Speaking from the Oval Office Friday afternoon during a meeting with Paraguay President Abdo Benítez, President Trump reacted for the first time to Democrats on the Judiciary Committee approving two articles of impeachment against him.
"It's a witch hunt, it's a sham, it's a hoax. Nothing was done wrong. Zero was done wrong. I think it's a horrible thing to be using the tool of impeachment, which is supposed to be used in an emergency and it would seem many many years apart, to be using this for a perfect phone call where the President of that country [Ukraine] said there was no pressure, didn't even know what we were talking about, it was perfect, the relationship was perfect, I've done much more for them than Obama did for them," he said. "It's a scam, it's something that should not be allowed and it's a very bad thing for our country and you are trivializing impeachment and I'll tell you what, someday they'll be a Democrat president and they'll be a Republican house and I suspect they're going to remember it."
"When you use impeachment for absolutely nothing other than to try and get political gain, now with that being said, as you know my poll numbers have been through the roof. Fundraising for the Republican Party has gone through the roof, we're setting records...because the people are disgusted. People are absolutely disgusted," he continued. "I've watched these Democrats make fools of themselves. Absolutely fools of themselves."
President Trump also noted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was "duped" in an interview during POLITICO's Women Rule Summit in Washington D.C. this week. During questioning she admitted House Democrats have been trying to impeach him for nearly three years.
"It's a hoax and Nancy Pelosi knows it. By the way they duped her yesterday, she was on an interview and she said 'we've been working on this for two-and-a half years. So she was working on it, in other words, two years before we ever spoke to Ukraine," he said. "The reporter was shocked when she got this answer because it showed that she's a liar."
As far as a timeline and the kind of trial in the Senate, President Trump said he wants full transparency and for Republicans to call witnesses, like the whistleblower who filed a secondhand complaint about the Ukrainian call, to testify.
In the meantime, the White House legal team is ready to go to war.
Standard issue Dem distract and defect propaganda tactics.
Need to drive both the very good week Trump had, and the bad showing by Left in the UK, out of the headlines so hold the vote until today so this now can be the story their toadies in the Fake news can hype all weekend
We absolutely cannot spare this man. He fights!
Bring the light and heat on the Libs Mr. President! The truth shall set you free and the country. The live tv broadcast of the Senate trail will shine the light on all the crimes of the Libs. DO IT!
Dems will need a lot of bandages and blood transfusions when Trump is done with them. Nadler will explode like that guy on Monty Python.
Our President needs to hire someone of the caliber of Sidney Powell for his defense attorney and stop messing around with people like Dershowiz.
“In the meantime, the White House legal team is ready to go to war.”
All they have done is to stir up a Trump Hornets Nest. They sure don’t understand Trump. He is motivated by conflict. He does not run from it.
“”It’s a hoax and Nancy Pelosi knows it. By the way they duped her yesterday, she was on an interview and she said ‘we’ve been working on this for two-and-a half years. So she was working on it, in other words, two years before we ever spoke to Ukraine,” he said. “The reporter was shocked when she got this answer because it showed that she’s a liar.””
Well said President Trump.
“Jeb...its Nancy Pelosi on the phone....again”
McConnell says witnesses if the president wants them. The president says bring on the witnesses.
Just wanted to add I watched some great house members fight hard too. If you can, thank them. Matt Gaetz. Jim Jordan. Doug Collins. A few more I should remember names....one from Texas. Ken Buck. Louie Gohmert More to be sure.
I love this. A point many R House members made as well.
Isn’t the Donald tampering with the forthcoming jury? Oh oh, they might impeach him for that.
Yeah, him - but at least his heart was still pumping whereas Nadler doesn’t have one - they took it out when they stapled his stomach.
All of this was so the Democrats can go into the 2020 election saying Trump is an impeached President.
I heard on Rush today I heard Prez Trump call Hillary something about she’s like a 3 dollar bill? Anyone heard that?
They need to call witnesses, like the whistleblower, Schiff, and Fatso Vindman...
They need to shine light on the coup or they will forever question if Trump was guilty.
Nadler (Mr. Creosote) = Bulging Bag of Bilious Bile!
