Trump turns tables on Biden amid impeachment push, claims Dems threatened Ukraine

Quote:
A defiant President Trump said during a press conference in New York Wednesday that he wants "full transparency" not only over the "so-called whistleblower" allegations leveled against him, but also "from Joe Biden and his son Hunter on the millions of dollars that have been quickly and easily taken out of Ukraine and China."

Trump additionally demanded "transparency from Democrats who went to Ukraine and attempted to force the new president ... to do things that they wanted under the form of political threat. They threatened him if he didn't do things -- now that's what they're accusing me of, but I didn't do it."

The aggressive move signaled that the White House would seek to turn the tables against Democrats who have initiated an impeachment inquiry, following the whistleblower's complaint that Trump had improperly pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden. Zelensky, speaking across from Trump just an hour earlier, told reporters he did not feel "pushed" at all in his conversations with the president.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough falls for 'Daily Show' parody of Trump-Ukraine call transcript

Quote:
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough appeared to be fooled Wednesday by a parody transcript of a July phone conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The parody transcript was tweeted by Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” amid claims that Trump improperly withheld military funds from Ukraine until it investigated then-Vice President Joe Biden’s dealings in the country.

The White House released an unclassified transcript of the July 25 call between Trump and Zelensky, during which the president made no explicit reference to withholding military aid.

Experts break down revelations from Trumps' call with Ukrainian president: 'Nothing burger'

Quote:
"The phone call is kind of a world away from what we were told it was going to be," said Bruce. "We were told it was a quid-pro-quo...but, in reality, it seems very different than that...We're all kind of smiling here with some of these developments.

Wall Street Journal editorial board member Bill McGurn agreed with Bruce, calling the phone call a "nothing burger," and he slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for falsely declaring the opening of an "official impeachment investigation," which technically requires a House vote.

Assistant editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial page and Fox News contributor James Freeman believes the Democrats may have fallen into a trap.

So far it looks like the dems are cooking another

Nothing Burger.

we'll see i guess, but I don't see any real meat to their accusations so far.

If this goes over like RussiaGate it makes things even worse for them.

CNN's chief legal analyst: Democrats' hearing on Ukraine call didn't 'have that much juice to it'

Quote:
Following a hearing held by the Democrat-led House Intelligence Committee to investigate possible impeachment charges against President Trump on Thursday, CNN's chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said the proceeding lacked "juice" and may not have contained enough bite to move the needle.

Rashida Tlaib leads ‘impeach the motherf*****’ chant on Capitol Hill
September 27, 2019 | Frieda Powers | Print Article

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a sitting member of the United States Congress collecting a taxpayer-funded salary, spent part of her workday leading a profane chant against President Trump in front of the White House.

The Michigan lawmaker joined several of her Democratic colleagues on Thursday to speak to pro-impeachment demonstrators gathered on the East Lawn of the Capitol, at one point leading a chant with the controversial call to “impeach the motherf****r.”


(Video: Twitter/Roll Call)
The shameful display by Tlaib and other Democrats, including Reps. Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley, came during the pro-impeachment protest which also saw much praise for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her endorsement on Tuesday of the House’s impeachment inquiry.

Tlaib slammed the president in her remarks for putting “profits before our servicemen and women, before schools, before the environment.”

“This isn’t just about corruption,” she said. “This is about our way of life.”

“Can you imagine the outrage if I had put a t-shirt together like that for impeaching President Obama?” Rep. Bill Huizenga said, according to The Detroit News.


“First of all, my mother would have called me and told me, ‘Shame on you.’ Then I would have heard from my Republican colleagues asking me, ‘What in the world are you doing?’” the Michigan Republican said. “Then I would have to face myself in the mirror and my kids and explain what’s going on, at the same time I’m getting preachy about decorum and how we need civility in politics.”

Thursday’s pro-impeachment protesters at the White House were treated to more elected members of Congress railing against the sitting president.

Omar invoked the Constitution in her rant against Trump’s “abuse” of power.

While Tlaib and her colleagues continue to fuel their base and attack the president, stunts like the profane chants and disrespectful t-shirts only seem to drive home the point that it is the left that is disconnected from what America holds valuable.
