New Senate ERUPTS in laughter at Trump lawyer calling for depositions in his Philadelphia office

  • Whatsapp

One of the lawyers on former President Trump’s impeachment defense team grew frustrated after senators began laughing at him during Saturday remarks when the attorney mispronounced “Philadelphia.”

Michael van der Veen addressed the Senate after Democrats revived debate on whether to call witnesses for Trump’s impeachment trial, including virtually over Zoom.

Trump’s attorney said that sworn testimony from leaders such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Vice President Harris should only be done in person.

“A lot of depositions need to be happening,” he said. “None of these depositions should be done by Zoom.”

He continued, “We didn’t do this hearing by Zoom. These depositions should be done in person, in my office, in Philadelphia,” pronouncing the city as “Philly-delphia.”

Senators then broke out into laughter, seemingly in reaction to the pronunciation, as van der Veen continued, “That’s where they should be done.”

  1. "I haven't laughed at any of you"
    Yes but your defending a man who has caused plenty of deaths and the invasion of our Capital.

  2. Absolutely the state of politics. Those laughing congressmen should be ashamed. They violated decorum and made a mockery of these very serious proceedings. It indicates a glibness and dismissiveness that just makes everyday americans hate them even more.

  3. Ahh yes, making fun of someone for mispronouncing a word.

    Clearly the people worth keeping in the highest office of the world.

  4. They all laughed because they are pompous, arrogant dems on the left who are taking this country for fools because in their mind, they are the leaders and we are the servants instead of the other way around like it should be…all who voted for Biden, you are going to get what you deserve because that is who they are…"How dare anyone say that Pelosi or Harris have to follow the procedures of the civil process" they laugh…..van der Veen is right–there is nothing to laugh about. Trump got things done for the people of this country and now you're going to watch Biden and Harris flush it all down the toilet because they are power-starved and couldn't care less about being your public servants—they want to rule over you—-sleep tight.

  5. Senators laughing in Ignorance then the BAD ASS lawyer slammed them hard 😄
