Trump to Address ‘False Charges’ in Senate, Expects to Be ‘Fully Exonerated’

After sitting out two impeachment hearings held by the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees, the White House said President Donald Trump would respond to the “false charges” leveled against him by Congressional Democrats during a Senate trial.

In a statement, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham blasted House Democrats for their “baseless and partisan” impeachment effort.

“Today, in a baseless and partisan attempt to undermine a sitting President, Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats announced the pre-determined outcome of their sham impeachment – something they have been seeking since before President Trump was inaugurated.”

Grisham alleged the impeachment effort was born out of a fear that Trump would win re-election if he wasn’t impeached. “House Democrats have long wanted to overturn the votes of 63 million Americans,” the statement said. “They have determined that they must impeach President Trump because they cannot legitimately defeat him at the ballot box.”

Additionally, Grisham charged that the American public – not Trump – would be hurt by the impeachment effort.

“The announcement of two baseless articles of impeachment does not hurt the President, it hurts the American people, who expect their elected officials to work on their behalf to strengthen our Nation.”

In recent days, Congressional Republicans have said Trump should participate in the impeachment effort but only “when there is an actual opportunity in which it is a situation in which they can present, do the presentation that they need to.”

Grisham said that Trump will “address these false charges in the Senate,” adding that he “expects to be fully exonerated because he did nothing wrong.”

Last week, Trump urged the Democrats to vote to impeach him “fast” so that the Republican-controlled Senate can begin its trial.

House Democrats announced articles of impeachment against Trump on Tuesday. The House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to begin debating them on Wednesday and could vote to recommend at least two articles of impeachment against Trump to the full House as early as Thursday.

Cheryl, HOW was it a “stupid pitiful analogy”? OJ was adamant in his denial of killing his ex-wife and Goldman? Many OJ supporters proclaimed his innocence before, during and after the trial.

“OJ was acquitted and professed his innocence. WHY not DJ?” Hey philly, take your own advice and read the IG’ s report. You libs have got ZERO and are just too dim to realize it. Your lame analogy proves this.

Too bad the dirty do-nothing D-RATs can’t pour this wasted energy into something positive for America—–the D-RATs are derelict of duty—-they have abandoned their responsibilities—-they no longer represent the will of the people—-they only tow the disgusting party line. If anybody s/b impeached—-it’s the entire derelict D-RAT party—-the party of jackass!

I agree with the liberals paying us Trump backers back. Make sure you don’t give the Trump haters their money back since they don’t deserve it.
