Skip to comments.AP FACT CHECK: Trump's impeachment defense and the facts
Posted on 01/25/2020 6:50:02 PM PST by where's_the_Outrage?
WASHINGTON President Donald Trump's lawyers opened his Senate impeachment defense Saturday with the false assertion that Democrats tried to shut the president's team out of the congressional inquiry that preceded the charges. Actually, Democrats invited Trump to participate and he declined.
TRUMP lawyer PAT CIPOLLONE: Why would you lock everybody out of it from the president's side? ... Its evidence they themselves dont believe in the facts of their case.
THE FACTS: Trump wasn't locked out. He rejected an invitation from the House Judiciary Committee to participate in the hearings that ultimately produced the articles of impeachment.

Did they fact check the Fem case?
This article proves conclusively that he was a total Democrat shill 20 years ago, by repeating the behavior and being a total Democrat shill in the present day.
The MSM don’t tell the rest of the story that the House failed to follow protocol and vote on approval for subpoenas and so Shitts team broke procedure by sending over subpoenas without having passed that vote in the first place....
Actually, Cipollone stated Trump was locked out for 72 of 78 days.
The AssPress has consistently been among the most biased and left wing news sources. They are as bad as the NYSlimes, CNN and the Compost.
That entire missive is basically a lie.
Did AP check during the 3 days of the DEM illusion? I heard they didn’t.
“He rejected an invitation from the House Judiciary Committee to participate in the hearings that ultimately produced ...”
We’re having a lynching...would you like to come?
Schiffs the Intelligence committee and they interviewed witnesses behind closed doors and didnt allow Republicans to call witnesses. In a functional democracy both sides could pick who they chose. Bald face lie worse than Pravda.
Where was APs daily fact-check of the rats?
BS. The House dems position as articulated by themselves was, “we invited the President to come and Prove his Innocence”.
The American Constitutional form of gov’t “DOES NOT REQUIRE ANYONE TO PROVE THEIR INNOCENCE!”
We The People have the RIGHT of Presumed Innocence.
The ACCUSERS must PROVE our Guilt beyond Any Reasonable Doubt.
The AP purposefully omits this fact for their own Politically Biased reasons.
But, they know this and do not care one whit. This piece is meant to influence the ignorant masses. The Low Information Voter.
The fake media have their own facts.
We choose truth over facts.
- Joe Biden 8/8/19
The quality and diligence of AP’s fact checking can be summed up in the following headline posted on Breitbart.com tonight: Fact Check: “AP Says Biden Getting Ukrainian Prosecutor Fired to Protect Hunter Is False Narrative”. In other words, that video we all saw in which Biden is bragging how he used his office as VP to get the Ukraine prosecutor fired who was looking into his crooked son’s bribery did not occur and as the husband caught with his girlfriend told his angry wife: “Your eyes are lyin’”. And so is the damned Associated “press”.
Democrat talking points advanced by the Democrat media. What a surprise.
Would you like to participate in a rigged show trial? They blame Trump for not legitimizing it. Geez.
After 71 (out of 78) days of impeachment hearings, starting with secret Adam Shitt Intelligence Committee hearings in the Lubyanka bunker, then in the House itself, none of which had any representation from President Trump attorneys.
The AP must be running scared. They are working harder than ever to spread disinformation.
The AP simply prints what the Democrats write up for them.
