Trumps Legal Team “Absolutely Shredded” Schiff’s Impeachment Claim

President Trump singled out lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff while claiming victory in his Senate impeachment trial.

On Saturday, Trump’s legal team delivered the president’s defense after Democratic House impeachment managers, including Schiff, spent 24 hours highlighting their case for removing Trump from office. Trump’s defense lasted just over two hours, and much of its time was spent criticizing Schiff for his role in the process and for excluding some information from his side’s argument.

Trump ripped Schiff on Twitter Sunday morning, writing: “The Impeachment Hoax is a massive election interference the likes of which has never been seen before. In just two hours the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats have seen their phony case absolutely shredded. Shifty is now exposed for illegally making up my phone call, & more!”

He added, “Shifty Adam Schiff is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN, and probably a very sick man. He has not paid the price, yet, for what he has done to our Country!”

Schiff defended his case on Twitter following the conclusion of Trump’s legal team’s defense on Saturday. He claimed that Trump’s team tried to “deflect, distract from, and distort the truth” and demanded that further witnesses be called to testify.

While Schiff seemed confident that Trump’s legal team failed, many, including Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, found its arguments compelling. The West Virginia senator said that Trump’s defenders did a “good job” and gave him “a lot to think about.”
