(CNSNews.com) – It was after midnight when tempers ran short at the Senate impeachment trial:
“Mr. Nadler, you owe an apology to the President of the United States and his family. You owe an apology to the Senate. But most of all, you owe an apology to the American people,” White House Counsel Pat Cipollone told House impeachment manager and Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.).
Cipollone said he and others on the president’s team “came here today to address the false case brought to you by the House managers.”
We’ve been respectful of the Senate. We’ve made our arguments to you. And you don’t deserve and we don’t deserve what just happened. Mr. Nadler came up here and made false allegations against our team. He made false allegations against all of you. He accused you of a cover-up. He’s been making false allegations against the president.
The only one who should be embarrassed, Mr. Nadler is you, for the way you’ve addressed this body. This is the United States Senate. You’re not in charge here.
