See below for video of Sen. Tim Kaine talking about “deep anxiety…across this country; does our justice system deliver impartial justice…or is there a system for regular everyday folks and…a different system for rich and powerful folks?” Sen. Kaine continues:

“If they watch a trial in the U.S. Senate presided over by the Chief Justice…regarding the behavior of the most powerful person in this country, and they come to believe, oh, there’s a different standard for a rich and powerful person – a rich and powerful person gets to hide all the evidence, hide all the witnesses, not be held accountable for the actual facts and evicence – it will confirm in many, many people the deep cynicism and anxiety they have about our system of justice. Let’s stand for  the proposition that we can still do justice in this country, and let’s reject an effort to turn this solemn proceeding into a sham.”
