Today marks the end of the House impeachment managers’ presentation of their case before the U.S. Senate.
On today’s Jay Sekulow Live, we discussed this week’s ongoing impeachment trial in the Senate and President Trump’s historic appearance at the March for Life.
As we’ve mentioned several times this week, both Jay Sekulow and Jordan Sekulow are in Washington, taking part in the Senate impeachment trial in their private capacities as part of President Trump’s legal team.
ACLJ Executive Director Jordan Sekulow called in from just off the Senate floor today right before the impeachment trial resumed:
Today the President makes history by being the first president to attend in person the March for Life and speak at the event. There have been Presidents that have sent videos before and vice-presidents who have attended before.
I’m inside the U.S. Senate, right outside the chamber with some of the President’s legal team. We are preparing for the final day of the opening statement of the House Democrat managers. They’re going to be focusing today on the second article of impeachment. They have about seven and a half hours left. That second article is, of course, the obstruction of Congress by basically going to court; which is pretty scary when you think about the fact that if we have disputes as Americans and we want to settle them amicably with a neutral party, utilizing the judiciary is part of the right of being an American. It is also a role that is played by the federal judiciary, specifically, when the other two co-equal branches of government are in conflict. The judiciary can be a neutral arbiter of that conflict. You’re not obstructing anything just by going to court. The obstruction would be if the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately ruled that you must do this or must do that and you still didn’t do it. That would be obstructing the judiciary and legislative.
Here, they are arguing that by just utilizing the right to go to court, you are obstructing the law and obstructing Congress and that it is an impeachable offense.
ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow also joined the show via phone for a brief moment:
As Jordan just told you, we are about an hour away from going back on the floor. This is the last day of the House managers’ presentation of the impeachment articles. We will begin our defense tomorrow, probably tomorrow morning. I don’t think it’s going to go all day; we don’t know that yet. It’ll probably pick up again on Monday. We will start laying out the case in defense of the President, but also pointing out what was wrong in what the House managers put forward. We appreciate everybody praying. We appreciate everybody staying engaged, obviously a lot going on.
We also played sound of President Trump addressing the March for Life. It was truly an historic moment as he became the first sitting President to attend the March in person.
You can listen to the entire episode, including analysis of the impeachment trial and President Trump’s historic and unprecedented appearance at the March for Life by ACLJ Director of Policy Harry Hutchison and me, here.
