Asked about some of his colleagues – Lindsey Graham, Rick Scott, Ron Johnson, etc. – said some “deeply offensively things” about yesterday’s Democratic impeachment managers’ presentations, Sen. Mark Warner, this morning on “Morning Joe,” had the following to say:

  • “I don’t know how anyone who was on the floor of the Senate January 6…could not have been moved by [yesterday’s presentations]…I don’t know how anyone in their heart of hearts could say these images you’re showing right now, but for Donald Trump, but for his unwillingness to accept the will of the American people…that somehow this would have happened if Donald Trump had not incited them, if Donald Trump had not promoted…the lie that somehow he had won the election in a big landslide.”
  • I don’t know anyone can call themselves a defender of law and order when you say…it’s ok for this mob to rampage and pillage.”
  • “The Capitol is more than those of us who work there, it is truly representation of our democracy…people have given their lives to defend that democracy so many times…and for people to be dismissive is an insult to who and what we represent as America…I don’t know how people will live with themselves 5 years, 10 years…what will they tell their kids or their grandkids where they stood when the question of accountability of January 6 took place…What Joe McCarthy did pales in comparison with the kind of big lie and sending folks towards violence…”
  • Trump was “willing to have these folks go after and threaten the life of his Vice President, Mike Pence; that in and of itself is…damning…those who are defending, how will they ever look Mike Pence in the face again?”
  • “I think there may be some revisionist history…if you were on the floor of the Senate yesterday, everyone was riveted.”
