CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS: This last hour and a half was supposed to be about whether to subpoena documents from the Office of Management and Budget, but particularly in the closing statement by Adam Schiff there was no discussion of that.
I think that’s pretty smart on the part of the Democrats, they are taking this time to, in effect, make their opening argument, to make the case against the president, to make the case for why the Senate needs to hear from more witnesses, more evidence, and I think to some degree that the White House lawyers are making a mistake.
They are basically saying, there’s nothing to see here, all of this is bogus, while the House managers are taking every second of their one hour to make whatever case they want to make. I’d be very curious to see what the White House lawyers use. My bet is it wasn’t even half an hour. And this is being watched by millions of people on the three cable channels, I don’t know why you wouldn’t take the time and every second you have to make an argument on behalf of the president.
If I were the President watching this, I would not be especially pleased.
FOX News anchor Chris Wallace said Wednesday during impeachment trial coverage that White House lawyers are making a mistake by making their defense “there’s nothing to see here.”
