White House: Trump ‘Will Address’ Impeachment Charges in the Senate

White House: Trump ‘Will Address’ Impeachment Charges in the Senate

“The president will address these false charges in the Senate and expects to be fully exonerated because he did nothing wrong.”

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement that President Donald Trump “will address” the impeachment charges in the Senate trial.

From Newsmax:

“The Democrats’ use of a phone call with the president of Ukraine, with a transcript the president himself released, served as their excuse for this partisan, gratuitous, and pathetic attempt to overthrow the Trump administration and the results of the 2016 election,” Grisham said in a statement.

She ripped the impeachment articles, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, as “baseless” and said they hurt the American people, “who expect their elected officials to work on their behalf to strengthen our nation.”

“The president will address these false charges in the Senate and expects to be fully exonerated,” she said, “because he did nothing wrong.”

Trump told the Democrats if they want to impeach him to “do it now” and “fast.”

He also “threatened to seek testimony from top Democrats including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi.”

President Trump might want to throw this in was well.

‘I Will Attend Your Trial And Sentencing’: CIA Alumnus Responds To John Brennan’s Tweet

I worked for you at CIA. You’re dishonest and corrupt. You’ve destroyed the agency that I loved and served for 23 years.

I swear to you: I will attend your trial and sentencing. That day is coming.

First witness: schiff. Then “Whistleblower” schiff staffers. bidens. crowdstrike staff. john kerry and son. nancy pelosi and son/husband. I could go on all day with this witness list. I don’t think the democrats are going to like impeachment as much as they think they’re going to like it.

This is all dandy, but the House is voting on giving illegal alien part-time or fake farm labor a PATH TO CITIZENSHIP.

I’ve called my rep. this morning. Will again later. will tell you all about it.

Squirrel! Don’t the lefties love it.

Sounds like a case the judge should throw out.

They know thewy will lose. They are looking to blemish his record for the next 5 years.

Why even go to the senate. The Presidents lawyers can go directly to the Supreme Court to argue, correctly that these are no impeachable charges.

    Because Trump wants the Senate trial.

    Apart from the Chief Justice presiding, the USSC as a body has nothing to do with the impeachment process.

    But an interesting question arises w/John Roberts. Can he preside?

    Roberts’s a compromised man. Compromised because he oversees the FISA court generally and because he appointed the FISA court judges which issued those warrants the purpose of which was to spy on Trump qua candidate and Trump qua president. All of which means that the GOP Senators defending the president should, if they’re into an effective strategy, call Roberts as a witness.

    And compromised because Roberts’s on record rebuking Trump on the recent “Obama judges” remark. In short, Roberts’ ability to act as an impartial is non-existent.

    But, as noted, Robert’s the Chief Justice. The text of the Constitution doesn’t allow that another justice can be substituted. Expressly it must be the Chief Justice.

    28 U.S. Code section 455. Disqualification of justice, judge, or magistrate judge,
    (a) Any justice, judge, or magistrate judge of the United States shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.
    (b) He shall also disqualify himself in the following circumstances:
    (1) Where he has a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party, or personal knowledge of disputed evidentiary facts concerning the proceeding.

    See also Federal Rules of Evidence, Rule 605,
    The presiding judge [in a trial] may not testify as a witness at the trial.

    And the Constitution is quite express in its use of the definite article “the,” “the chief justice” who is to preside. No substitutions allowed.

    No, they can’t.

Honestly I think this is designed for it to NOT be taken seriously in the Senate.

They know they have zero chance of actually getting him removed, and after the clown show Schiff and Nadler put on, they can’t even count on backstabbing bitches like Romney to give them a ‘bipartisan’ to hang their hats on.

I honestly think what they’re hoping for is for them to ‘impeach’ him on this laughable bullshit, and for McConnell to immediately call for a vote and dismiss it.

That would let them preach to their insane base that they DID impeach him and the Republicans are just playing politics.

A trial in the Senate is their worst nightmare.

They vote next week? What if the vote to impeach fails? It might not get to the senate.

    If the vote fails that would be both pretty cool and pretty unexpected. But one of the rules of being a leader in a legislative body is that you don’t bring a bill to a vote unless you have the votes lined up.

    Surely Pelosi couldn’t be that stupid not to have the votes lined up, including a sufficient number of those endangered 31 Ds, to get her to 218 (actually that number might be lower because I think there are some vacant seats at the moment). If some Ds have to walk the plank, Pelosi will force them to do it. What does she care for their futures.

They should dismiss both charges for failure to state a claim for which relief can be granted

I’ve been looking forward to this for over a year now (with trepidation), since the Russia collusion. I really want Trump on the floor of the Senate giving a powerpoint presentation over a Jumbotron of all the declassified documents of every text, e-mail, video, voice recording, transcribed testimony, air ticket, and phone call with all the other 5Is services, of exactly how Flynn,Papadopoulos, Page and Manfort were framed, and all the foreign spies and career foreign service workers, Russian intelligence agents, MI6, FBI, CIA agents and of course the marvelous Stefan Halper (who, I fear, soon will be taking a canoeing trip) and friends.

Let it run in detail for three months. It’ll be must-see TV.
