Trump's lawyer ridiculed at the impeachment hearing
Former US President Donald Trump's lawyer, Mike van der Veen, was laughed at an impeachment hearing. Reported by CBS News.
The lawyer, speaking before US senators, instructed that all testimony, in this case, should be given in person and under oath, and not by video link. He urged to interview the participants in the process in his office in Philadelphia, but made a reservation and pronounced the name of the city as вЂњPhilidelphiaвЂќ. Senators scoffed at Trump's lawyer for the slip.
Mike van der Veen, in turn, noted that there is nothing funny in this, and tried to return to the topic of his speech.
Earlier, US Senator Tina Smith accidentally appeared at the impeachment hearing of the former president wearing different shoes. Smith posted a photo of her shoes, which shows that one shoe is gold and the other is gray.
It is also reported that the US Senate, during a meeting on Saturday, acquitted former President Donald Trump in the framework of impeachment. At least 67 out of 100 senators must vote for impeachment to be indicted. Voting is still ongoing, but more than 34 legislators have already voted against it. Thus, the initiative is not gaining the required number of votes.
