😷DAY 3: FLORIDA MASK TRIAL😷
The final day of the trial begins in a few moments.
Several Florida families are suing @GovRonDeSantis and the Dept. of Education over the ban on school mask mandates.
Defense will begin this morning.
OK here we go.
Sheridan: before we begin -- objection. Defense plans to call what we refer to as "parent witnesses." Concerned parties, care about kids, but our position is they are neither fact witnesses nor experts.
So objection is relevance.

The NY Times had 93 questions on Day 1, so we'll start with #94 today, as I may have missed some while doing TV.
94th question, from Sen. @PattyMurray (D-WA):
Can you further clarify the WH counsel's arguments that the subpoenas issued before the impeachment vote were invalid?
@PattyMurray Rep. Lofgren:
House issued rules on January 9, 2019, and the House's standing rules give each committee subpoena power to conduct their business. We have more power after an impeachment has been authorized.

1st question in Senator Q&A phase of impeachment trial is from the moderate Republicans--Collins reads out Q from herself, Murkowski and Romney.
How should Senate treat evidence if Trump had dual motives both personal and public?
Philbin answers: 1) even if Trump's motive was only personal, it's too subjective to be viable for impeachment 2) if he had any mixed motives, it destroys their case, because Senators can't determine how much was personal vs. public motive
