Now that the impeachment trial has ended opening arguments and has been proceeding with questions from the Senators, which is also wrapping up, we may be nearing the end of it all.
But I think we need to take a minute to really appreciate the brilliance of how the President's legal team ended their arguments.
Pat Cipollone made a very smart play and used the Democrats' own words against them.
Red State reported, one of the things that made their presentation light years better than that of the House Democratic managers and the bloviating of folks like House Intel Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) was the simple, straight forward way they made their presentation, appealing to facts, logic and the Constitution.
Pat Cipollone exemplified that again today as he closed in a brilliant way. He noted the basic fact that Democrats sought to obscure – that the case and the articles of impeachment they’ve put forth don’t meet the constitutional standard for impeachment. That the Democratic articles are dangerous, because they are not what the Framers intended impeachment to be. Cipollone said that if you looked to the words of the past that they were true then and they’re true now. He then played the words of Democrats including present impeachment managers inveighing against partisan impeachment in 1998.
“You were right,” Cipollone said. “But I’m sorry to say you were also prophetic. And I think I couldn’t say it better so I wouldn’t. You know what the right answer is in your heart. You know what the right answer is for our country. You know what the right answer is for the American people.”
To me, this was a death blow to the Democrats. They are now guilty of doing the very thing they were speaking against in 1998 during the Clinton impeachment.
