The Democrats would have America believe that the impeachment trial of Donald Trump is about justice and “doing the right thing.”
However, the lawyers for the former president are exposing a more nefarious purpose.
“Instead of acting to heal the nation, or at the very least focusing on prosecuting the lawbreakers who stormed the Capitol, the Speaker of the House and her allies have tried to callously harness the chaos of the moment for their own political gain,” says the brief submitted by Trump’s attorneys.
According to Fox News, Trump’s lawyers argued that the “Democrats’ effort to convict the president in an impeachment trial after he’s left office is ‘political theater,’ and that the trial is outside of the Senate’s constitutional authority.”
