CNN’s Lemon: You’d Have To Ignore a Lot of Facts To Believe GOP’s Defense

‘You’d have to ignore the transcript of the president’s infamous July 25th Ukraine call’

RUSH EXCERPT:

LEMON: “Over and done for me. He says it’s secondhand information and it’s hearsay. Let’s not forget, Linda Tripp’s testimony in the Clinton impeachment was hearsay and didn’t stop Republicans like him from voting to impeach and impeaching Bill Clinton. Anyway, this isn’t a criminal trial. It’s an impeachment inquiry so that is irrelevant and it’s just irrelevant. But Lindsey Graham says that he is done with it after one day. Sounds like hiding your head in the sand to me because you’d have to ignore a whole lot of evidence to buy what Republicans are arguing. That there is no there, there. And I’m going to take you through it. So let’s start with the most obvious evidence that you would have to ignore, okay? You’d have to ignore the transcript of the president’s infamous July 25th Ukraine call. Right after president zelensky says that he liked to buy more anti-missiles from the United States, the president of the United States, President Trump, says, I would like you to do us a favor, though.””I would like you to do us a favor, though.”
