Walsh (@joanwalsh) January 25, 2020 Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 5:23:15 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner BTW, when Pat Philbin made a claim that there's a connection between the whistleblower and Joe Biden, it may have seemed like a play to the fringes of fringedom. It’s not. Consider this the warm-up act for an argument that the whole whistleblower complaint was designed to block the investigation into Burisma. Expect that exact claim to be made by Republicans, including Lindsey Graham, who is now calling for an investigation into the Bidens apart from the impeachment.

Pompeo responds to reports of rage-filled tirade against reporter with lie-filled statement

The non-impeachment bombshell of the week was NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly's interview with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the interview in which he blustered and lied to the unflappable Kelly; the interview that so enraged him that he followed up with a rage- and expletive-filled rant at Kelly off tape. The State Department did not respond to NPR with a statement after the story broke Friday, but now has released a rage-filled statement from Pompeo on department letterhead, one in which he blusters and lies.

Trump's defense begins opening arguments in impeachment trial: Live coverage #2

Donald Trump’s defense team previewed a very Donald Trump strategy during Tuesday’s procedural debate in the impeachment trial: lie, attack, ignore the facts. Now it’s time for a concentrated blast of that as they begin their opening arguments. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 4:05:12 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner Jay Sekulow, ladies and gentlemen, is reading a FISA court document on an FBI investigation which is all part of a scheme to see how many times he can say “Crossfire Hurricane.” Because man, who wouldn’t want to say Crossfire Hurricane. Crossfire Hurricane. There, I said it again. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 4:07:28 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner Sekulow seems like he’s getting ready to unfold not just an argument to support not just Trump, but the Crowdstrike conspiracy. Which … sure. Let’s do that. At this point, I honestly can’t think of anything that might move the needle more than letting Trump’s real motivations spill all over the Senate. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 4:13:30 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner If Donald Trump withheld military assistance to Ukraine because of concern about European «burden sharing» then: - Why didn't they tell Ukraine? - Why didn't they tell Congress? - Why didn't they tell anyone in Europe who might have done something about it? Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 4:14:17 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner And none of this has a thing to do with the assistance to Ukraine, where Trump had no legal standing to hold the aid without notifying Congress. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 4:15:36 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner Notice that Sekulow keeps quoting words out of context without playing the clips so you can hear either the question or the full response. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 4:21:10 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner What Sekulow ignores is that Trump twice passed along the full military assistance package to the previous Ukrainian government, despite genuine concerns — raised by the DOD — about the government at that point being corrupt. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 4:22:46 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner Notice what’s in every other hold on military assistance? The word “announced.” When Trump delayed the assistance in other instances, it was done with announcements and notification to Congress. The aid to Pakistan was cancelled because Pakistan failed the review required under legislation. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 4:25:41 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner Might be worth pointing out that it was Congress that authorized sales of offensive weapons to Ukraine, a process that didn’t begin until after the pro-Russian government that Paul Manafort helped put in place was ousted. Oh, and that previous Ukraine government who got their aid unhindered? They got that package after the president at that time suspended Ukrainian investigations into Manafort. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 4:28:56 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner Sekulow sits down and hands over to White House deputy assistant attorney Pat Philbin. Saturday, Jan 25, 2020 · 4:30:56 PM +00:00 · Mark Sumner What might have really worked to show Trump’s concern about burden sharing, would be evidence that during the hold Trump talked to some other country about increasing support for Ukraine. Or heck, that he made that pitch at any time. So … where is that evidence?
