Despite talking for 24 hours in the Senate impeachment trial, Democrats failed to mention key evidence, because they know facts aren’t on the side, President Donald Trump defense attorney Pat Cipollone said in opening statements Saturday as Trump’s defense began arguments.

Cipollone promised that Trump’s attorneys would present the evidence that Democrats omitted, and said that those watching should ask: “Why am I just hearing about this now, after 24 hours of sitting through arguments?”:

“The fact that they came here, for 24 hours, and hid evidence from you, is further evidence that they don’t really believe in the facts of their case.”

"Today, we are going to confront them on the merits of their argument. Now they have the burden of proof and they have not come close to meeting it," Cipollone said.

The Democrats – not President Trump – are actually the ones trying “to perpetrate the most massive interference in an election in American history,” Cipollone said:

“That this is, for all their talk about election interference, that they’re here to perpetrate the most massive interference in an election in American history. And, we cannot allow that to happen.

“It would violate our constitution. It would violate our history. It would violate our obligations to the future. And, most importantly, it would violate the sacred trust the American people have placed in you and have place in them.

“The American people decide elections.”
