LIVE: Trump Defense in Senate Impeachment Trial Starts

LIVE: Trump Defense in Senate Impeachment Trial Starts

After Democrats wrapped up by throwing insults at Trump and Republican Senators, Trump gets his chance to push back.

Trump’s defense starts today in the Senate impeachment trial. For a preview of the arguments, read Trump’s Trial Brief.

Democrats wrapped up last night by name calling, with Jerry Nadler calling Trump a Dictator, and Adam Schiff quoting an unsourced CBS New report that Republican Senators getting their heads put on a pike if they vote against Trump, angering many Republican Senators at Schiff’s insulting conduct.

Republican Senators are showing signs of having grown backbones. Let’s see if it lasts.


It is expected that Trump’s defense will go for a 2-3 hours today, then a full day on Monday.

President Trump urges Americans to watch:

Money line from Pat Cippolone:

“For all their talk about election interference, that they’re here to perpetuate the most massive interference in an election in American history, and we can’t allow that to happen.”

The presentation is focused to what the Democrat House managers did not tell the Senate, including numerous quotes from witnesses showing that the snippets read by Schiff et al. were misleading and contrary to the truth of what the witnesses said.


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


“Briefs” would be the right word. Not much need to go all in like the Dems did. Simple refutation, explanation and summarization. The public has had enough. Senator’s rear ends have had more than enough.

Schiff and Nadler couldn’t dial back the crazy. Not even for a few hours before the Senate. Yes, we’ve noticed.

OMG, just the outline of the trial brief is a slam dunk!

I am live-tweeting the trial with others who also thinks the outline of the program is brilliant — and hits the House Managers at their weakest spots.

OMG! They are bringing Schiff into the trial via video. This is really MUST SEE TV! ROFL!!!

The Trump Team is literally putting the House Impeachment Process on trial.

Bring the pain!

Taxpayers should be mad as hell about staggering costs associated with both the Russia scam and now the impeachment scam. In the end we are all paying for this. Heads need to roll, scalps taken (and since I am 1/8 native, my comment is politically correct) 🙂

That was suppose to be an upvote…sorry
Big fingers

I am not watching, but have read that Jay is in his head and not delivering?

    Jay was great. Everyone has been amazing…quite professional and succinct. Find video clips or get on CSPAN and you will see.

    I wonder if some people were expecting him to be like he has been when speaking to the media during breaks (ie. much more animated and punchy), and were disappointed that he wasn’t. But if he was, the media would have latched onto that (He’s a bully! He is undignified!)

Patrick Philbin now has the nickname Undertaker. He is burying the Articles of Impeachment.

I’m at the Cleveland Hopkins Airport with gawd-awful CNN on in our departure gate. Their hatred is well known but hearing how they ripped apart Trump’s legal team just now is truly sick. Hard to listen to.

The good news is that while here in Cleveland we placed my mother’s ashes next to my dad’s, had a grand tour of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, ate a fabulous dinner in Little Italy, and saw the hysterically funny Joe Machi live at a downtown comedy club. All to the good!

First, last night. I watched none of the house managers; let the senators suffer the fools alone. However, I did watch last night’s local news from a midwestern town with an audience of half its state (based on the way they cover the weather during every broadcast).

What stood out to me is that here we were on the closing night of the house democrat’s OH MY GOD impeachment presentation and the impeachment wasn’t even mentioned until eleven (11) minutes into the 10:00 news (traditional 11:00 news back east). The first eleven minutes of everything from a local traffic accident to Boeing to an explosion in Texas…..and NOTHING about the impeachment. Then mid show they played a ~1:30 tape from its national news master….and then back to anything but the impeachment.

Bottom line? We’re having only the 3rd impeachment in our nation’s history, with congress holding marathon hearings to potentially remove a president from office….. and no one cares. Everyone out here knows it’s all hooey. And that was before Schiff for brains’ had his head-on-a-pike fa-paux that completely lost the republican side of the senate.

Republicans should have started Saturday off with a motion to dismiss. No one would notice or care.

As for today’s defense testimony. Schiff for brains and Nadler were probably uncomfortably schifting in their seats this morning. Each of the defense team made their points without repeatedly regurgitating each other’s talking points. Well done.

John F. Kennedy lowered taxes, opposed abortion, supported gun rights, and believed in a strong military. He was a proud Democrat. If he was still alive, he would be a Republican.

Notice how far the left has shifted?

that they’re here to perpetuate the most massive interference in an election in American history

Well, I don’t know . . . 1876 was pretty bad, not as blatant but in the end more seismic. Maybe. And 1800 was spectacular, but that was a screwup by the electors, and the presidential election was a tie. Both of these ended up in the House; a vision of sugarplums which I imagine is enough to put Nan in a state of diabetic shock.

CNN Journalist Who Pushed Original Dossier Story Now Covers Invalid FISA Application That Relied on Dossier…

    I’m so tired of listen to Trey Gowdy. He was all talk and no action when he was a representative and he’s all talk and definitely no action now that he’s retired from the House. He’s just another talking head that can be ignored as irrelevant.

“..starts today at 10:00 A.M. on @FoxNews, @OANN or Fake News @CNN or Fake News MSDNC!”

I was traveling today [flying] and didn’t get to see anything. However, if the above is true, this is extreme gross prejudice on part of the OTA networks ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, as these networks showed coverage of the full democratic hearings. Can anybody confirm if ABC, etc. showed these hearings? If not, I will lodge a protest with the FCC.

How timely and purely Democrat – Cipollone in the first minutes of his defense mentions the Democrats are asking the Senate to rip up the ballots for the next election which will occur in approximately 9 months – one day after the March For Life March.
The Democrats are asking the Senate to Abort the 2020 Presidential Election – and not a Partial Birth Abortion – a full and complete killing of our Constitutional election process.

Regarding (Wiki + other sources)

Cipollone’s father was an Italian immigrant and factory worker; his mother was a homemaker. He spent most of his childhood in the Bronx.[1]

The family moved to Kentucky, where he graduated from Covington Catholic High School in 1984 (apparently never attacked by Black Jews and drunken Indians).

He graduated as class valedictorian from Fordham University in 1988, with a Bachelor of Arts in economics and political philosophy.[1]

He attended the University of Chicago Law School, where he was managing editor of the University of Chicago Law Review, earning a Juris Doctor in 1991.

a partner at the law firm Kirkland & Ellis, and prior to taking over as White House Counsel was a partner at Stein, Mitchell, Cipollone, Beato & Missner, where he practiced commercial litigation.

Cipollone is a Roman Catholic, a founding member of the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast and a board member of the Catholic Information Center.

He has ten children. With 10 kids he’s dealt with the behaviors of Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler and Schumer –

I have never seen a Prosecution so hopelessly gutted.
And the poor bastards have to show up Monday for more medicine.
This is almost sadistic.

The defense is clearly 20 levels above the Prosecution.

But, the Defense has to be merciful, and finish them off professionally.

All details must be addressed.

It’s like an All-Pro football team against a pack of 3rd graders.
Hopeless. Miserable. Imagine the humiliation.
