In February 2020, Republican Mitt Romney was the only one in his party to condemn Trump in the first process of dismissing the former US president, then accused of pressuring the President of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelenskii, to link Joe Biden’s son , Hunter Biden, to cases of corruption in the country.

The former president issued a statement in which he reacted to the acquittal, congratulating himself on having obtained “one more victory”. “Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement is only just beginning,” says the former White House tenant, thanking his lawyers.

On Thursday, Democratic prosecutors asked for Trump’s sentencing, showing video footage that sought to make a direct link between the former president’s public statements, denouncing electoral fraud in the November 3, 2020 presidential elections, and crowd action. that attacked the Capitol on January 6, causing five deaths.

On Friday, the defense arguments were presented by a team of three lawyers hired by Trump, who accused Democrats of wanting “political revenge”.

Using the same weapons as Democratic prosecutors, attorney Michael van der Veen released videos to demonstrate that Donald Trump regularly presented himself as the protector of “law and order” and that his opponents also sometimes made fiery speeches.
