Nadler ripped final argument away from Schiff, thinks Shifty did a terrible job. They are fighting big time! https://t.co/L2qTV9pWiL— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 31, 2020
Video of the closing statement by the Democratic impeachment managers at the Senate trial on Thursday has generated some headlines and a lot of online hilarity and mockery from the right, including President Trump.
The clip appears to show House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) obstinately taking it upon himself to have the final word in the trial Thursday, while fellow impeachment manager House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) tries in vain to stop him.
Nadler’s furious rush to the podium was prompted by Chief Justice Roberts asking the Democratic impeachment managers, “Could you please respond to the answer just given by the president’s counsel and provide any other comments the Senate would benefit from hearing before we adjourn for the evening?”
In response, a determined Nadler stormed up to the podium, while Schiff pleaded, “Jerry, Jerry, Jerry,” as he stepped toward his colleague, who paid him no heed.
For the third time in history, the House has voted to impeach the president of the United States.
On Wednesday night, the House voted to pass its first of two articles of impeachment brought against President Donald Trump — one charging the president with abusing his power. The second article the House will vote on shortly accuses Trump of obstructing Congress. Both are tied to the Ukraine scandal and Trump’s urging of the Ukrainian president to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, and his son, Hunter.
My thoughts on the Democratic impeachment proceedings against President Trump: pic.twitter.com/MjB0RY1Lt0— Rep. Russ Fulcher (@RepRussFulcher) December 18, 2019
Idaho Republican Representative Russ Fulcher on Wednesday read off a list of crimes that he said President Donald Trump committed as the House debated impeachment on the floor of the House of Representatives.
“In a day heavy in verbal debate, I chose to use my time to enumerate in detail every high crime and misdemeanor committed by the President of the United States,” Fulcher began. “I will do so now.”
For the next 20 seconds, Fulcher stood in silence until his time expired and did not name a single crime committed by the president.
