“Good job, you’re very well-spoken,” Graham, a former military judge who is one of Trump’s most vocal allies in the Senate, told Schiff, shaking his hand, as he left the Capitol Wednesday night.

Schiff spoke for approximately 2 1/2 hours Wednesday, outlining the timeline of the House’s impeachment proceedings and citing video testimony from earlier impeachment hearings held in the House.

"If people are listening, it's very hard to imagine that they will think that the Democrats and the House managers are making this up," CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said after Schiff’s address, calling the California Democrat’s argument “dazzling.”
