Trump melts down over impeachment trial in Twitter flurry: ‘Most unfair and corrupt hearing in Congressional history!’

Published

President Donald Trump tweeted out a series of denials and attacks to defend himself from impeachment.

The president started off Thursday by summarizing claims made by a former Bush administration official on Fox News, and then repeated false claims made by his defense attorneys during the Senate trial.

“In an Impeachment, you can’t use a work of fiction as the theory for the case, filling in gaps with presumptions against the President,” Trump tweeted, paraphrasing former State Department official Robert Charles. “It was a weak presentation, self indulgent, and he didn’t deliver the goods.”

Trump’s attorneys falsely claimed that House Democrats barred Republicans and the president’s legal team from the impeachment inquiry, and the president repeated those claims in his next tweet.

“The Democrat House would not give us lawyers, or not one witness, but now demand that the Republican Senate produce the witnesses that the House never sought, or even asked for?” Trump tweeted. “They had their chance, but pretended to rush. Most unfair and corrupt hearing in Congressional history!”

“No matter what you give to the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, it will never be enough!” he added.

He then made misleading comparisons — addressed by Rep. Adam Schiff during his opening statements — between his freeze on Ukraine aid and previous pauses on foreign aid.

“The Democrats and Shifty Schiff, whose presentation to the Senate was loaded with lies and misrepresentations, are refusing to state that the Obama Administration withheld aid from many countries including Ukraine, Pakistan, Philippines, Egypt, Honduras, and Mexico,” Trump tweeted. “Witch Hunt!”

Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.

Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

Published

on

President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
