And so today Comrade Stupid’s defense team will present its case, and because they have an idiot for a client, instead of rebutting the charges against Prznint Stupid, they will prosecute Joe Biden, with the ultimate goal that he will be so tainted that he will not be the Democratic nominee. The Constitution itself is now being disrupted by Comrade Trump in furtherance of his own personal benefit, just like Trump used military aid as a way to extort a personal benefit from Ukraine.
The impeachment trial is now a campaign event, full stop.
Here’s Politico’s rundown of the schedule of events:
THE TRUMP TEAM DEFENSE starts at 10 a.m. today. President DONALD TRUMP suggested Saturdays are the backwater of television, but the networks are taking the proceedings live with their top talent at the wheel.
IT’S A SHORT DAY TODAY: The session is expected to wrap around 1 p.m., and the Senate will take tomorrow off and return Monday.
WHAT TO EXPECT TODAY … JAY SEKULOW told a group of us reporters in the Capitol yesterday that today would be like a “trailer … coming attractions.” SEKULOW said they would be speaking a lot about JOE and HUNTER BIDEN.
… WE ANTICIPATE the Trump defense will last today and Monday. Then Senate questions are TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY — Dems are expected to use this time, in part, to rebut the Trump defense. The debate on witnesses will probably be THURSDAY — probably a vote on witnesses, as well. If there are no witnesses, we’d guess they’ll close FRIDAY, and deliberate into SATURDAY. Vote could come next SATURDAY or MONDAY
— IF THERE ARE WITNESSES, this whole timeline is blown up, and the process will continue for weeks. (h/t the POLITICO Hill team)
