  1. Elizabeth Warren:

    He is a criminal law professor who stood in the well of the Senate and talked about how law never inquires into intent and that we should not be using the presidents intent as part of understanding impeachment, criminal law is all about intent. Mens rea is the heart of criminal law. Thats the very basis of it. So it makes his whole presentation just nonsensical. I truly could not follow it.
