Trump impeachment lawyer Michael van der Veen told senators that if Democrats wished to call a witness, he would ask for at least 100 witnesses and would insist they give depositions in person in his office in Philadelphia.
“These depositions should be done in person in my office in Philadelphia,” van der Veen said. “That’s where they should be done.”
His animated statement was met with laughter from the chamber, which visibly angered van der Veen.
“I haven’t laughed at any of you and there’s nothing laughable here,” van der Veen said.
