Trump Denies Everything
(including stuff he tweets)
President Trump denied claims he told Bolton aid to Ukraine was tied to an investigation of the Bidens in a tweet, which CNN legal analyst Carrie Cordero says could affect President Trump's executive privilege defense, because Trump made the tweet public. It is no longer under executive privilege.
President Donald Trump's defense team member Ken Starr used the opposite argument defending the President's use of executive privilege than he did in the impeachment case against President Bill Clinton in 1998.
Why do you figure that? Its simple- Clinton is a Democrat and Trump is a Republican, and he demanded all the testimony from all witnesses he was a bulldog getting it to nail Clinton, but he is not even suggesting the facts now.
If things in the Trump administration couldn’t get any more crazy; here’s a crazier than crazy, and these people are in our leadership, good god. Trump spiritual adviser and White House staff member Paula White is defending her recent prayer at her church in Florida that "satanic pregnancies" be miscarried. That any pregnancies that are in a satanic womb be miscarried right now.
Trump denies even knowing Lev Parnas yeta 90-minute recording in which President Donald Trump is speaking with indicted businessman Lev Parnas about removing former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden says Sen. Joni Ernst's (R-IA) comments about the impeachment testimony impacting Biden's chances in the state prove the real motivation behind Trump's attack on the former vice president and his son. Trump is afraid Biden will be the nominee so yes he tried to get dirt to rig the election.
President Donald Trump claimed early Monday morning that he “NEVER” communicated to former national security adviser John Bolton that military aid to Ukraine was conditioned on the launch of probes into his domestic political rivals, as White House aides and allies sought to beat back intensified calls for Bolton’s testimony at the Senate impeachment trial.
Trump allegedly told Bolton in August that the administration should continue withholding $391 million in security assistance until Ukrainian officials helped with investigations targeting former Vice President Joe Biden and other Democrats, according to a draft of Bolton’s forthcoming book.
President Donald Trump’s lawyers, who launched his defense at his impeachment trial in the Senate Saturday morning, have claimed that they will respond substantively to Democrats’ methodical case for why the president should be removed from office. But shortly before the Senate convened for the first day of the White House defense, the president teed up the proceedings with a tweet strong on name calling and short on evidence. His tweet-Our case against lyin’, cheatin’, liddle’ Adam “Shifty” Schiff, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer, Nervous Nancy Pelosi, their leader, dumb as a rock AOC, & the entire Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrat Party, starts today at 10:00 A.M. on @FoxNews, @OANN or Fake News @CNN or Fake News MSDN. His targets include two lawmakers, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who have no role in the impeachment trial.
Trumps tweets should show to the Trumpsters that the man is unhinged, a criminal, a thug, a liar and cheat. This man is dangerous to our republic.
