Bill Cassidy says Trump defense should focus on impeachment charge

Louisiana Republican Senator Bill Cassidy said Sunday that former President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense should focus on whether he contributed to an atmosphere that sparked the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

“I said like a year ago that I would wait to judge the evidence presented,” Cassidy said on Fox News Sunday.

“As far as I know,” Cassidy said, “the evidence will focus on whether the president contributed to an atmosphere where people attacked the Capitol, broke in and, if you will, threatened both Congressmen and Vice-Presidents, Pence is the indictment, so I would hope that any defense will refute this charge. “
