White House Issues Stern Statement Regarding ‘Frivolous’ Impeachment on Eve of Trial

And that’s not all they said…

Tuesday will be a day that Americans won’t soon forget, as the national attention turns to the Senate and to the impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump.

This is the moment that we’ve long been waiting for, after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s bizarre stunt in which she withheld the articles of impeachment themselves from being transmitted to the Senate.  Democrats believe that this would either allow further damning information to become public, or give Pelosi some leverage over Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.  McConnell has certainly felt no added pressure, and the only new evidence against Trump comes from Lev Parnas – an indicted former associate of Rudy Giuliani who could very likely be looking for some way to reduce his coming sentence.

Less than 24 hours before the last leg of this national nightmare is set to get underway, the White House is lashing out, calling the entire process “dangerous”…among other things.

President Trump’s legal team argued that the House’s articles of impeachment were frivolous and dangerous should be swiftly rejected by the Senate, offering a detailed legal defense for why he shouldn’t be removed from office just a day before his trial kicks off in earnest.

Mr. Trump’s team submitted a 171-page legal filing with the Senate Monday that argues the impeachment articles approved by the Democratic-controlled House last month included no violation of law and describes the president as operating in the national interest in his dealings with Ukraine, which are central to the impeachment articles.

The language of the statement was stern, to say the least.

“The Articles themselves—and the rigged process that brought them here—are a brazenly political act by House Democrats that must be rejected,” Mr. Trump’s lawyers, led by White House counsel Pat Cipollone, wrote in the filings, which include a 110-page brief and 61 pages of backup materials. “They debase the grave power of impeachment and disdain the solemn responsibility that power entails.”

Mitch McConnell has promised the President both a swift and exonerating trail in the Senate, with both he and the Trump legal team believing that a trial with few, if any witnesses will be the most appropriate course of action.
