Trump rails on impeachment: Pelosi ‘hates the Republican Party’

by Editorial Team

President Trump on Tuesday said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is doing a “disservice” to the country with the House’s approval of two articles of impeachment.

“She hates the Republican Party. She hates all of the people that voted for me and the Republic Party,” Trump told reporters at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida following his video conference with US troops.

“She’s doing a tremendous disservice to the country. She’s not doing a good job,” he continued. “Some people think that she doesn’t know what she’s doing. … They had no evidence at all. They had no crime.”

Pelosi is holding up sending the articles of impeachment passed by the House last Wednesday to the GOP-controlled Senate to ensure that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell agrees to conduct a fair trial.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has asked McConnell to subpoena documents from the White House and subpoena witnesses with direct knowledge of Trump’s July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to testify.

But Trump said McConnell controls the process in the Senate the same way Democrats were in control in the House.

“He has the right to do whatever he wants. He’s the head of the Senate,” the president said. “People remember they treated us very unfairly. They didn’t give us due process, they didn’t give us a lawyer. They didn’t give us anything. Now they come to the Senate and they want everything.”

The president said he has a perfect case and the Democrats have no evidence.

“Now they get to the Senate, and now we have the majority. And it’s up to Mitch McConnell. And we have the majority, and now they want McConnell to do wonderful things for them. He’s going to do what he wants to do,” Trump said.

He also lashed out at Rep. Adam Schiff, who was the point person in the House impeachment inquiry as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, referring to him as a “sick, corrupt politician.”

“Fortunately we have a president who was able to plow through all of the stuff that went on and that goes on,” Trump said.
