In the midst of the World Economic Forms in Davos, Switzerland, Trump was asked about the impeachment taking place in his absence.
While saying he wishes he was there to stare down Schiff and Nadler, Trump also characterized the House managers tasked with prosecuting him as “sleazebags.”
Love to Attend
Trump is obviously out of the country and unable to attend the impeachment, but even if he were here in the States (and when he return), it is unlikely you will see him attending the Senate sessions.
Trump stated, “I’d love to go, wouldn’t that be great?” he said when asked whether he would attend. “Sit right in the front row and stare at their corrupt faces, and I’d love to do it.”
He then admitted that his attorneys would probably lose their minds if Trump were to walk through those doors and attend a session right now.
When asked specifically about the House managers prosecuting the case, Trump stated, “First of all, Jerrold Nadler, I’ve known him a long time, he’s a sleazebag. Everybody knows that.”
Trump would then go on to mock Schiff for his fake “aggrieved” act he keeps putting on during the impeachment proceedings.
Trump added, “I watched the lies from Adam Schiff.
“He’s a liar and he’s a fraud.”
“These are major sleazebags.
“It’s a total hoax. It’s a disgrace. They talked about their tremendous case and it’s all done.
“They had no case….It’s a con-job.”
Schiff has countered that the Republicans “have no witnesses to absolve the President of the facts.”
Technically, Schiff is correct on the witnesses, but where he gets it wrong is on the facts.
The Dems have yet to present anything but hearsay, opinions, and feelings, none of which are valid in a court of law.
There are no witnesses to absolve Trump because there are no facts to back up the allegations made by Democrats.
In about two weeks, this is all going to be over and when the dust settles, Democrats are going to have to answer for wasting time, money, and weaponizing impeachment simply because they are still upset about how the 2016 election turned out.
