This could be a glimpse into how the Senate Republicans conduct the trial.

Why? Because the depositions are utterly devastating to the president, so they'll use the strategy of trying to undermine truth by "flooding the zone" and wearing people out.

The GOP, though, controls the Senate.

"Flood the zone," by the way, is from Steve Bannon, who explained the media strategy. Quote in next tweet

Here's the quotation ⤵️

We always knew a Senate trial would get ugly.

Dems control the House, so they control the impeachment.

GOP controls the Senate, so they'll control the trial.
