Sunday on ABC's "This Week" roundtable, ABC Chief National Correspondent Terry Moran gave his take on how the first week of President Trump's impeachment trial went:
TERRY MORAN: Looking at it, it is a classic circumstantial evidence case. The Democrats come and they make a very meticulous, well-organized and strong narrative argument that requires a leap to the conclusion, that they did in their arguments.
That, if you look at all this evidence around President Trump, he did this -- he did this and it warrants removal from office.
And the Republicans, like any defense lawyer in courts across the country every day, say, where is the direct evidence? That you have to make the conclusion, make that leap. And that does raise the question, was it the right choice at the end of the day for the Democrats to go with this evidence, go with this evidence, the impeachment you have, rather than fight, as the are now asking the Senate to do, for the people who could say: "I was in the room, President Trump turned to me and said that money's not going to Ukraine unless they go to the Bidens."
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Mick Mulvaney and John Bolton.
