Why obstruction and intransigence are foolish defenses for Trump in the Senate trial

Two good tweets about introduction of evidence and testimony at the coming Senate impeachment trial.

From Joyce Alene @JoyceWhiteVance (U. Alabama Law Professor and MSNBC contributor)

It’s time to add a corollary rule: No one keeps emails, texts or other documents that can exonerate them from being introduced at trial.

No one prevents a witness who can exonerate them from testifying.

Laurence Tribe @tribelaw tweets about impartiality.

When the Chief Justice administers the oath of impartiality to a Senator who has said he will not be impartial, he will need to decide what his own oath demands — and whether he has jurisdiction to rule on a motion to recuse that Senator for cause.
