Schiff's Pathetic Response to Trump's Defense Team

After President Donald Trump's defense team presented their opening statement on Saturday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman and Impeachment Manager Adam Schiff (D-CA) took to Twitter to chide the president's legal team.

For starters, the president's team poked holes in the Democrats' entire argument. They reminded the American people that Democrats continually lied to the Senate and the American people by omitting vital information, like the fact that President Trump wanted other nations to share the burden of helping Ukraine.

Democrats continually invoke Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland's testimony as evidence that President Donald Trump threatened to withhold military aid to Ukraine unless an investigation was launched into the Bidens and their corrupt behavior. The reality is that Sondland had no direct knowledge of the call and offered no evidence. His testimony is based solely on his own presumption.

Trump's teams aren't trying to "distort the truth." If anything, they're trying to provide the whole truth, you know, the one the Democrats continually cherry-pick.

Schiff can take issue with Trump invoking executive privilege but that's not considered a "cover-up" by any stretch of the imagination. If the House wanted to hear witness testimony or see documents they should have slowed down and waited for the courts to rule whether or not those people and documents can be used in the trial. For all we know, they could be highly classified.
