Mark Meadows accuses House impeachment managers of spinning Trump’s rhetoric

There’s no mistaking that Democrats have pulled out all the stops for their second impeachment of Donald Trump — and there’s probably a reason they’ve made such heavy use of sensational video.

On Wednesday, former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows accused the impeachment managers of spinning Trump’s rhetoric to leave out critical exculpatory details, Fox News reported.

Meadows: “There’s one line”

Democrats finished their second day of opening arguments Thursday, concluding their case that Trump provoked a mob to storm the Capitol after weeks spent claiming the election was stolen.

Their presentation has leaned heavily on dramatics and snappy soundbites, with Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) calling Trump the “inciter in chief,” as Fox noted. Democrats have also been particularly fixated on Trump’s “fight like hell” comment.

As Meadows pointed out, Democrats keep “conveniently” ignoring the moment Trump told his supporters to  protest “peacefully and patriotically.”

“There’s one line from President Trump’s January 6th speech that Democrats keep conveniently leaving out,” Meadows wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. “Peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”

Dems not impressed

However, Democrats seemed unimpressed with Meadows’ point.

“In a speech spanning almost 11,000 words — yes, we did check — that was the one time, the only time President Trump used the word peaceful or any suggestion of non-violence,” Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-PA) said, according to the New York Post.

“President Trump used the word ‘fight’ or ‘fighting’ 20 times, including telling the crowd they needed to ‘fight like hell’ to save our democracy,” she added.

Trump likely to be vindicated, anyway

This political jousting could go on forever, but it’s liable to make little difference in the end. Republicans have called the impeachment partisan, vengeful, and pointless, since Trump’s no longer in office. Meanwhile, Trump’s lawyers have focused on arguing that his comments did not cause the riot and that his speech is protected by the First Amendment.

Notably, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) has mentioned that Hillary Clinton advised Joe Biden to never concede “under any circumstances,” as the Post reports, one of many features of the trial that critics consider hypocritical. Others point to cases where Democrats have used inflammatory rhetoric, even using “fight like hell” language.

At any rate, Trump’s acquittal is virtually certain and the trial could be over in a matter of days. At that point, Democrats can complain all they like — it won’t matter.

  1. Democrats are a bunch of hypocrites.
    The rules only apply to Trump.. not
    to them. Vengeful, spiteful and
    downright hateful. Hope they all
    choke on their bitterness!

    1. For sure, and from the top down Dems are losers. See what happens when they leave God out of everything and begin thinking they are God? They lose.

  2. I cannot believe the word Unity is in the their vocabulary????? I swear to tell the whole lie. Or half the lie. Nothing but a lie. So help me. Me. I promise to deceive. You may proceed. I mean deceive. Thank you your Dictator. I mean your Excellency. I King of Lies. Please raise your left hand. I mean lie about me. I mean repeat after thee. What did I say Baliff?

  4. You are so right. Democrats break all the laws and say Trump did and he didn’t. Why doesn’t someone go after the lying, corrupt Democrats. They really did break laws. Trump didn’t break any laws, yet they keep going after him. They are the ones that should be impeached and on trial. They all should have been arrested for Treason when Trump was President. Everything they did was Treasonous.

  5. It’s time the Democratic Leaders (not law abiding legal voting Democrats) pay the price for their deceptive lies. The grave yards in many Democratic controlled Cities are missing half of their clients. How many illegal Democrats voted. We’ll never know, because of the Leaders of this corrupt cabal destroyed much of the evidence to prove it. China Joe Biden and Willies ex girlfriend had the election stolen for them by the corrupt leadership of the Democratic Party. The same thing happened in Georgia with both Senators. God Bless America. The truth will set you free. Not the lies by these corrupt leaders.

  6. Impeachment will unify the Trump movement both republicans and Democrats don’t forget there were Democrats that voted for Donald Trump there are Patriots that are Democrats America First isn’t limited to republicans Joe Biden will never be my president he needs to be in a nursing home so he doesn’t hurt his self but mostly so they don’t have him hurt our Country

  7. I am sure some of you have noticed that gas prices are already starting to go up. Food prices are starting to also go up due to the increased in desal fuel for trucks and this is only the beginning. Bitme and his Vice president Ho needs to be impeached for crimes they both have done while in office throughout the years but sadly, I doubt it will ever happen.

    1. Michael: In NJ gas prices have gone up by 45 to 50 cents in less than 15 days after this illegal president took office and started issuing executive orders. And the prices will keep going up. This will hurt everyone in the country. Also price of other essential goods will go up.

      1. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if our grand government didn’t start giving gas cards to illegals so it wouldn’t hurt them so bad.

      2. This illegal so call President, who was pronounced President , has started to ruin what a selected President started to safeguard this Country to be and all benefits necessary

      3. Are gas prices here in Kane county, Il are $2.55 a gallon. I can’t afford gas to go get groceries, or go to doctor appointments.

  8. Talking about unity??? Why would we? Four years Donald J Trump, our President, they never accepted him,
    All the news media, CNN, ABC, NBC Twitter, & etc they have fake news!
    I could say they’re just a bunch of Dumbmocrats!

  9. The temper tantrum continues…
    All because Trump kept Hillary from returning to the White House.
    4 years of hate, millions of taxpayers dollars wasted because Trump spoiled thei anointed Queen’s coronation…

  10. I have noticed a quick rise in gas prices in our area. Thank you Biden. I am sure we will see many more price gouging while more and more people are out of a job. Thank you Biden. I have also noticed how the Dems are trying to take away our free speech. Thank you Biden. I have also noticed that the Biden family is getting richer and richer. Thank you China.

  11. How about the woman on internet today went to purchase her sons medication for one month at $360 with a coupon without $500 He is diabetic. Cannot go without. She was paying under Trump $60/month?? This is why we need a President that is not concerned about his own wallet. He is supposed to be protecting his people. Every excecutive order he has sighed is to take our power and protection away. Why would you put your hand on a Bible and swear to protect and then send your people to death? I am certainly glad I am not you when your time comes? Good ole pops gave you some screwed up messages!
