Numerous Republican lawmakers lauded President Trump’s defense team following their opening arguments before the Senate on Saturday, saying they completely “shredded” Adam Schiff and the Democrat managers’ impeachment case in a matter of hours.

“In two hours, the White House counsel entirely shredded the case by the House managers,” Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) told reporters. “What we saw today was factually relevant … and (we) saw there were a lot of half-truths from the House managers and, frankly, pushed by the media.”

Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) also praised the White House lawyers, saying their “strong” presentation “completely undermined” impeachment manager Adam Schiff’s credibility.

Other senators like James Lankford of Oklahoma, Josh Hawley of Missouri, and John Cornyn of Texas also shared positive assessments of the Trump team’s opening remarks.

Many House Republicans echoed their Senate colleagues, claiming the Trump team’s “devastating” opening remarks “destroyed” and “dismantled” the Democrat impeachment narrative.

Schiff furiously responded to the White House defense’s statements on Twitter, claiming Trump’s team is engaging in a cover-up.
