President Donald Trump's legal team wrapped up their case Tuesday afternoon with White House Counsel Pat Cipollone taking the podium during the Senate impeachment trial.

Cipollone began his closing statement by playing clips of multiple impeachment managers and senators hypocritically speaking about the abuse of impeachment back in 1998 during the Clinton impeachment proceedings.
