That’s it! Stop the impeachment trial and remove President Trump now because Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) was on the verge of tears! That was essentially the reaction CNN had to Schiff’s final words in Thursday’s session. CNN Tonight host Don Lemon touted how the proceedings adjourned with “A very emotional closing there from the lead impeachment manager, Adam Schiff saying, ‘Right matters. Truth matters. Otherwise, we are lost.’ Getting choked up there.”
After introducing his panel, Lemon turned to former Nixon White House lawyer John Dean and began to gush about how “amazing” it was “to watch Adam Schiff through all of this.”
Adding: “The House impeachment managers, all of them doing very well to present their case. But to watch Adam Schiff become emotional and to present his arguments, it has really been a thing to watch, I think.”
Dean agreed completely. “And it was very convincing. It's overwhelming evidence. It's awfully hard for anybody who listens and follows this to just brush it off,” he proclaimed.
In addressing CNN legal analyst Laura Coates, Lemon claimed he had spent part of the day watching “conservative commentators.”
