    LIVE: Trump’s Defense Continues

    We’ll hear from Dershowitz and Starr today.

    President Donald Trump’s attorneys will continue their opening arguments at 1 p.m. ET in front of the Senate.

    Day Six

    Trump lawyer Ken Starr had an interesting speech to say the least. He basically advocated to get rid of impeachment, calling it obsolete.

    Recap

    The defense team still has 22 hours left to present their case.

    Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr will address the Senate today.

    We do not know yet if the defense attorneys will bring up The New York Times story about former National Security Advisor John Bolton. A new book of his claims that Trump ordered Bolton "to keep military aid to Ukraine frozen in a bid to coerce political favors."

    However, the story strengthened the moderate Republicans to push the chamber to call for witnesses. We knew Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Maine Sen. Susan Collins, and Utah Sen. Mitt Romney leaned in that direction.

    Collins and Romney said this morning they definitely want witnesses.

    Collins released this statement:

    Romney told reporters that he wants Bolton to testify. He also thinks other GOP senators will join his demand as well.

    The Democrats need at least Republican senators to pass a motion to call witnesses.

    Any reason you folks at LI linked to the WP feed for this?

    Watching the coverage during the breaks is hilarious.

    They dismiss the entire defense presentation and just want to talk about Bolton and his “shocking”, “bombshell” blah blah blah supposed revelations and more defense of the Biden crime syndicate of course…

    Honestly I do not understand your perspective. Bondi comes across to me crystal clear and in plain speak. I am baffeled by your assessment. smh I do not know what else to say. Bondi means nothing to me, I am just calling balls and strikes and not for thothin’ what I am hearing from you comes from way out in left field. I am completely missing what you are saying,

    I am a real history buff. However; enough is enough. Is it possible to bring a Class Action Suit against congress for inflicting this upon us? Shoot me now…
