Schiff thanks senators at the start of impeachment argument after Nadler accused Republicans of 'voting for a cover up'

Schiff thanks senators at the start of impeachment argument after Nadler accused Republicans of 'voting for a cover up'Democrats officially kicked off their opening arguments in the impeachment trial of President Trump Wednesday with a bit of a shift in tone after one particularly contentious late-night exchange.Near the end of an impeachment trial session beginning Tuesday, House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) on the Senate floor accused Republican senators of "voting for a cover up" as he argued in favor of an amendment to subpoena former National Security Adviser John Bolton, per The Wall Street Journal. Nadler also suggested Republicans were engaging in "treacherous" behavior, The Washington Post reports. Republicans throughout the day on Wednesday slammed Nadler for his statement; Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) told CNN it was "insulting and outrageous," while Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said the comment "offended her" and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said in a press conference, "To my Democratic colleagues, you can say what you want about me but I am covering up nothing."Following this criticism, House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) began Democrats' opening arguments Wednesday with a less combative tone, thanking senators for having "paid attention to every word and argument you heard from both sides" the day before."I want to begin today by thanking you for the conduct of the proceedings yesterday and for inviting your patience as you go forward," Schiff added. "We have some very long days yet to come."CNN's Kaitlan Collins noted Schiff appeared to be addressing Republican criticism with his opening comments, although Republicans weren't the only ones not thrilled with the tone of Tuesday night's debate. Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), for instance, conceded to The Washington Post that Nadler "could have chose better words."More stories from theweek.com 1 dead, 7 injured after downtown Seattle shooting incident Several senators left the chamber in the middle of Adam Schiff's impeachment remarks Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee advise GOP senators to save themselves, subpoena Trump's secrets

Gohmert Melts Down on House Floor After Nadler Accuses Him of Spouting ‘Russian Propaganda’

Gohmert Melts Down on House Floor After Nadler Accuses Him of Spouting ‘Russian Propaganda’The U.S. House’s impeachment debate took a dramatic turn on Wednesday afternoon when Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) stormed back to the dais to shout at Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) after he accused the Texas lawmaker of peddling “Russian propaganda.”During his floor speech, Gohmert—a fervent defender of the president—groused that the impeachment of President Donald Trump was really an effort by Democrats to “stop the investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice and Ukraine into the corruption of Ukraine interference in the U.S. election in 2016.”“This is a travesty, We’re in big trouble” Gohmert huffed, adding: “Now it’s lowered even further, the bar. [Impeachment] will be used for political battles and this country’s end is now in sight. I hope I don’t live to see it. This is an outrage.”After Gohmert wrapped up his speech, Nadler took a moment to chastise the Texas lawmaker before yielding his time to a Democratic congressman.“I’m deeply concerned that any member of the house would spout Russian propaganda on the floor of the House,” the judiciary chair sternly said, prompting Gohmert to run back to the podium.Pointing his finger at Nadler, the Texas congressman yelled and demanded that the chairman’s words be stricken from the record. Nadler, for his part, appeared to not react to or indulge Gohmert’s angry outburst.Last month, it was reported that the intelligence community had briefed senators and their aides that Russia has engaged in a lengthy campaign to frame Ukraine for Russia’s 2016 election interference and hacking. The briefing basically aligned with Dr. Fiona Hill’s impeachment testimony in which she criticized Republicans for pushing a “fictional narrative” about Ukrainian meddling.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
