Saturday’s abbreviated impeachment hearing was the first time President Trump’s legal team was able to have the Senate floor all to themselves during opening arguments, and the liberal media were not happy about it. All three of the broadcast networks used their evening newscasts to decry and whine about the arguments Trump’s legal team were making.
“Tonight, President Trump's legal team didn't even warm up, opening their defense straight to the point,” ABC special correspondent Kyra Phillips began her World News Tonight report. She then complained that Trump lawyer Pat Cipollone was “getting personal, attacking lead House manager Adam Schiff, going after his summary of the President's phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky at the center of it all.”
Schiff’s “summary” of the phone call? That was some major spin from Phillips in order to obfuscate the fact that Schiff had opened up the impeachment hearings by reading from his totally fabricated transcript of the call.
