Lawyers representing former President Donald Trump demolished the Charlottesville “very fine people” hoax on Friday in his Senate impeachment trial, playing the full video in which Trump said neo-Nazis should be “condemned totally.”

House impeachment managers played a selectively-edited video of Trump’s 2017 remark on Thursday, repeating a false claim that Trump had referred to murderous neo-Nazi rioters as “very fine people.” Lead House impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) tried to argue that Trump had encouraged or condoned violence by his supporters.

But Trump defense lawyer David Schoen destroyed that claim:

There’s that famous quote, like one of the house managers said, “A lie will travel halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to put its shoes on.” Well, this lie traveled around the world a few times, and made its way into the Biden campaign talking points, and ended up on the Senate floor. The Charlottesville lie, “very fine people on both sides.” Except that isn’t all he said, and they knew it then, and they know it now. Watch this.

He then played the full video: ...

U.S. Senate
He concluded: “This might be today the first time the news networks played those full remarks in the context. And how many times have you heard President Trump has never denounced white supremacists? Now you in America know the truth.”

Schoen also noted that the House impeachment managers had manipulated other evidence, which would ordinarily be such a severe violation of the rules that it would expose them to disciplinary sanctions by a court.

They acquitted Trump because they didn't want more exposure forced onto the public record and forcibly broadcast by mendacious MSM. Witnesses and cross examination would have been priceless. "And Madam Pelosi, exactly what part of the Constitution would that be? Apparently we are referring to different documents."

mendacious


Had to look it up.

Pretty much the definition of the MSM.

Hard to believe people still believed this lie. With access to information at your fingertips nearly instantly, the only conclusion is that people simply wish to remain ignorant and programmed.

Yes, they want to believe it.

It makes them feel good to think they Trump was some monster they defeated, instead of an actual representative of American working people against the elite.

This sums it up well:

Every person on the left believes they just survived the parallel to the rise of Nazism in Germany and they defeated it.
They stopped it.
They believe all Republicans are 1950's white racists.
They feel empowered to live out their Civil Rights warrior fantasies.

Do a Google search on "impeachment fine people hoax" and see how the Fake News and at least one search engine have "disappeared" the biggest story in the country.
Breitbart was the biggest publication to do the story. Google hides them.
This is happening right in front of us.
