Trump lawyer needles 2020 Dems on Senate floor: ‘You should be in Iowa right now’


President Trump’s lead attorney took a shot Tuesday at the Democratic senators who have been forced to take time off the campaign trail, as they vie for their party’s presidential nomination, in order to attend the Senate impeachment trial.

In a rebuke to Democrats’ comments about how Trump’s action would be viewed by the Constitution’s framers, White House Counsel Pat Cipollone derided what he called a “partisan impeachment” and mocked the 2020 presidential hopefuls in the Senate for wanting to be campaigning rather than in Washington, D.C.

“Talk about the framers’ worst nightmare; it’s a partisan impeachment that they’ve delivered to your doorstep in an election year,” Cipollone said. “Some of you are upset because you should be in Iowa right now.” MORE

  1. As the democrat Senators running for President have already stated President Trump is guilty & should be removed from office are they not prejudiced in this impeachment case? Having already taken a position before hearing evidence & directly benefiting if President Trump is removed from office, these democrat senators should not be allowed a vote in these impeachment proceedings.

  2. This “impeachment” trial in the Senate is just one more divisive wedge the Democrats are driving into an already irreconcilably divided nation.

    It would be an embarrassment for the United States if it weren’t so potentially deadly for it. The Democrats don’t want to see our nation continue as a successful and united nation, they want everything it has ever stood for to be destroyed forever. They have been pushing this direction for decades now and are achieving an ever increasing number of successes at it, this “impeachment” being one of their latest and largest.

    This will not be finding a good, or maybe even peaceful, ending for anyone.

    Be prepared for what it will be bringing to us as it plays out.

  3. …the problem with a revolution is that no one tells you when to start.

    Unless they remove or harm out President.

    THEN, it’s time to start…

  4. russia and china are building wealth.

    the US is throwing it’s wealth down shitholes. our wealth is dissipating.

    That’s all you need to know.

  5. Any Senators who are running against Trump should RECUSE THEMSELVES as they are not impartial jurors

    How can they vote honestly for a man whose job they want?

  6. “I’m coming up with innovative ideas which include Skyping in, sending my husband, he’s a good campaigner. My daughter.”

    IOW, campaigning like Hillary. How’d that work out, Amy? I’d be really pissed at Pelosi & Company if I were you.
