After Witnesses Blow Apart Trump’s Impeachment Defense, White House Issues Deranged Statement Claiming Trump ‘Did Nothing Wrong’

On Tuesday, House Democrats released the transcripts of two pivotal Ukraine witnesses that completely dismantled Presiden Donald Trump’s impeachment defense, and the White House response is nothing but a delusion.

The transcripts reveal that there was a quid pro quo. The Ukrainians knew about it, and Trump was in the middle directing the whole impeachable scheme.

However, the White House responded by declaring a complete exoneration of the president.

“Both transcripts released today show there is even less evidence for this illegitimate impeachment sham than previously thought. Ambassador Sondland squarely states that he “did not know, (and still does not know) when, why or by whom the aid was suspended,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

The statement goes onto say that Sondland “presumed” there was a link to the aid—but cannot identify any solid source for that assumption, and claimed that “Volker’s testimony confirms there could not have been a quid pro quo because the Ukrainians did not know about the military aid hold at the time.” The statement concludes by claiming that Trump “has done nothing wrong.”

The idea that Trump did nothing wrong is directly contradicted by the transcripts. Trump seems to think that directing members of his administration to talk to Rudy Giuliani was a way to keep his hands clean, and if things went south, have Giuliani take the fall.

The White House appears to believe that repeating over, and over, and over that “Trump did nothing wrong” will make a fact. They are wrong.
