Val Demings mocks Senators walking out: ‘Evidence is painful for them’

Demings doesn't see Republicans walking out during testimony as a bad thing.

Republican Senators who reportedly are walking out of the U.S. Senate chambers or doing other things to avoid paying attention to the Democrats’ impeachment arguments don’t bother Orlando’s Democratic U.S. Rep. Val Demings, the House impeachment manager said Friday.

She suggested the Republicans are finding the evidence presented by her and other Democrats in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump to be “painful for them,” leading them to get up and leave.

Demings made her comments when she was interviewed Friday morning on the MSNBC show “Morning Joe.” Host Mika Brzezinski asked what it would take to reach Republican Senators who appear to not be listening.

“I know that some of them are walking out of the room. But I kind of see it differently. I think when they are presented with either testimony, and we know we’ve seen one foreign service officer after another, testimony from those career, very dedicated foreign service officers, many of whom have direct knowledge, they were on the call, I think sometimes when the Senators walk out of the room I see it many times as an indication that evidence is overwhelming for them,” Demings said.

“That sitting there listening to things we’ve presented in a chronological way and order, I think it can be pretty painful for them,” Demings continued. “I don’t necessarily see them walking out of the room to maybe get some fresh air is necessarily a bad thing. There is no way on Earth that they can get around the fact, that they can get around this drug deal, if you will, as Ambassador [John] Bolton categorized it, that the President and those around him were cooking up to basically cheat in the 2020 election and extort Ukraine into interfering in our election.”

Demings is one of the seven House impeachment managers presenting the Democrats’ case against Trump at the Senate trial.

Unlike the rest of the speakers, Demings is not an attorney. She is the former chief of the Orlando Police Department, being the first woman to hold that job. She retired from the force in 2011 and narrowly lost a congressional race in 2012 before winning her House seat in 2014.

Originally from Jacksonville, Demings was one of seven children. Her father worked as a janitor, her mother was a maid. The two-term congresswoman — she ran for her second term unopposed — Demings had attended segregated schools and was the first in her family to graduate college.

Demings’ husband, Jerry Demings, became Orlando’s first black police chief in 1999 through 2002. He was elected Orange County Sheriff in 2008 — while Val was serving as Orlando Police Chief — and was elected in 2018 to be Mayor of Orange County, winning by 60% of the vote. The couple have three children.

“I think if anybody has been paying attention as we have presented our case over the last couple of days, and I know a lot of people have been paying attention, there’s no doubt that the evidence against the President is overwhelming. It’s clear, it’s convincing,” Demings said.

“I think under the leadership of [Democratic U.S. Rep.] Adam Schiff we’ve done a decent job trying to make it clear to the American people. I know the Senators are listening. We’ve had some long days but they are listening. They are taking notes.”

    I have to agree with Senator Demmings. These republicans know they are complicit in the treasonous behavior of the President and they find they are getting queasy when presented with the facts of what they are doing. These Senators and the President should be facing charges of treason and they know it!

      I don’t think that “mocking” is the right word. It denotes that she was negative towards the senators. “Implored” would’ve been a better descriptor. Rep. Demmings is smart enough not to antagonize an already uncomfortable group of republican senators. The democratic managers just handed their collective heads on a platter with a point by point timeline of the treasonous conduct of Trump. Since there were tight restrictions on the cameras, the television audience couldn’t see the body language of the republican senators, but I heard many reports of them squirming in their seats, while others listened intently as they took notes. Former Senator Claire McCaskill reported calling several of her former colleagues who reported a handful of republicans were surprised by revelations. This is how divided our nation has become when we ignore facts and step inside our own “echo chamber”. As Samuel said, “It’s easier to fool people than to convince people that they have been fooled.”

    When Rep. Matt Gaetz praises how the democrats are presenting their case and refers to the GOP defense as looking like a 8th grade book report. Then you know it’s not looking good for Trump. Problem is, the republicans dug themselves a pretty deep hole with their blind support for Trump. One that’s going to be next to impossible for them to get out of….

    The Chief Justice and the Sargent at Arms are derelict in their duties not to enforce the agreed upon laws on Senators who can’t sit quietly, not use electronic devices and/or leave the chambers. None of us serving on a jury would be allowed to behave this way. Their actions demonstrate that, like the President, they believe that the laws don’t apply to them. I doubt they’ll be held to the rules. But I hope we remember and hold them to account come November.

        John, in between rants, read up on Barry Goldwater, an authentic conservative and anti-communist GOP nominee in ’64. Goldwater told Nixon it was time to go and were he still in the senate I’m sure he’d have no use for Mr. Trump nor would he participate in the monolithic GOP worship of a guy who happily sought electoral help from the remnants of the USSR, the birthplace of communism.

          Both were impeached unlawfully! Separation of Powers and Executive privilege were violated!

          In Nixon’s case he had full authority to break into DNC office and should’ve activated the USDOJ to do do! We know for a fact hardcore clandestine communist operatives in the United States loyal to the DNC were going to Rusdia to receive training for subversive Activities in the United States.

          Most of these groups you already know 1. Weather Underground Group, NAACP, ADL, AFL-CIO, countless others.

          Yes. In Bill Clinton’s case his ignorant lawyers had him go to court whildt he still held the Presidency! Total violation of separation of powers! Absolute.

          The Communist DNC & Rockefeller Republican Commie lovers that have held power since they used political animal to oust Hon. Senator Joseph McCarthy are still in power!

          Hon. President Donald John Trump knows this! What the President is trying to do is shrink these corrupted monstrosities without Civil War thereby redirecting more power back to the States from this vile, evil, omnipotent security state loyal to the Communist agenda.

In the end Trump will remain in office and will win again in 2020. If you believe in the “Devil”, you must believe in God too (maybe not) and He is watching (and one ! is sufficient you’ll get carpel tunnelI.) I really want to know how exactly you think you know all this crap…CNN I bet. I mean according to your rant, you have more knowledge than even the most avid Democratic legislator since they are allegedly trying to find facts independent of CNN or any other news source. So, simply, how do you know all the crap you wrote. What are your sources? In your head perhaps? Surely you do not have access to the reams of material before Congress. Notice I did not draw attention to myself by using all caps. May God have mercy on YOUR soul, madam.

    Trump is challenging the rule of law. He reminds me of a teenagers who when he breaks the rules , rather than except the consequecnes he challenges the rule and presents his own reality of how things should be. That is what Trump is doing, he is a spoiled, rich, white boy. He is not use to accepting NO and will have as many melt downs as needed to get his way. Just like he is the cause of that Ukraine plane being shot down. I think they did it to start a war…so these Republicans better get their buts in gear and vote like they understand right from wrong. Impeach him and all of his folks including Pence and clear the deck before this fool starts a war.

    What is the root of their complicity, where does it lie that they are so publicly ambivalent and at ease in allowing this dysfunctional individual, President Trump, to bring down the prestige of this nation internationally, shame us in the eyes of our allies with lies and distrust? Promote his own self serving corruption to benefit him personally as opposed to the nation, and yet the Senate Republicans remain silent. I suggest that the scab over this rotten, festering, ugly wound has come as a result of racial animus and white folks insecurity of losing their vaunted position of privilege once a black man was elected President of the United States and his family moved into the Whitehouse. The thought was simply so utterly repulsive to all of these insecure whites to where they’d rather see the collapse of this democratic republic under the wreckless hand of a dysfunctional fool as long as he’s white.

    What’s painful is Val’s butchery of the English language unsurpassed by Norm Crosby. So many of her supporters comment on how well spoken and articulate she is. Throw in a few “very cleans” and “presentable” and they will be awarded the “Joseph Biden Endowment for Unintentional Racism.”
