Dersh seems to be conducting a con law class.

Not spending a lot of time rebutting the facts of Trump's impeachment or offering exculpatory evidence. It's like he is having a debate with himself.

6. One contrary point

Kornacki makes sense.

Dershowitz, not so much.

7. There is no sound in outer space

and I don't read lips...

so the content of what he is saying is lost... not that it WOULD make sense even if I could hear it.

4. None of the "Defense Team" have offered much of a defense for Trump...

mostly, like you say, they are opining on the rules, or attacking the Bidens, or praising Rudy.

Distractions. The problem with this format of trial, there is no real rebuttal of the defense presentation.

8. Well, give him credit.....

he IS wearing a nice suit and sounds very scholarly.....BUT there can be no doubt that his brain is in orbit around some distant planet.

I mean other than esoteric nonsense, WTF is he droning on about? And, at this point does anyone understand what he's saying? Or really what does all this have to do with anything? Or even care?

Excuse me while I go abuse my TV if he's still railing on.....

14. "in orbit around some distant planet"?

Uranus, I would guess....well, actually, HISanus. And it appears he's penetrated the black hole and riding a brown dwarf thru the wormhole........

10. Rebutting the facts?! He's saying the very things being charged are not impeachable offenses.

He is giving every Repug an easy way to say there are/were no grounds.

12. I was beyond me so i tuned out after a minute. I imagine trump supporters did the same.

So all that matters is what the talking heads say about his argument. Looks like the lawyers are not impressed.

13. I short...a shit load of fluff...

...just to say to be impeached and removed from office, there has to be a law, statute, etc. cited as being broken by the President.

Which in my view is bullshit. Congress authorized the aid to Ukraine and the Executive branch was required to implement it, IMPOTUS trying to attach an extra condition not authorized by Congress is a violation.
