Wednesday on CNN’s New Day, Sen. Dick Durbin said he heard his GOP colleagues express their “disappointment” in the Trump legal team during the Senate impeachment trial of former President Trump, noting that they “expected a spirited defense” of Trump “and it didn’t happen.”
Asked what he had heard from Republicans, Durbin replied, “Disappointment. They really expected a spirited defense of the president, and it didn’t happen… I was taking notes — I have a good seat, you know — and I’m right in front there, and I wanted to take notes to follow, and I just gave up on Mr. Castor. I couldn’t understand his line of thinking. Maybe he was the good cop, and Mr. Schoen was the bad cop? That’s the best I can come up with. And I will just say that Schoen’s presentation, heavy on rhetoric and heavy on research in some respects, you just can’t stand up in front of a group like that and just read for an hour and expect to make an impact.”
“I really believe that the House managers did a professional job,” Durbin continued. “The video was just an amazing piece of work to start this. And the arguments they made were understandable. Whether you agreed with them or not, they were easy to understand.”
Naturally, Durbin wants to paint a picture of Republican pessimism and an incompetent legal team in contrast to Democrat “professionalism.” And naturally, CNN serves this propaganda up without an opposing viewpoint. Because the impeachment is a partisan sham and the left knows it.
