Republican Representative, Jim Jordan has said that thanks to the opening statements made by President Trump’s defense team on Saturday, Americans finally got to hear “two hours of truth.” Which implies that everything else we have heard thus far – two full days of presentations by the House Democrats – has been nothing else but a pack of lies.
“Two hours of truth beats over 20 hours of presumptions, assumptions and hearsay,” said Jordan.
On Sunday, the Ohio lawmaker – who has been called President Trump’s bulldog — took a shot at the Democrats’ case. He said they relied heavily on Ambassador Gordon Sondland’s testimony, which they referred to twice as much as any other witness’s account.
Jordan stated that Sondland had no evidence to back any of his claims and admitted he was just presuming. He also pointed out that the ambassador had to revise his testimony to clarify several of his statements.
Jordan then went on to say that President Trump’s defense team has a “bulletproof” case because the facts are on their side. “As we’ve said all along, the president’s case is so strong on constitutional grounds, so strong on the fact that he was denied due process in the House, and most importantly, those four facts that are on his side will never change,” he said.
Jordan said the Senate will work to end the trial as soon as possible so Congress can get back to working for the American people.
