Donald Trump Fires Back After House Democrats Reveal Articles Of Impeachment

President Donald Trump was quick to respond on Tuesday morning after news broke that a group of House committees formally announced that they drafted two articles of impeachment against the president, including one for obstruction of Congress and one for abuse of power.

The allegations came after several weeks of live, televised witness hearings in front of both the House Intelligence Committee and most recently, the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Jerry Nadler, respectively.

The president took to social media to remind his supporters about what he thinks of the ongoing impeachment inquiry — even referring to the process as a “Witch Hunt,” a term he’s used repeatedly since the days of the Robert Mueller investigation.

He tore into both Nadler and Schiff in a series of Tuesday morning tweets.

“Nadler just said that I ‘pressured Ukraine to interfere in our 2020 Election.’ Ridiculous, and he knows that is not true. Both the President & Foreign Minister of Ukraine said, many times, that there “WAS NO PRESSURE.” Nadler and the Dems know this, but refuse to acknowledge!” Trump said.

“Shifty Schiff, a totally corrupt politician, made up a horrible and fraudulent statement, read it to Congress, and said those words came from me. He got caught, was very embarrassed, yet nothing happened to him for committing this fraud. He’ll eventually have to answer for this!” he tweeted.

He then fired off his go-to line.

The official wording from the Democrats’ allegations in the impeachment charges, in no uncertain terms, attempted to lay out a case that Trump was guilty of wrongdoing in his dealings with Ukraine in a July 25 phone call with President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“Using the powers of his high office, President Trump solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, in the 2020 United States Presidential election,” the opening paragraph read.

“He did so through a scheme or course of conduct that included soliciting the Government of Ukraine to publicly announce investigations that would benefit his reelection, harm the election prospects of a political opponent, and influence the 2020 United States Presidential election to his benefit.”

As the House is expected to take a formal vote on the matter as soon as next week, meeting their Christmas deadline, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham will have a vast amount of control on how the Senate’s handling of the matter will proceed. And Graham, being one of Trump’s top allies, will probably use that ability to make sure that Democrats fail to gain anymore ground.
