CNN anchor John Berman had harsh words for senators who did not stay inside the Senate chamber as the House impeachment managers presented their case against President Trump on Wednesday.
Berman especially called out Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).
"The presentation from the House managers is earning praise even from Republicans. We have a picture to show you, late last night, thats Senator Lindsey Graham, one of the presidents fiercest defenders, telling lead manager Adam Schiff that he had done a good job. Really well-spoken, he said. Although it does beg the question, how would Senator Graham know? He wasnt in his chair for chunks of the arguments," Berman said.
"In fact, many of the senators of both parties were not at their desk at different times despite the rules which will require the apparently herculean task of sitting down for a few hours. "This isnt digging ditches, this isnt manning a fox hole, this isnt working an assembly line. This is sitting in a chair and enjoying all the milk you can drink," he continued. "But I guess its not like the future of the Republic is at stake. Oh, wait, it is! Remember, this is the so-called upper House, the cooling saucer, the higher chamber. Those cushy six-year terms, which apparently arent long enough for some to spare a few minutes to sit down."
Berman later noted throughout the show that Paul was working on a crossword puzzle during the arguments.
With regards to the case Schiff was presenting to the Senate, Jay Sekulow, a member of President Trump's defense team, told reporters how it was wrong for Schiff to invoked the phrase "quid pro quo" when talking about Trump's phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky since "quid pro quo" is not one of the two impeachment articles.
"Thats because they didnt exist. So, you know, there is a lot of things well rebut but we will do it in an orderly and I hope more systematic fashion," he said.
House Democrats impeached Trump on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Next he’ll be scolding the viewers for same.
Which is worse, being water boarded, or listening to Adam Schiff drone on for 2 1/2 hours?
I’ll take waterboarding for 100, Alex.
I heard Feinstein got up early and left.
Did he chide her, too?
Ya know, if the CNN staff and Schiff(less) were to have a “who’s the closest to a cretin” contest, I’m not quite sure who’d win.
My first guess would be a tie.
Who is this little twerp to tell them what to do?
That wouldn’t surprise me one bit
if you rub salt in your eye when He’s on, it’ll take you mind right off him and his boringness lol
Probably having to listen to that Pencil neck.
‘Depends’ can only hold so much!
In 1990's the political pipeline was stacking the colleges with former Clintonistas running them. Reich, Shalayla, Reno, etc... by the hundreds.
"Our numbers are way down. You people aren't paying attention to this and we went to a lot of trouble to come up with this performance. We need a lot more people tuning in. I'm serious, this is my job"
I wonder if John Berman-Goebbels goes to bed with a clear conscience knowing he’s lying to the American people each and every single day. Nah, he’s a leftist. Just standard procedure for him and the rest of the Goebbels family at CNN!
Did this talking-head also scold his fellow comrade, CNN “ political analyst “ Joe Lockhardt ?
Lockhardt issued a false tweet yesterday, about overhearing two Republican senators saying that Adam Schiff had made a compelling case ?
” Scolding “ from CNN ? Now, that’s funny!
One of them did.
Just sit back and drink in all that goody-goodness. Demented.
