‘Come on, Barry’: GOP counsel whines after Dem attorney refuses to hear his excuses on Trump’s Ukraine bribery

Published

on

Opposing counsel for Democrats and Republicans faced off at a House impeachment hearing on Monday.

Republican counsel Stephen Castor, who appeared as a witness, complained that he was not being asked enough questions by Democratic counsel Barry Berke.

During questioning of a Democratic counsel, Berke noted that President Donald Trump was more concerned about personal gain than corruption in telephone calls with Ukraine’s president.

“May I add something there?” Castor asked.

“No, you can’t,” Berke replied.

“Are you not going to let him answer?” one Republican member cried out.

“No!” Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said as he repeatedly brought down the gavel.

“The time is the questioner’s and he can ask questions to whoever he wants,” Nadler proclaimed.

“And Mr. Castor, you’ll be able to answer questions asked by minority counsel,” Berke added.

“Come on, Barry,” Castor whined. “In fairness here, President Trump talks about very bad people.”

At that point, Castor conceded the floor to Berke, who was allowed to finish his questioning of the Democratic witness.

On Thursday, during the third day of the impeachment trial, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) walked senators through the timeline of actions carried out by President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

"We've walked through some of the timeline of the actions and statements about Ukraine, but let's just line them up briefly because it makes the story so clear," said Lofgren. "April 2019. Vice President Biden officially announced his campaign for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination. And a reminder, at the time of Biden's announcement and for months after, public polling, including from Fox News, showed that Biden would beat President Trump. The Fox News polling data is up on the chart."

WATCH: House Dem trolls Trump at impeachment by citing a Fox News poll showing him getting crushed by Biden

Published

on

Rep. Sylvia Garcia (D-TX) on Thursday used a Fox News poll to establish President Donald Trump's motive for wanting to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden during the Senate impeachment trial.

In arguing that Trump's sole motivation for requesting that the Ukrainian government investigate Biden was to help with his own reelection campaign, she showed polls from the president's favorite cable news network that showed him getting absolutely crushed by the former vice president.

"The chart on the screen shows a Fox News poll emphasizing... that from March through December, Vice President Biden had consistently led President Trump in national polls by significant margins," she said. "Beginning around March, Vice President Biden is beating the president in polls, even on Fox News. In April, Biden officially announces his candidacy, and... that is when the president gets worried."

Rick Santorum flails wildly after CNN panel busts him for excusing Trump’s misconduct

Published

on

Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum on Thursday flailed wildly after a group of his fellow CNN panelists nailed him for excusing President Donald Trump's impeachable misconduct.

During a panel discussion about Republican Senators' unwillingness to call witnesses to Trump's impeachment trial, Santorum argued that additional witnesses weren't needed because Trump eventually released military aid to Ukraine after he got caught withholding it. Santorum also argued that the Senate should give Trump a pass even if he did shake down the Ukrainian government to hurt the campaign of former Vice President Joe Biden.
