Sekulow to Schiff, Nadler: Remember when you endorsed Eric Holder’s obstruction — and Barack Obama’s executive privilege claim?

Call this the Witnesses? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Witnesses gambit from Donald Trump’s legal team. Jay Sekulow argued yesterday in the opening presentment of the articles of impeachment that the entire process has been tainted by the House’s unconstitutional approach to impeachment. Nominally, Sekulow was arguing for the adoption of Mitch McConnell’s rules for the trial, but as PJM’s Tyler O’Neil writes, the argument employed by Sekulow goes to the heart of the legitimacy of the impeachment itself and the necessity of conducting a trial at all.
