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.

Jay Sekulow stood to speak before the Senate body to combine all of the president’s rage-tweets and put them in the context of legal language. There was no defense of the president’s actions, only attacks on Democrats.

It is imperative that they take advantage of it to make some fundamental changes.
