Trump lawyer argues against showing video of insurrection at impeachment trial

DAVID SCHOEN: Does this country really need to see videotapes? We know now apparently that Mr. Swalwell and the other managers tend to show videotapes of the riots and people calling in, people being hurt, police officers talking. Why does the country need that now?

KYLIE MAR: Following the departure of his impeachment lawyers, former President Donald Trump put together a new legal team, including David Schoen who appeared on “Hannity” Monday night. Trump is accused of inciting the deadly insurrection at the Capitol on January 6, video of what Schoen argues should not be presented at the trial.

DAVID SCHOEN: We would stipulate that there was a riot that went on that day. It was a tragedy. This had nothing to do with President Trump. And the country doesn’t need to just watch videos of riots and unrest.
