SANDRA SMITH (CO-ANCHOR): You predicted early on, as far as the timing of all this, that the trial would not drag on. Over the past 48 hours, have you changed your mind on that at all? 

SEN. TOM COTTON: Well, Sandra, I can tell you from a personal sense that it certainly seems to drag on late into the night as the House Democrats repeat themself time and time again. If they had strong evidence, though, I think they’d simply present that evidence and let it speak for itself. But they don't. That's why what we heard yesterday were repetitive arguments over and over again based on little more than hearsay and the House Democrats’ objections to Donald Trump being the president and being able to set foreign policy for this country. I expect, unfortunately, that we will probably hear more of the same today. 


COTTON: One thing I've seen as I've listened to these House Democrats the last few days is just how flimsy the evidence is to support their case -- based primarily on hearsay. And again, repeating themselves over and over again, because they don't have the evidence that would just speak for itself.
