Everything is on video now, and that seems to be a problem for politicians in particular. White House counsel Pat Cipollone wrapped up the defense’s case Tuesday by playing a compilation of clips from Democrats like Rep. Jerry Nadler and Sen. Chuck Schumer warning against a partisan impeachment, and as Cipollone notes, they were right and prophetic.
He wasn’t kidding about the prophetic part. Watch this:

Using their words is priceless

Gotta love it. Using their own words against them and showing the world what hypocrites they are.

He didn’t have to say anything! You could hear it resonated w/ the Senators when they started laughing.

Yep! The first and last time @SenSchumer was right

Jerry and Chuck are classic examples of why term limits should exist.

Laughter says it all. Cipollone looking right at that blowhard Schumer. What a great ending.

The clips are from 1998 and those Senators and Reps have been lurking around DC over 20 years. We need term limits.

That, my friends, is effective advocacy.

@RepZoeLofgren thank you for your video Rep. Lofgren. That video from the Clinton impeachment was the best argument of the whole trial showing why this impeachment is partisan and needs to stop! Thank you!

It's a sham. Pure partisan political theater and a waste of taxpayer money. Shameful. Americans can pass judgement on Trump this November.
FWIW: This American stands by Trump.
He enjoys my full support.#TrumpLandslideVictory2020

Schumer was filleted.

That’s a trial lawyer. The difference between who the Dems sent to come litigate their case and who Trump sent is like night and day

Schiff and his team know they have a losing hand, even if they somehow get Bolton to testify, but their hatred of Trump prevents them from folding the hand and letting the country move on from this charade. They will also be sorely disappointed with how this affects the election.

The way these democrats have demonized this President is so unbelievable. From the moment President Trump was elected it been one investigation after another always the same results and smears. This democratic party needs to be removed.
