Pat Cipollone: Democrats Have ‘Violated Every Past Precedent’ and ‘All Forms of Due Process’

‘If you feel confident in your facts then why do you design a process that completely shuts out the president?’


CIPOLLONE: "They violated every past precedent. They violated all forms of due process. Now, they say that’s a process argument, and it is, but it’s more than that. It’s more than that. If you feel confident in your facts, then why do you design a process that completely shuts out the President? Why do you cook up the facts in a basement SCIF instead of in the light of day? Why do you do that? Why don’t you allow the minority to call witnesses as they’ve had — had the right to do in all past impeachments? And then they come here and say by the way, we were fully in charge, so completely in charge that we locked out the President’s counsel, denied all rights, denied the minority any witnesses at all, but when we come here, they don’t — they still don’t get witnesses. They want you not only to do their job, but to make the same mistake, the same violation of due process that they did.”
