David Schoen, one of former President Donald Trump’s defense lawyers, slammed House managers for “splicing” videos together to play “movies” of the Jan. 6 Capitol breach at the Senate trial.

The trial opened with a graphic 13-minute video that chronicled the events of the insurrection. 

Schoen said the Senate trial was for “pure, raw, misguided partisanship that makes them believe that playing to our worst instincts somehow is good.”

“They don’t need to show you movies to show you that the riot happened here. We will stipulate that it happened, and you know all about it,” he continued.

Minutes later, Schoen played a clip of several Democratic lawmakers saying years before they would vote to impeach Trump, edited together over dramatic music.
