This Saturday morning, President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense team was set to take the stand to begin their attempts to bulk up the president’s case after three days of arguments from House Dems. As if he’s treating the entire proceeding as a show or battle of ratings, Trump made sure to take to Twitter this weekend to admonish people to tune in. He even included a link to a livestream of his lawyers’ arguments, which will apparently continue on Monday after a comparatively brief session this Saturday morning. The problem is — no amount of self-righteous Twitter posts will erase the large amounts of evidence against the president!
Trump seemed so confident that he resorted to belting out a tirade against “lyin’, cheatin’, liddle’ Adam “Shifty” Schiff, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer, Nervous Nancy Pelosi, their leader, dumb as a rock AOC, & the entire Radical Left” — but if he hoped for most observers to take him as anything other than a seething wannabe mob boss who definitely has something to hide, he failed.
Our case against lyin’, cheatin’, liddle’ Adam “Shifty” Schiff, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer, Nervous Nancy Pelosi, their leader, dumb as a rock AOC, & the entire Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrat Party, starts today at 10:00 A.M. on @FoxNews, @OANN or Fake News @CNN or Fake News MSDNC!

In the time before the lawyers actually took the stand, reporting came out indicating (based on a source) that they’d be “going after the Bidens during the Trump defense presentation,” which is like hypocritical deflection 101. Anything the Bidens did or didn’t do does not negate the evidence indicating that the president tried to bribe Ukraine into investigating them over a political vendetta. It just doesn’t!
This “defense” completely misses the point. If Joe Biden robbed banks in Ukraine it wouldn’t justify Trump using foreign aid to extort the government there to investigate him. https://t.co/UweeflonjP

Yet, here the Republicans remain, sticking to arguments about process, the Bidens, and who knows what next in a desperate apparent attempt to distract from the evidence against Trump.
