The Senate will conclude its Q&A session today. I encourage everyone to pay attention to it. I found it interesting, except when Adam Schiff speaks.

It begins at 1 p.m. ET.

Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow is 100% correct. We have seen how they behave when it doesn’t go their way.

Rep. Jerry Nadler has a tendency to provoke Republican senators. He did it again today:

When House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler invoked the name of Sens. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, the two swing votes were seen taking notes about Nadler’s contention that the defense’s arguments about President Trump’s mixed motives were “nonsense.”

Nadler argued it didn’t matter if there was a mixed motive.

“Once you prove a corrupt act, that’s it,” he said.

Philbin had a great reminder for everyone about a person not waiving their rights:

Mr. Philbin responds thatit is “striking and shocking” that Democrats have cast President Trump as having something to hide because he has sought to block some potential evidence. He said Democrats have made statements such as “only the guilty hide evidence,” “Only the guilty don’t respond to subpoenas,” and “this is not the way innocent people act.” Mr. Philbin continued: “Well, of course, that’s contrary to the very spirit of our American justice system where people have rights, and asserting those rights cannot be interpreted as an indication of guilt.”

So Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell began the procedure with a veiled threat to Rand Paul. Remember, last night Paul caused a somewhat commotion when Chief Justice John Roberts wouldn’t read his question since it named the whistleblower.

Well, Paul submitted his question right away and…

The session has about seven hours and 54 minutes left for the House managers and President Donald Trump’s team.

Senate Majority Whip John Thune said “it’s still uncertain” how some of his colleagues will vote. We already know Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Maine Sen. Susan Collins, and Utah Sen. Mitt Romney could possibly vote for witnesses and new evidence.

The media has latched its claws into retiring Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander as the wild card. He’s basically told everyone to leave him alone.

Then we have conservative Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin. He said he would vote for witnesses, but that includes a subpoena for Hunter Biden.

Sen. Lindsey Graham is confident the chamber has 53 votes to subpoena Hunter Biden.
