    The Senate will break for lunch.

    Upon return, the senators will have an opportunity to make their impeachment speeches.

    Trump Lawyer Jay Sekulow Highlights Democrats Obsession With Impeachment

    Sekulow played a clip of many Democrats talking of impeaching Trump since inauguration in 2017.

    Trump Lawyer Patrick Philbin Slams the House for Breaking Rules

    Like Ken Starr, Philbin is using his time to slam the House for not giving Trump due process and therefore broke the rules.

    Philbin also lashed out at the House’s excuses not to go through the courts and process. He pointed out the process should go slow.

    He then responded with disgust towards Demmings’ argument about Trump acting guilty because it goes against our system of law. He said that there is nothing wrong with anyone asserting their rights and privilege. He pointed out that even the Supreme Court has basically said that train of thought is stupid.

    Trump Lawyer Mike Purpura: Ukraine Never Knew About the Aid Pause Until Politico Article

    Purpura used his time to remind the senators that the Ukrainian government never learned about the U.S. pausing aid to the country until a Politico article on August 28.

    He concluded that since no one, especially in the higher levels, knew about the pause then there was no leverage.

    In fact, once someone informed Zelensky, he panicked and brought it up with Vice President Mike Pence in Warsaw on September 1. Yes, even Zelensky did not know.

    Pence told Zelensky that he would like information on Zelensky’s anti-corruption reforms and how Europe could help more. In other words, Pence never mentioned investigations into the Biden family.

    Manager Rep. Hakeem Jeffries: Trump Put Our National Security Up for Sale

    Jeffries accused Trump of putting America’s national security for sale. He also said Trump’s actions already call into question the legitimacy of the 2020 election.

    Manager Rep. Val Demmings: Innocent People Don’t Hide

    Demmings claimed that “[I]nnocent people don’t try to hide every document and witness, especially those that could clear them” because “guilty people do” that.

    I’m no lawyer, but I’m thinking that if you advise your client to talk and release all the documents you won’t be in business very long.

    Also, Trump released transcripts. The left managed to twist that to fit their agenda. Why would he want to release anything else?

    How can we know that every vote will be free from foreign interference

    So why isn’t it “foreign interference” when illegals vote?

    Since they’re not Americans, they’re foreigners, by definition.

    *yawn*

    Trump in 2020!

    How can we ensure that the election will be fair? Demand voter ID and citizenship verification at every polling place.
