Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer projected an air of confidence tonight as he walked through the Capitol after the trial concluded for the day, saying he believes the push for witnesses and documents “gains every day.”
“The fact that gives me some real hope here is that the public now is strongly on our side for a fair trial,” Schumer said, adding that he believes that would include hearing from witnesses like John Bolton and others.
Schumer praised Schiff’s argument as “one of the 10 best speeches I've heard.”
“I watched the Republicans. And most of the time they're sitting there to their credit. They don't want to hear it. So they're looking the other way their heads are down,” Schumer said. “But for the last half hour, they were glued to him.”
