Sen. Manchin Discusses The One Big Takeaway He Had During Trump’s Legal Defense

Chris White on January 25, 2020

Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia said Saturday that President Donald Trump’s legal defense did a “good job” defending the president after House Democrats made their case for impeachment.

Trump’s legal defense is “making me think about things,” Manchin, a Democrat, told CNN’s Manu Raju. His comments come as Trump’s team is given a period of time to defend the president’s dealings with Ukraine’s president.

“One thing that stuck in my mind is they said there isn’t a witness they have had so far that had direct contact with the president. I’d love to hear from [Office of Management and Budget Director Mick] Mulvaney and [former national security adviser John] Bolton,” he said. “I’ll be very impartial til the end.”

House Democrats believe Bolton’s possible testimony in the impeachment trial could be a game-breaker, leading to more potential charges leveled against the president.
