Sen. Tim Scott: ‘I’ve heard nothing to convince me of impeachable offenses’

There has been no evidence provided thus far in the Senate impeachment trial to substantiate allegations that President Trump committed impeachable offensesSen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., said Friday.

Appearing on “America’s Newsroom” with hosts Sandra Smith and Ed Henry, Scott remarked that each of the first four days of the trial has felt like the classic Bill Murray film “Groundhog Day.”

“Tuesday they presented their case as an opening argument and they have not added a single fact since Tuesday,” he said.

“I have heard nothing in the last four days that has altered my opinion,” Scott stated.

Scott said the “good news” is that the president’s legal team will “finally” have the first public chance to present their case to the American people, which he knows “will be a compelling change.”

“What you’ll hear from them, I believe, is information that is compelling and complete that is totally exonerating the president,” he concluded.
