Trump lawyers argue impeachment based on 'hatred,' not facts

Trump lawyers argue impeachment based on 'hatred,' not facts | 12 Feb 2021 | Donald Trump's impeachment lawyers accused Democrats of waging a campaign of "hatred" against the former president as they sped through their defense of his actions and fiery words before the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, hurtling the Senate toward a final vote in his historic [show] trial. The defense team vigorously denied on Friday that Trump had incited the deadly riot and said his encouragement of followers to "fight like hell" at a rally that preceded it was routine political speech.

"This is ordinarily political rhetoric that is virtually indistinguishable from the language that has been used by people across the political spectrum for hundreds of years," declared Trump lawyer Michael van der Veen. "Countless politicians have spoken of fighting for our principles."

CNN Repeatedly Claimed Capitol Officer Sicknick Died Due to a Fire Extinguisher Hit. They've Quietly Admitted That May Not Be True

CNN Repeatedly Claimed Capitol Officer Sicknick Died Due to a Fire Extinguisher Hit. They've Quietly Admitted That May Not Be True | 06 Feb 2021 | CNN quietly snuck out a report this week, without posting the story to their homepage and barely covering the news on air.
