Three exhausting days of opening statements from the Democrats prosecuting the case against President Trump drew to a close with fireworks Friday evening as impeachment manager Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., labeled the president a “dictator” in fiery remarks.
“He is a dictator,” Nadler said Friday evening, arguing Trump wants to be “all powerful” and not respect Congress. “This must not stand. And that is why — another reason — he must be removed from office.”
Nadler’s comments came as Democrats were wrapping their opening arguments in the trial, insisting the president tried to “cheat” in the 2020 election through his dealings with Ukraine and should therefore be removed from office.
Meanwhile, the president’s team of lawyers have vowed to lay out an aggressive case in defense of the president when they begin their opening statements Saturday morning.
“It’s not a rebuttal, but what we are going to do is attack, attack all of the misstatements,” Trump lawyer Jordan Sekulow previewed Friday on “Fox and Friends.”
“We’re going to make the case for the president why the president was totally within his constitutional rights,” he added.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Saturday’s session will begin at 10 a.m. ET and run “for several hours.”
A source on the president’s legal team told reporters they expect the sessions to be short, possibly between 2 to 3 hours. They suggested it will be an “overview of coming attractions” with the “bulk” presentation coming on Monday. That’s when this source says they’ll get into the “nitty gritty”
Asked how much the Trump defense team will talk about the Bidens, the Trump legal team source said that the House made them part of the case, so “we’ll have to be addressing that.”
In their final day of arguments, Democrats argued that Trump obstructed Congress by thwarting the House inquiry into his efforts to seek foreign intervention in his reelection bid by asking Ukraine to dirty up Joe Biden, and his son, Hunter Biden, with investigations.
“There’s a toxic mess at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and I humbly suggest that it’s our collective job on behalf of the American people to try to clean it up,” Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., said. “President Trump tried to cheat. He got caught and then he worked hard to cover it up.”
Earlier Friday, anticipating a possible showdown with the White House, Democrats argued that Trump cannot conceal documents and block witnesses from testifying in his trial by invoking executive privilege.
“That’s nonsense,” Rep. Adam Schiff, the lead impeachment manager, said before taking the Senate floor for the third day of Democrats laying out their case against the president. “This is not a trial or a speeding ticket or shoplifting — this is an impeachment trial involving the President of the United States.”
Republicans wanting to shut down the impeachment trial without calling new witnesses have warned that Trump could invoke presidential privileges and set up a protracted legal fight that would take too long. They argue that if the House had such a strong case to impeach Trump, they wouldn’t need the Senate’s help for testimony.
For the last three days, the citizens of the United States of America have witnessed a bunch of lies which they had heard and seen before during the “Impeachment Inquiry” held by the House Democrats.
The House Managers, chosen by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, repeated these lies ad infinitum in the hopes that their verbal torture would force “Moderate” Republican Senators to turn against President Donald J. Trump and to side with them and their Democrat colleagues in the Senate, instead of doing the right thing and standing in unity with their fellow Republicans and vote for dismissal of the Sham Impeachment or to acquit the President .
For the past three days, not only have the Democrat House Managers lied their hindquarters off, they have instructed and insulted Republican Senators, telling them that they will not be doing “right” if they do not vote to impeach Trump.
Quite frankly, in this Deplorable’s eyes, Schiff, Nadler, Jeffries, and the rest of the House Managers accomplished nothing by their three-day rant but to establish themselves in the eyes of average Americans between the coasts as the “Poster Children” for the 3-year long National Temper Tantrum which began the night of November 8, 2016 when Political Outsider Donald J. Trump defeated the “Chosen One” Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States of America.
When Trump’s Legal Defense Team begins their Oral Arguments today, expect to see and hear everything that average Americans know to be true about the man we elected and the politics and “Inside Baseball” of the Machiavellian Machinations which led to the Sham Impeachment by the House Democrats over nothing at all, except a desire to remove a duly-elected President from office.
If the Democrat Elite believe that they have accomplished anything over the last three days, they have not been paying attention.
Average Americans were not paying any attention to them at all.
We watched clips of their whining on Fox News before and after WORK.
And, those Americans who began watching them, soon changed channels, as the ratings for the last three days show.
I believe that there will be a lot of Americans tuning back in to the proceedings this morning.
Just to watch Shifty, Jerry, and the rest of the “Little Rascals” squirm as the truth is told.
Oh, and while Jerry Nadler was calling President Trump a “dictator”, the man he was insulting was becoming the first American President to appear at the annual March for Life, where he said…
…Every life brings love into this world. Every child brings joy to a family. Every person is worth protecting.”
That doesn’t sound like a “dictator” to me.
That sounds like an AMERICAN PRESIDENT.
Don’t you agree?
Until He Comes,
