Donald Trump’s defense attorney said that the country needs to come together and “find a middle ground” when it comes to the left-right paradigm and the media reporting the truth. “That’s the problem the media has to start living by the truth and not the narrative,” he said.
The Philadelphia-based attorney said that the impeachment trial was “all political rhetoric” that is not too far away from what happened at the 6 January insurection on the U.S. Capitol.
“The prosecutors, in this case, doctored evidence,” he said. “They did not investigate this case and when they had to come to the court of the Senate to put their case on — because they hadn’t done any investigation they doctored the evidence.”
Zak then attempted to justify prosecutors’ actions by acting as if changing the date of a Tweet and adding a blue checkmark was par for the course.
Firing back at the CBS News anchor, van der Veen made it clear that it’s not okay to doctor evidence on any scale.
