Talk to the hand!
That is pretty much what sources are saying the legal response has been from team Trump, and rightly so!
You CANNOT impeach a private citizen. This is cheap political theatre, and it is super petty.
I like President Trump MORE now that Democrats still will not leave him alone. The more they behave like this the more I will champion the 45th President of The United States.
Here are the latest reports:
The Red State Observer had more on the story:
Democrats demanded earlier today that President Donald Trump appear and testify at his coming Senate impeachment trial. This came after his lawyers released their initial rebuttals to the charges being made.
It didn’t take long for Trump to respond in exactly the fashion you’d expect. Namely, he told them to go pound sand.
This per CBS News.
The attorneys representing President Donald Trump in his Senate impeachment trial said Thursday he will not testify at the proceedings next week, dismissing demands by House Democrats for his testimony as a “public relations stunt.”…
Just The News reported these facts:
Trump attorneys Bruce Castor and David Schoen wrote to Rep. Raskin. "As you certainly know, there is no such thing as a negative inference in this unconstitutional proceeding."
They added. "Your letter only confirms what is known to everyone: you cannot prove your allegations against the 45th President of the United States, who is now a private citizen.
The use of our Constitution to bring a purported impeachment proceeding is much too serious to try to play these games."
