Nancy Pelosi picked House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler as one of the impeachment managers.
It didn’t take more than a day for Pelosi to begin wishing she’d picked someone else.
That’s because Trump’s lawyer just completely destroyed Jerry Nadler when he dropped this jaw-dropping truth bomb.
The first day of the trial was a complete waste of time.
Democrats forced pointless procedural votes over subpoenaing witnesses and documents despite the Republican majority passing rules that followed the Clinton impeachment model.
Under that precedent, all decisions on witnesses will come after each side made their opening arguments and the Senators had time to ask questions.
Nadler argued one motion to subpoena former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s testimony would “put the United States Senate on trial” and that the President’s lawyers were “lying.”
Democrats argued all day that Republicans were engaging in a cover up because they would not allow Democrats to run the Senate trial.
Nadler made that very argument in the wee hours of that morning and that set off White House Counsel Pat Cippollone.
Cippollone’s fiery response was the highlight of the first day of the impeachment witch hoax trial.
“Thank you, Mr. Chief Justice, members of the Senate. We came here today to address the false case brought to you by the House managers,” Cippollone began.
“We’ve been respectful of the Senate. We’ve made our arguments to you. And you don’t deserve, and we don’t deserve, what just happened. Mr. Nadler came up here and made false allegations against our team. He made false allegations against all of you: he accused you of a ‘cover up.” He’s been making false allegations against the President,” Cippollone added.
“The only one who should be embarrassed, Mr. Nadler, is you, for the way you addressed this body. This is the United States Senate. You’re not in charge here,” Cippollone continued.
“Mr. Nadler, you owe an apology to the President of the United States and his family. You owe an apology to the Senate. But most of all, you owe an apology to the American people.”
Many Americans who are fed up with the Democrats’ lies and smears about President Trump cheered on Cippollone’s response to Nadler.
This trial is the first opportunity the President had to make his case and his lawyers made the most of it.
