President Donald Trump sent shock waves throughout the GOP when he announced he wanted to increase tariffs on Mexico. Trump promised that he would increase tariffs by June 10th if Mexico did not decrease the flood of immigration into the U.S.

Rubio tweeted that Trump had no other choice but to impose tariffs on Mexico.

“I don’t generally like tariffs either. But what alternative do my GOP colleagues have to get #Mexico to secure its southern border, use the Isthmus of Tehuantepec to screen northbound rail cars & vehicles & act on intel we provide on human traffickers?” he tweeted.

Cipollone told the chamber that Republicans were barred from attending depositions of witnesses in the House. As transcripts show, there were Republicans asking questions of the witnesses. Even the mention of the House depositions by the White House was pointless because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is trying to block the documents, evidence, interviews, and depositions from being entered in as evidence in the Senate trial.

Lawyers mock president’s attorneys as idiots: ‘It’s impossible to understand what they are even doing’

Published

on

President Donald Trump's impeachment trial began in earnest Tuesday as his lawyers argued how perfect his call with Ukraine was. But it was the defense lawyers that earned a lot of questions from lawyers and legal scholars online. Lawyer Jay Sekulow attacked Democrats for things they said during former President Barack Obama's administration.
