House impeachment manager Joe Neguse went through the reasons he believes that former President Trump and his legal team have offered up “distractions” during the impeachment trial, including claims of the denial of due process.
“We had a full presentation of evidence, adversarial presentations, motions. The President was invited to testify. He declined. The President was invited to provide exculpatory evidence. He declined. You can't claim there's no due process when you won't participate in the process,” Neguse said in his closing argument.
“We know this case isn't one that requires a complicated legal analysis. You all lived it. The managers and I, we lived it. Our country lived it," he said.
Neguse also mentioned Trump’s defense presenting a video compilation of Democratic lawmakers using words like “fight.”
“What you will not find in those video montages that they showed you is any of those speeches, those remarks, culminating in a violent insurrection on our nation's Capitol,” Neguse said. “That’s the difference.”
