GOP claim Ukraine felt ‘no pressure’ shredded by Adam Schiff during impeachment trial
Rep. Adam Schiff

The lead House impeachment manager fact-checked Republicans during opening arguments in the prosecution of President Donald Trump.


Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who chairs the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, reminded the Senate of the actual evidence that refutes the GOP talking point.

Schiff noted the testimony, emails and text messages that show Ukraine felt enormous pressure to go along with the quid pro quo.

The former federal prosecutor shouted, "they're at war!"

Schiff said it was "$400 million worth of pressure."
