SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Senate Majority Leader [Mitch] McConnell, he is following the precedent set in the Clinton impeachment trial. Each side fairly will get 24 hours to present their case. That will be followed by 16 hours of questions. Now, let's compare that to what happened in the House. Remember, all the precedent that was set, all the considerations that were given to Bill Clinton and his legal team, were all kicked to the side. They didn't even have a formal vote. It wasn't the result of any independent investigation. It was, as we now know, crafted in secret in the basement of the House. Now we know that, yes, the congenital liar Adam Schiff lied. “Oh, we'd love to hear from the whistleblower” when his office had contact with the hearsay whistleblower non-whistleblower. And then they audition witnesses, then they cherry-picked the evidence, what they would leak. Why? To propagandize you, the American people. 

The majority of House Republicans were blocked, or in one case, actually forcibly removed from Schiff's basement, behind-closed-door audition proceedings. The president's legal team was never allowed to participate. That was not the case with Bill Clinton. They were not allowed to present evidence or call witnesses or craft a defense, as was granted Bill Clinton. The president was afforded no due process, no basic fairness, the process was rigged from beginning to end, every single due process consideration that Republicans under Newt Gingrich gave Bill Clinton and his legal team and his attorneys, were denied this president and this president's attorneys.
