BREAKING: Trump Legal Aides Respond to Impeachment Trial


However, the president’s lawyer didn’t stop there. Shortly thereafter, Cipollone noted the right of the American people to determine whether or not Trump remains president for another four years.

The following excerpt is a portion of remarks that Cipollone shared before the Senate body earlier today:

“The American people decide elections. They have one coming up in nine months. They’re asking you to do something that no Senate has ever done and they’re asking you to do it with no evidence. That’s wrong.”

The president’s legal counsel has not completed their defense, not by a longshot. Other attorneys for Trump will weigh in with additional remarks next week.

The Overall Consensus of the American People

Multiple polls have shown the decline of support for impeachment as time goes on. Many Americans are sick of the process altogether; nevertheless, outlooks and perceptions on impeachment proceedings are heavily partisan. With very few exceptions, many individuals on the left are all for it, wanting nothing more than Trump out of office.
