Trump's "The Bidens Made Me Do It" justification defense

was compared this morning on MSNBC to OJ’s “Investigate the Cops” defense. This is wrong because the Bidens are not the cops; they are the victims.

While it is true that during the Mueller probe Trump attacked the federal police (Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, etc.), a more accurate analogy to his impeachment defense would have featured Cochran and Dershowitz calling for an investigation of Mrs. Simpson and Mr. Goldman in order to get to the bottom of what they were doing.
