Trump Legal Team Ready to Give Dems a Taste of Their Own Medicine
Time to get the popcorn ready!
This week will be a wild one on Capitol Hill, with Donald Trump facing his second impeachment trial after he’s already left office.
The unprecedented timing of the affair has led many on the GOP side of things to declare the entire situation “unconstitutional”, and it’s pushed Senator Lindsey Graham to suggest that the outcome of this particular trial is all but decided already.
With the trial set to begin on Tuesday, Trump’s lawyers are looking to hit the Democrats right where it hurts by pointing out that their behavior is not all that different from the “incitement” that they’ve accused No. 45 of.
Former President Donald Trump‘s defense at his Senate impeachment trial will include videos of Democrats encouraging violence, one of his lawyers said Friday.
The clips would counter videos that Democrats likely will show of the riot at Capitol and Mr. Trump‘s fiery speech at a rally shortly before the attack on Jan. 6, which Mr. Trump stands accused of inciting.
The clips could be quite effective.
Trump lawyer Bruce Castor told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham “you can count on that” when asked about using video montage of Democratic members of Congress calling for violence against Trump administration officials and law enforcement.
“I’ve been looking at a lot of video over the past couple of days,” Mr. Castor said. “You better be careful what you wish for.”
The montage is sure to include a long-controversial statement from Maxine Waters of California, who infamously told her constituents to make conservatives feels “unwelcome” and “uncomfortable” – a statement made just days ahead of a number of incidents in which members of the Trump team were publicly harassed.
