So, the Democrats just released the impeachment report summarizing Trump’s supposed wrongdoings – and, what a bunch of malarkey it is.
According to the report, Trump “sought to undermine the integrity of the U.S. presidential election process, and endangered U.S. national security” and “ordered and implemented a campaign to conceal his conduct from the public.”
It's over 300 pages long, and somehow, there's still no evidence!
The White House, however, had the perfect response.
Read it here:
Axios gave an overview of the impeachment report:
House Democrats conclude in a draft report released Tuesday that President Trump abused the power of his office to pressure Ukraine to announce investigations beneficial to his re-election campaign — and that he obstructed Congress' authority by ordering witnesses to defy subpoenas in the impeachment inquiry.
Why it matters: The report will serve as an outline for some, if not all, of the articles of impeachment that the House could vote on as early as mid-December.
Driving the news: The committee is expected to formally adopt the report during a closed-door meeting Tuesday night. It will then go, along with a minority report from the Republicans, to the House Judiciary Committee, which is ultimately responsible for drafting articles of impeachment.
Between the lines: Much of the information in the report isn't new, but it's being pulled together to lay out Democrats' case that Trump committed impeachable offenses.
- It includes interviews with over a dozen witnesses, as well as historical comparisons that Democrats believe prove Trump's stonewalling of Congress is "unprecedented."
- Revelations in the form of call records show communications between Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, Giuliani associate Lev Parnas and House Intelligence ranking member Devin Nunes (R-Calif.).
- Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said at a news conference Tuesday the "phone records show that there was considerable coordination among the parties, including the White House."
- The call records also show that on April 24, the day that former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was recalled, Giuliani had phone calls with numbers associated with the White House and the Office of Management and Budget.
NTD said the following about the White House's reply to the bogus Democrat report:
The White House slammed the Democrat report on the findings of the House Intelligence Committee impeachment inquiry on Dec. 3, saying that the document “reads like the ramblings of a basement blogger straining to prove something when there is evidence of nothing.”
“At the end of a one-sided sham process, Chairman Schiff and the Democrats utterly failed to produce any evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump. This report reflects nothing more than their frustrations,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.
The Democrat report repeats the allegation—long promoted by the Democrats—that President Donald Trump sought political gain by withholding security aid and the prospect of a White House meeting to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political opponent, Joe Biden. Over the course of two months, the impeachment inquiry failed to produce any first-hand evidence to substantiate that allegation.
Over the course of 300 pages, the Democrat report presents no direct evidence of Trump directing anyone to carry out the scheme alleged by the Democrats. Just four paragraphs into the storyline, the report references a presumption Ambassador Gordon Sondland made about a connection between the possibility of a White House meeting and the prospect of assurance by Ukraine to conduct an investigation.
