On Saturday, President Donald Trump's defense team had the opportunity to poke holes in the House Democrats' impeachment case. One of the topics the defense team instantly ran with was House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff's (D-CA) totally bogus narrative of what took place in Trump's July 25th call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
According to Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), when the defense team played the video of Schiff "reading" his version of the call transcript, "the blood drained from Adam Schiff's face."
"Today we heard a presentation that was strong and that was clear and it completely undermined the case of the Democrats and truly undermined the credibility of Adam Schiff," Barrasso said following the hearing. "The most effective thing that happened was when they first read – this was when the president's counsel first read the transcript of the phone call with the President of the United States and the President of Ukraine and then played the video of Adam Schiff with his fictionalized, made-up script."
"From where I was sitting, and I know the press couldn't see his face, but the blood drained from Adam Schiff's face as they played that video and his made-up words," Barrasso said.
According to the senator, the House's case is based on selective information. He said the president's counsel used two hours to address the information the House left out during their 21 hours of testimony, something he says the Democrats are doing to "undermine the 2020 election."
Today, we heard a presentation that was strong, that was clear & that completely undermined the case of Democrats against @realDonaldTrump & undermined the credibility of @RepAdamSchiff. I look forward to hearing more from the White House team in the coming days. pic.twitter.com/qwMTLdSxnJ— Sen. John Barrasso (@SenJohnBarrasso) January 25, 2020
