We're now onto Val Demings. It would appear that each House impeachment manager is an *expert* in one aspect of Trump's international bribery scheme.
Put another way, Val Demings is who Mike Pompeo will be having nightmares about.
Val Demings: “As a career law enforcement officer, I have never seen anyone take such extreme steps to hide evidence allegedly proving his innocence.”
Rep. Val Demings, up for her first time as House impeachment manager, argues in favor of Schumer's latest amendment.
Speaking of the blanket refusal to share any documents, Demings says: "The president is only engaging in this cover-up because he is guilty and he knows it."
Rep. Val Demings on President Trump defying subpoenas in impeachment case: "No president in history has ever done anything like this...I have never seen anyone take such extreme steps to hide evidence allegedly proving his innocence." https://t.co/aQRBEKBWY5
Rep Val Demings (FL) brings it: “As a career law enforcement officer, I have never seen anyone take such extreme steps to hide evidence allegedly proving his innocence. .... He is trying to cheat to win!” #ImpeachmentTrial
Val Demings is also blowing it away.
She's describing documents (including WhatsApp and text messages!) which give direct evidence in real time, now being "deliberately concealed" from the Americans at the "direction of the White House."
The House has some but not all⤵️
Rep. Zoe Lofgren today became the first female manager of a presidential impeachment.
And just a few moments ago, Rep. Val Demings became the first African American to serve in the role. https://t.co/7jgOU5fy43
Val Demings presentation is a good reminder that if we had all the documentation we should have from the State Dept, SecState would probably look terrible.
When I get a cold, I lay in bed and cry like a baby.
When Val Demings gets a cold, she masterfully lays out damning evidence against the most corrupt president in history and presents a remarkably solid argument for allowing witnesses and documents in trial.
She is outstanding.
Has Dem Val Demings brain been totally consumed by Florida palmettos?
She's a moron.
House impeachment manager Rep. Val Demings argued for the release of documents from the State Department. “They would help complete our understanding of how the President's scheme unfolded in real time.” https://t.co/VkhTY1mCbv
Val Demings presented a cogent case with visuals, like those Democrats before her.
All Trump's defenders are complaining about Democrats or the process.
Not one word that actually defends this president's actions.
Rep. Val Demings (D-Fla.) is destroying the GOP's flimsy defense of Trump's attempts to extort Ukraine for political gain.
Good Lord, Val Demings, a Dem. rep from Florida can’t even pronounce words correctly. “Texts” is NOT pronounced as “Textes” or “texes”. You’d think she’d correct herself if she knew better but she said it three times so far. A freaking CLOWN show.
This is your casual reminder that Rep Val Demings was Orlando’s first female Chief of Police.
And is an absolute badass in Congress. https://t.co/xXUarYJyp9
“As a career law enforcement officer, I have never seen anyone take such extreme steps to hide evidence allegedly proving his innocence... the President is engaged in this coverup because he is GUILTY and he knows it.”
— Rep Val Demings
Val Demings's argument is perfectly irrefutable. There is absolutely no reason why there shouldn't be witnesses and documents in this trial. Without them, it is simply not a trial. Such things are vital in any trial. The only people who disagree with this are sycophant cultists.
Val Demings is worse at public speaking than Mel Tillis was.🤠
Dems losing party line votes for now, but dominating debate. Former motorcycle cop Val Demings now scorching Trumpsters. https://t.co/MTdUqF9lLU
Val Demings apparently has a cold, but it isn't slowing her down at all. She is fighting through it as she lays out incredibly damning evidence, and an irrefutable argument for allowing witnesses and documents.
Extremely admirable. I am so thankful for her.
Ugh. Seeing lots of trolls and bots focusing on the way that Val Demings pronounces some words is fucking cringeworthy. For one, people have accents - get over it. For two, I'd bet not one of these folks had an issue with GW Bush pronouncing Nuclear as "newk-u-lar"... 🙄
Is Val Demings auditioning for a role in the high school play in DC?
Rep. Val Demings: "President Trump did not take these extreme steps to hide evidence of his innocence or to protect the institution of the presidency ... The president is engaged in the cover-up because he is guilty, and he knows it."
Thank you Val, you're such a great woman. https://t.co/9KX8nhuVT8
Val Demings, facts ARE stubborn things. It’s FACT that this sham was engineered from the moment @POTUS
won, FACT that DEMS have done nothing but obstruct, and FACT that you are wasting our time and resources on this circus. In 2020, DEMS will reap the whirlwind. That’s FACT.
"Val Demings" came with receipts 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽 You go girl and looking good in that blue & white suit 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽 https://t.co/pRzDfPYMcS
I didn’t think Val Demings would ever get off her soap box. She did a horrible job & I’m embarrassed she is from FL! She can point her fingers & flail her arms all she wants but repeating the dem lies & talking points don’t make them true. 🤦♀️ #KAG2020 https://t.co/yen22uM2H3
