President Donald Trump's lawyers defended him against articles of impeachment Saturday morning, arguing it’s the Democrats trying to interfere in elections by seeking to remove Trump from the 2020 ballot for doing “absolutely nothing wrong.” White House Counsel Pat Cipollone said Democrats have no case and are doing damage to democracy by trying to undermine the will of American voters.

"On September 24, before Speaker Pelosi had any idea what President Trump and President Zelenskyy actually said on the July 25 call, she called for an impeachment inquiry into President Trump. In the interest of full transparency, and to show that he had done nothing wrong, President Trump took the unprecedented step of declassifying the call transcript so that the American people could see for themselves exactly what the two presidents discussed."

Chairman Adam Schiff is right about one thing. There IS a cover-up going on. He covered up:— Kevin McCarthy (@GOPLeader) January 25, 2020
→ His contact with the whistleblower.
→ The fact that there was no evidence of Russia collusion.
→ The truth from coming out by keeping witnesses from answering GOP questions. pic.twitter.com/vixNw5pEv4

This is interesting. There's no interest in attending the impeachment trial. More evidence that the Democrats are living in a bubble of their own making. https://t.co/cvcMA5gVJ4— Susan Shelley (@Susan_Shelley) January 25, 2020
