Trump's lawyers 'loose with the truth' like him: Schumer

"On multiple occasions they made discreet and demonstrable factual errors," Schumer said referring to Trump's lawyers who spoke on the Senate floor on Tuesday.

"The president is always loose with the truth and it seems his lawyers are the same way." Schumer also said Trump's counsel "resorted to the kind of histrionics you see on Fox News evening broadcasts rather than any sober-minded argument that could persuade thoughtful senators." The Republican-controlled U.S. Senate will hear opening arguments in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial on Wednesday, beginning several days of argument on whether to remove Trump from office.
