Schiff not pleased that “44 Republican Senators still voted to avoid a trial, rather than confront the facts”

Moments ago, Rep. Adam Schiff, who was the impeachment manager for President Trump’s first impeachment trial heaped praise on Jamie Raskin, the current impeachment manager.

Schiff tweeted:

The House Managers’ opening statement was flawless and irrefutable.

A seamless weaving of powerful video, Constitutional arguments, and history.

@RepRaskin’s emotional appeal moved anyone not made of stone.

Hard to imagine a more perfect presentation.

In a separate tweet, Schiff expressed that he was not pleased that 44 Republican Senators voted that Trump impeachment is unconstitutional.

The defense case was weak and convoluted, to say the least.

Yet 44 Republican Senators still voted to avoid a trial, rather than confront the facts.

But there is no hiding from our Constitutional duty.

If we condone, excuse or shield Trump’s misconduct, we invite it again.
