GOP's ‘Drug Deal' for Trump Keeps Bolton From Testifying About Him
Alex Wong/GettyHowever the Senate trial turns out, it is immensely gratifying to know that the see-no-evil, hear-no-evil, speak-no-evil Republicans were pinned in their seats for two hours and 20 minutes with only flat water, bubbly water, or milk to drink on Wednesday afternoon as House manager Adam Schiff, with the skill of a practiced trial lawyer, outlined the case against Donald John Trump. 

He may be "shifty Schiff" to Donald Trump and his allies, but any fair-minded impeachment watcher will tell you that Schiff did a masterful job detailing the building blocks of Trump's corruption with regard to Ukraine, the lies he told along the way, the cast of enablers who sought to hide the truth—and finally, the public servants who came forward to testify about what they witnessed. 

Schiff presented enough evidence to rebut the White House argument that the House managers had a weak case. He put to bed any notion of the quick dismissal GOP leader McConnell might have once envisioned. But for all the Democrats' success and skill in presenting their case, getting witnesses and documents that would totally nail Trump remain just out of reach.

Biggie Smalls Was in the House Before the Senate
via CSPAN/YouTubeThe memory of murdered rapper Biggie Smalls was manifestly in the house—the House of Representatives—three years before it was more subtly invoked in the Senate.

Back on March 9, 2017, three representatives took separate opportunities on the House floor to make the 20th anniversary of Biggie's still unsolved slaying. 

The first two, Rep. Stacey Plaskett of the Virgin Islands and Rep. Yvette Clarke of New York, both quoted the best-known refrain from "Juicy," the autobiographical hit song in which Biggie describes his rise from small time crack dealer to hip-hop megastar, from street life to sweet life.

Dems: Convict Trump or ‘Write the History of Our Decline with Our Own Hand'
Photo Illustration by Lyne Lucien/The Daily Beast/GettyHouse Democrats opened their case to remove President Trump from office by imploring the same Senate Republicans who have stood in lockstep with the White House that they're the only ones who can save American democracy.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the House intelligence committee chairman turned lead impeachment manager, began his side's arguments with an appeal to history. He bookended his recitation of Trump's pressure campaign to suborn Ukraine into aiding his reelection with references to Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, Tom Paine, Benjamin Franklin and name checked any other member of the Founding Generation—his colleague Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) later added James Madison—who could help contextualize the constitutional obligation Schiff said senators have when faced with "a man who would be a king."

It's likely the only play Schiff, Jeffries and their fellow Democratic impeachment managers have. The unyielding political reality they confront is that only with the assent of 20 Republican senators, practically a third of the entire GOP Senate conference, will Trump be removed from office. Even convincing enough of those Republican senators to vote for hearing new evidence in the trial—just four are needed—is viewed as a tall order for Democrats.

Trump's Lawyers are Lying About the Meaning of Impeachment
Oliver Douliery/GettyAs Donald Trump brags about rigging his own impeachment trial, since "Honestly, we have all the material. They don't have the material," his lawyers are lying about what impeachment is and who's doing the rigging. 

The first argument of their brief to the Senate, signed by Trump's personal lawyer Jay Sekulow and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, is that the impeachment lacked due process and was "rigged." Specifically, they say on page one, "the process that brought the articles here violated every precedent and every principle of fairness followed impeachment inquiries for more than 150 years."

Overall, in a 110 page brief, they make this claim on 43 pages (1, 4-8, 21-23, 37-42, 46-47, 53-54, 55-80). They say the "rigged" process justifies the White House's refusal to comply with subpoenas for documents, key officials' refusal to testify on the grounds of executive privilege, and the withholding of evidence that Trump bragged about today.
