For better or for worse, Americans are growing accustomed to the idea that their President will be forced to execute his oath of office under constant duress instigated by the Democratic Party.
The attacks on President Trump have been ceaseless, and have ranged from the absurd to the downright despicable. We’ve heard that he’s unfit for office, that he’s secretly a Russian agent, and that he is lying about his health.
Now, in the latest attempt to usurp Donald Trump, we’re also being told that he bribed or extorted Ukraine for an advantage in the 2020 election. In the case of this malarky, Democrats have begun a “formal impeachment inquiry”, and the President seems open to the idea of stepping up to the plate to put an end to the shenanigans himself.
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invited President Donald Trump to testify in front of investigators in the House impeachment inquiryahead of a week that will see several key witnesses appear publicly.
Pushing back against accusations from the Republican president that the process has been stacked against him, Pelosi said Trump is welcome to appear or answer questions in writing, if he chooses.
“If he has information that is exculpatory, that means ex, taking away, culpable, blame, then we look forward to seeing it,” she said in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” Trump “could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants,” she said.
Then came something unexpected.
On Monday, Trump tweeted he might be willing to offer written testimony: “She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!”
The President has been relentless in his criticism of the Democrats’ unwillingness to legislate during this impeachment charade, openly calling for Pelosi and others to get back to work.
