The president has been denied the right to cross-examine witnesses, the right to access evidence, and the right to have counsel present at the impeachment hearings, he said.

“Senator Schumer said earlier today that the eyes of the founders are on these proceedings. Indeed, that’s true, but It is the heart of the Constitution that governs these proceedings. What we just heard, from Manager Schiff – courts have no role, privileges don’t apply, what happened in the past, we should just ignore,” Sekulow said.

“In fact, Manager Schiff just said, try to summarize my colleague’s defense of the president. He said it not in those words, of course, which is not the first time Mr. Schiff has put words into transcripts that did not exist,” Trump’s attorney said.

“Mr. Schiff also talked about a trifecta. I’ll give you a trifecta. During the proceedings that took place before the Judiciary Committee. The president was denied the right to cross-examine witnesses. The president was denied the right to access evidence, and the president was denied the right to have counsel present at hearings. That’s a trifecta – a trifecta that violates the Constitution of the United States,” he said.

This was big.

Trump’s team is off to a very strong start.
