As TuskerDaily reported over the weekend, Team Trump announced that on Tuesday you can expect to see plenty of ‘Calls For Violence’ footage from Democrats to highlight the left’s utter hypocrisy in having another Trump impeachment trial.
Taking their cue from the old adage, the best defense is a good offense, the Trump legal team plans to counter the House articles of impeachment accusation that former President Donald Trump incited the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Trump’s defense team will show clips of the Democrat’s most recognizable leaders targeting Trump and his MAGA supporters with their rather colorful over-the-top rhetoric.
Sen. Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican, said Sunday that if “incitement” is the new standard, then there should be a long line of Democrats waiting to be impeached after the Trump trial is over, starting with Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer.
“I opposed the notion, which I think was a misguided notion, of voting to overturn the election either with Congress or with the vice president.
But I think if we are going to criminalize speech and somehow impeach everybody who says, ‘Oh, go fight to hear your voices heard,’ really we ought to impeach Chuck Schumer then.”
Paul pointed out what TuskerDaily had reported on in March after Schumer stood in front of the Supreme Court screeching that Justices Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh would “pay the price” if they ruled against abortion access.
The Democrats Egregious New York Senator’s comments were so repugnant they even prompted a rare rebuke from Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., who called Schumer’s comments “dangerous.”

Democrats Calls For Violence Against Trump, and his MAGA supports were the Norm, Rather Than the Exception.
Rep. Maxine Waters, California Democrat, urged her supporters at a 2018 to harass Trump officials whenever they saw them in public.
Ironically, none other than Chuck Schumer called out Maxine Waters for her calls for violence
Rep. Ilhan Omar, Minnesota Democrat, retweeted in 2019 a post lauding Mr. Paul’s neighbor for attacking the senator in 2017.
As TuskerDaily also reported Ilhan Omar didn’t just target Trump, MAGA supporters she also incited riots against Minneapolis Police Officers after they returned fire being fired upon by felon Dolan Idd.
MPD is a joke, this isn’t transparency or accountability.
A man was killed, his family terrorized & robbed of a son and all they are left w/ is more questions than answers.
Let’s stop normalizing + justifying state sanctioned murder by those who take an oath to uphold the law. https://t.co/PPYcYvCa6i

Sen. Christopher Murphy, Connecticut Democrat, said there was a big difference between the inflammatory Democratic statements and Trump’s fiery speech at the rally immediately before the rioting.
“There is no comparison. This was an effort to overturn an election, in and of itself an unconstitutional endeavor.
This was a crowd of tens of thousands of people. The president had access to intelligence to tell him that there were individuals there who were intending to storm the Capitol.”
As rioters began pouring into the Capitol, “the president had the ability to turn them around, and he didn’t,” Mr. Murphy said. “The circumstances are completely different.”
Not According To Team Trump
Attorney Bruce Castor indicated Friday that onlookers can expect a video montage featuring the Democrats’ greatest hits juxtaposed against an array of nationwide protest violence last year that included attacks on federal courthouses and immigration facilities.
Castor told Fox host Laura Ingraham.
“Many of them in Washington are using really the most inflammatory rhetoric possible to use. And certainly, there would be no suggestion that they did anything to incite any of the actions.
When you have the president of the United States give a speech and says that you should peacefully make your thinking known to the people in Congress, he’s all of a sudden a villain.”
While the specter of dueling videos promises to keep these proceedings far more entertaining than the Democrats’ previous Trump Impeachment hoax.
Senate Republicans have dismissed the spectacle as a waste of time because the chances of Former President Donald Trump being convicted are “zero”.
