Zerlina Maxwell on Impeachment: ‘We Have to Stand Up Agree that the Facts Are Not in Dispute’

‘We have to agree with what our eyes are seeing’

EXCERPT:

MAXWELL: "Right, and also it’s worse because we’re dealing with national security. And I think that this particular moment in American history is one where we actually have to stand up and agree that the facts are not in dispute. We have to agree with what our eyes are seeing despite the fact that Trump famously has said, you know, don’t believe what — what you see with your eyes and what you hear with your ears. We know what the facts in this case are. The question that’s before the Senate at the trial is whether or not this is worthy of removing the President from office. And that, I think, is a question for all Americans because do you think your President should be able to violate the law and get away with it? Do you think your President should be able to try to thwart the will of the people by interfering in the upcoming election? Do you think that’s okay? That’s a question that I think the American people can tell their senators and their elected officials what they think on this question, as well."
