On the fifth day of the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, the president’s defense team began their case against his conviction and removal. Lawyers from the Office of White House Counsel, including Pat Cipollone, Pat Philbin and Michael Purpura, as well as the president’s personal attorney Jay Sekulow, argued that the House managers ignored key facts of the case. The president’s defense also laid out what they believe is at stake with this impeachment trial.

The proceedings of the impeachment trial should be carefully heard by each and every American, but the reality is that most do not have the luxury of sitting through the six days per week of lengthy testimony, so Lawfare and Goat Rodeo bring you the fifth day of President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial boiled down to the most essential one hour and 14 minutes.
