Fox News anchor Chris WallaceChristopher (Chris) WallaceConway: Reported sexist Bloomberg remarks 'far worse' than what Trump said on 'Access Hollywood' tape Candidates make electability arguments, talk Bloomberg as focus turns to more diverse states Buttigieg: Electability argument will sway voters of color because 'we dare not get this wrong' MORE said Tuesday that Rep. Jerry NadlerJerrold (Jerry) Lewis NadlerTrump adviser presses House investigators to make Bezos testify Nadler demands answers from Barr on 'new channel' for receiving Ukraine info from Giuliani Trump predicts Ocasio-Cortez will launch primary bid against Schumer MORE (D-N.Y.) likely would want a video from the 1998-1999 impeachment of President Clinton “expunged from the earth" due to the contradictory sentiment it provides compared to his perspective on the current Trump proceedings. 

Trump's defense team on Tuesday showed video clips of several Democrats, including Nadler and Senate Minority Leader Chuck SchumerCharles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerBarr to testify before House Judiciary panel Graham won't call Barr to testify over Roger Stone sentencing recommendation Roger Stone witness alleges Trump targeted prosecutors in 'vile smear job' MORE (D-N.Y.), railing against Clinton's impeachment as a partisan process. 
 
Schumer was also in the House when he made the remarks.

“They made a good case today,” Wallace said of the Trump team. He also said he would have loved to have been in the room when the video clips were played. 

“I also thought to myself, I wonder how much Jerry Nadler would pay to have that videotape of him from 1998 expunged from the Earth so that nobody could ever see it again,” Wallace said.
 
 
The video Wallace was referring to shows Nadler ripping what he characterized as a one-party impeachment of Clinton. 
 
"There must never be a narrowly-voted impeachment or an impeachment substantially supported by one of our major political parties and largely opposed by the other," Nadler said at the time. "Such an impeachment would lack legitimacy."

Other Republicans have harped on the remarks. 

The president's lawyers wrapped up their opening arguments in the trial on Tuesday afternoon in calling for a prompt end to the proceedings and Trump's acquittal. 


“Overturning the last election and massively interfering with the upcoming one would cause serious and lasting damage to the people of the United States and our great country,” Cipollone said in his closing remarks. “The Senate cannot allow this to happen. It is time for this to end, here and now.”
