The historic second Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump is coming to a close.
Trump’s attorneys used just two and a half of their allotted sixteen hours to mount their defense of the former President. The main part of their presentation was a video spliced together of Democrats saying the word “fight.”
They attempted to show that Democrats too used violent language, but it mostly fell flat because the videos had no context, and none of the speeches showed led to violence. The attorneys spread misinformation about antifa being involved in the attacks on the Capitol and wrongly accused House managers of withholding evidence. They also made statements that were blatantly false.
After they were done, the Senate moved into the question and answer portion of the trial, which didn’t go any better for them.
The Senate will reconvene at 10 am Saturday. The rules for the trial allow for two hours of closing arguments and debate on any request from the House prosecutors or the defense to hear from witnesses.
