Cruz has a query for each side.

The Home managers spent quarter-hour to articulate a brand new customary for incitement. Is that this new customary derived from the legal code or any Supreme Court docket case? Additionally, enable me to recycle the protection lies about Vice President Harris.

Raskin says he’s not acquainted with the assertion from Harris, which is in any case irrelevant to the proceedings at hand. On this case, we’ve got nothing to match Trump’s actions to as a result of it’s unprecedented, so the usual is being set. Trump and his attorneys are arguing that what he did was simply nice. The Home impeachment managers are attempting to stop this from being repeated. That’s the purpose right here.

Van der Veen telegraphs precisely how coordinated with Cruz this query was, throughout considered one of Cruz’ visits to the protection attorneys, and provides the precise authorized citations Cruz wished. However after all this isn’t a legal continuing, and this entire reply is outrageously dishonest.
