Nick Kangadis | February 3, 2020


During closing arguments at the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump on Monday, lead attorney for Trump's defense Jay Sekulow showed a montage of Democrats calling for Trump's impeachment beginning before the president was even inaugurated.

"This entire campaign of impeachment, that started from the very first day that the president was inaugurated, was a partisan one,” Sekulow said. “And it should never happen again. For three years, this push for impeachment came straight from the president’s opponents and when it finally reached a crescendo it put this body, the United States Senate, into a horrible position."

Sekulow then showed a January 20, 2017 Washington Post article, which was published less than half an hour after Trump was sworn into office, before showing the Senate multiple clips of Democratic members of Congress calling for the impeachment of Trump.

Following the video presentation, Sekulow spoke briefly about the "whistleblower's" attorney, Mark Zaid. MRCTV reported on Zaid's own impeachment bias against Trump in October and November 2019.

Here's the tweet Sekulow used, which Zaid sent out 10 days after Trump took was inaugurated:
