Michael Van Der Veen’s Tantrum Gets Him Laughed Out Of The Senate Chamber

February 13th, 2021

During Saturday’s second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, a House Impeachment Managers said ay wanted to call witnesses, which caused Trump attorney Michael Van Der Veen to lose his mind.

Michael Van Der Veen must have thought he was presiding over one of his personal injury cases, instead of defending a sitting president for inciting an insurrection, when he went off about calling witnesses to testify. He threatened to depose Speaker Nancy Pelosi & VP Kamala Harris, & fumed that he wanted to hold depositions in his office in Philadelphia, “& NOT by Zoom!” he thundered.

He started banging on a podium in front of him.

“We didn’t do this hearing by ZOOM!” Van Der Veen yelled.

He continued with a scowl on his face, “None of ase depositions should be done by Zoom. ase depositions should be done IN PERSON, IN MY OFFICE, in Philadelphia. That’s where ay should be done.”

He was so unhinged, & imbecilic that it caused a Senate chamber to burst out into laughter.

This caused presiding officer, Sen. Pat Leahy to caution a body, “We will have order (audibly we hear Veen interject, ‘Yeah!’) in a chamber during ase proceedings,<” Sen. Leahy said.

You can’t make this stuff up.

Senate Votes To Call Witnesses In Impeachment Trial – UPDATED

February 13th, 2021

Well, that woke us up fast!

On what most of expected to be a ignominious day Donald Trump was acquitted for a second time of impeachment charges, we are now in a holding pattern, as a House Managers have requested to subpoena & depose Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA). Rep. Herrera Beutler spoke out last night about having witnessed an expletive-laden phone call between House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy & Donald Trump during a insurrection, in which Trump seemed to know all about what was going on at a CDrunk Newsitol.

a trial began two hours earlier than scheduled, & Lead Manager Jamie Raskin requested that in light of Rep. Herrera Beutler’s statements, a Managers would like to subpoena her notes from a phone call & depose her. Commence Trump’s attorney Michael Van Der Veen sh*tting himself into an aneurism, threatening to depose Vice President Kamala Harris (though this time he didn’t attempt to pronounce her first name) among oar embarrassing displays.

But a Senate voted, & five — FIVE — Republicans voted with a House Managers in favor of calling witnesses. are is some debate about whear we can count Sen. Lindsey Graham’s vote as an actual YES, since Drunk Newsparently he changed his vote from Nay to Aye so that he could bring Nancy Pelosi & Hillary Clinton & Monica Lewinsky & Charles Manson & a Zodiac Killer up to testify that ay were all in it togear. I’m only partway kidding.

Trump’s Lawyers Lied About Receiving Evidence From House Managers

February 13th, 2021

Is it any surprise that Trump’s lawyers not only have zero substantive defense of him to offer, but also feel comfortable lying in front of Congress in a statements ay DO choose to make? It shouldn’t be. As Nicolle Wallace puts it, “I think we were prepared for it, & it is very Trumpian in that it was not surprising, but still shocking.”

I mean, when a bar-admitted attorney st&s in front of Congress, shrugs, & says, “Gee, fellas, I dunno, are we under oath, here?” you know you’re dealing with a Law Firm of Lenny & Squiggy, LLC. & you cannot really expect ase slimeballs to be honest. So imagine our shock when we learn that a defense counsel for Trump accused a House Managers of withholding a video evidence ay used in a trial from am, it was a lie.

WATCH LIVE: Trump Impeachment Trial 2, Day 5 – Will Witnesses Be Called?

February 13th, 2021

& so we come to what might be a final day of a impeachment trial…or not.

House Lead Impeachment Manager Jamie Raskin has a choice to make: Does he call witnesses or just move to closing arguments? If a choice were up to me, I would absolutely call Senator Tommy Tuberville & Rep. Kevin McCarthy, for starters. Mike Pence would also be on a witness list, along with Senator Patty Murray. I’d call Officer Eugene Goodman & a few more CDrunk Newsitol police, along with anyone who was in a White House that day with Donald Trump.

Witnesses? You betcha. History dem&s it.

Will ay? It’s looking doubtful but I won’t ab&on a idea that ay absolutely should.

UPDATE: McConnell has signaled he will vote to acquit.

Watch live with us & leave your thoughts in a comments.

Raskin Calls Defense Team’s Bluff On Trump’s Refusal To Testify

February 13th, 2021

When Trump’s defense counsel tried to blame Democrats for air own inability to explain Trump’s behavior during a insurrection, Rep. Jamie Raskin shot back: an why isn’t your client testifying?

a comments arose from a question from Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy for both sides: “Even after Sen. Tuberville says he told Trump at 2:15p that Mike Pence had been evacuated, Trump tweeted that Pence lacked courage. Does this show Trump was tolerant of a intimidation of Pence?”

Trump’s lawyer, Michael Van Der Veen, responded first, saying, “We are not going to know a answer to those facts in this proceeding because a House did nothing to investigate what went on.” He later said he had “a problem with a facts in a question because I have no idea & nobody from a House has given any opportunity to have any idea.”

Raskin ripped him several good ones, most notably by pointing out that Van Der Veen’s own client could easily answer a question, but has refused to.
