Shortly after they slimed President Trump’s legal team with accusations they weren’t behaving like lawyers, CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell aired portions of a sit-down interview she did with four of the Democratic impeachment managers from the House. The Tuesday segment was little more than an opportunity to give Democrats extra time to make their case against the President, as O’Donnell lobbed softball after softball their way.
The video portion of the report began not with a question but back-to-back soundbites of Congresswomen Val Demings (D-FL) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) going off on Senate Republicans:
REP. VAL DEMINGS (D-FL): I expect not only leader McConnell, but every member of the Senate who’s taken two oaths, their oath when they were sworn into office and the oath of impartiality, I expect them to take those oaths very seriously and do their job. We want a fair trial.
REP. ZOE LOFGREN (D-CA): When the senators swore impartial justice, they swore to God that they would give impartial justice. And I think that should mean something to them.
That was followed up with a friendly question to Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA). “Chairman, is your committee still investigating, and are you hoping to introduce new evidence during this trial,” she asked.
