Former President Donald Trump's defense attorney, David Schoen, said Democrats are putting us through a 16-hour presentation like the impeachment effort is some sort of "bloodsport."

Schoen also suggested that anyone pushing forth with the second historic impeachment of Trump are possibly people who still haven't accepted the results of the 2016 election when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.

Schoen brought up the "16-hour" presentation comparison, as noted on CNN:

"They want to put you through a 16-hour presentation over two days focusing on this as if it were some sort of blood sport. And to what end?" he asked, adding, "for healing? For unity? For accountability? Not for any those."

Instead, he dubbed it a "pure, raw, misguided partisanship that makes them believe playing to our worst instincts somehow is good."

Trump's defense attorney called out supporters of the second impeachment as "elitists" as further stated on CNN:
Schoen called those pushing for the second impeachment trial "elitists" who failed to accept the results in 2016, and called the trial an attempt to further a left-leaning political agenda.

"At the end of the day, this is not just about Donald Trump or any individual. This is about our Constitution and abusing the impeachment power for political gain," he said.

Schoen said the trial would not unite the nation, rather it will "tear the country in half, leaving tens of millions of Americans feeling left out of the nation's agenda."

Noting that House impeachment managers enlisted the help of a movie company to produce a video recapping the Capitol riot, Schoen criticized the tactic as an effort to "chill and horrify" those who will view it.
