Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia said Saturday that President Donald Trump’s legal defense did a “good job” defending the president after House Democrats made their case for impeachment.
Trump’s legal defense is “making me think about things,” Manchin, a Democrat, told CNN’s Manu Raju. His comments come as Trump’s team is given a period of time to defend the president’s dealings with Ukraine’s president.
“One thing that stuck in my mind is they said there isn’t a witness they have had so far that had direct contact with the president. I’d love to hear from [Office of Management and Budget Director Mick] Mulvaney and [former national security adviser John] Bolton,” he said. “I’ll be very impartial til the end.”
