President Donald Trump went off on Twitter Friday in a series of tweets, and one of which claimed he can't be impeached because he "hasn’t done anything wrong!"
You can’t Impeach someone who hasn’t done anything wrong!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1572648539.0
Legal analysts have two schools of thought on Trump's bribe to Ukraine: The Wall Street Journal said that Trump is too stupid to actually commit any quid pro quo. The other comment from legal scholars is that it's a textbook example of an abuse of power and extortion.
Trump and Republicans have opted for a "don't believe your lying eyes," approach to the scandal. Behind closed doors, they're in a panic, but in public, they're telling people to read the summary of the call and see that it has nothing to do with former Vice President Joe Biden. The summary posted by the White House specifically says Biden's name more than once and has Trump say "I need you to do us a favor though," after he was asked for more weapons for Ukraine to fight back Russia.
As a fact check a screen capture of the summary appears below:
