There’s a key phrase that Adam Schiff and Democrats have been repeating for months that is curiously missing from their articles of impeachment.
Trump’s lawyer Jay Sekulow made a point of noting this recently.
Jay Sekulow Noticed Adam Schiff Talked A Lot About One Thing That’s Not In the Articles of Impeachment
Jay Sekulow, a member of President Trump’s defense team, noted that impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) invoked the phrase “quid pro quo” when talking about Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Sekulow told reporters on Wednesday the reason why quid pro quo was noteworthy is that Trump is not being impeached on the act since it is not one of the two articles of impeachment. A majority of Democrats in the House voted to impeach Trump on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
“There’s a lot of things I’d like to rebut and we will rebut. I think we said it yesterday, first of all, you notice that Adam Schiff today talked about quid pro quo. Notice what’s not in the articles of impeachment. Allegations or accusations of quid pro quo,” Sekulow said. “That’s because they didn’t exist. So, you know, there is a lot of things we’ll rebut but we will do it in an orderly and I hope more systematic fashion.”
Watch Adam Schiff use the phrase below:
Adam Schiff is entitled to his own fairy tales, but not his own facts.
Amb. Gordon Sondland's "quid pro quo" statement fell apart under pointed GOP questioning during the House Intel Committee hearing.
He was forced to admit he was presuming things.
