Trump Impeachment Lawyer Reveals Part of Defense Plan, and It Is Brilliant
By Matt Margolis Feb 06, 2021
While the primary defense Trump’s legal defense teams plans to use at his upcoming Senate impeachment trial next week will be that the Senate lacks jurisdiction, on Friday night, President Trump’s impeachment lawyer Bruce Castor revealed that part of Trump’s defense will include videos of Democrats encouraging political violence. He described the defense to Laura Ingraham on Fox News.
“There’s a lot of tape of cities burning and courthouses being attacked and federal agents being assaulted by rioters in the streets, cheered on by Democrats throughout the country, and many of them in Washington using really the most inflammatory rhetoric that’s possible to use,” Castor pointed out before noting that Democrats were not accused on inciting that violence, yet Trump is on video stating clearly that he wanted people to march peacefully to the Capitol.
“You better be careful what you wish for,” Castor said of the Democrats.
Democrats plan to use video of Trump as evidence that he incited the violence at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, and Ingraham asked Castor if there would be a dueling video showing Democrats in Congress calling for political violence. “Will you then respond with Maxine Waters, a number of other Democrat officials not speaking out about the Antifa and other extremist rallies over the last summer?” Ingraham asked.
