After reading the GOP’s rebuttal to the Democrats’ impeachment report, which is expected to be released Tuesday, President Trump said the left has no case against him and wondered if he could take the “impeachment hoax” to the Supreme Court.
“Just landed in the United Kingdom, heading to London for NATO meetings tomorrow. Prior to landing I read the Republicans Report on the Impeachment Hoax,” he tweeted. “Great job! Radical Left has NO CASE. Read the Transcripts. Shouldn’t even be allowed. Can we go to Supreme Court to stop?”

The GOP argues in its 123-page report that “[t]he evidence presented does not prove any of these Democrat allegations, and none of the Democrats’ witnesses testified to having evidence of bribery, extortion, or any high crime or misdemeanor.”
Tomorrow, the Democrats will be voting in a closed-door session on their impeachment report.
Our report is out. No secret bunker meeting needed.

House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff said the GOP’s response is only a document meant to appease President Trump.
“The Minority’s rebuttal document, intended for an audience of one, ignores voluminous evidence that the president used the power of his office to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political rival by withholding military aid and a White House meeting the President of Ukraine desperately sought. In so doing, the President undermined our national security and the integrity of our elections,” Schiff said. “Tellingly, the Minority dismisses this as just part of the President’s ‘outside the beltway’ thinking. It is more accurately, outside the law and constitution, and a violation of his oath of office.”
The GOP report ignores voluminous evidence Trump used his office to press Ukraine into investigating Biden by withholding military aid and a White House meeting.
They say this is just Trump’s “outside the beltway” thinking. It’s more accurately outside the law and Constitution. https://t.co/jBNdd6knWP
