The lies have been flying from the left in an attempt to toss President Trump out of office. All of which have been proven false.
So, what is the President’s advice to his legal counsel for the Senate impeachment trial? It is to “just be honest.”
You heard that right, folks. Even though the Democrats are lying against him, the President will not stoop to their level. He wants to be completely honest because he is innocent.
During an interview with FX News at the March for Life Trump told reporters, “What my people have to do is just be honest. Just tell the truth. But they say it doesn’t have to be a crime…Well, maybe it doesn’t have to be a crime, but can you imagine being impeached if you didn’t commit a crime?”
The Hill reports:
Many Republicans and even some Democrats complained late Friday about House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) citing a CBS News report that the White House had warned GOP senators their heads would be “on a pike” if they voted against the president in the trial, with lawmakers insisting it was not true.
Trump’s call for his legal team to be truthful in its arguments is sure to raise some eyebrows given the president’s own propensity for making false or misleading statements; The Washington Post fact-checker determined that Trump made 16,241 false or misleading claims in his first three years in office.
The president’s defense team also faced criticism for making inaccurate claims during the debate over proposed amendments to the trial rules that would have subpoenaed witnesses and evidence.
In one instance, White House counsel Pat Cipollone said Democrats held hearings in the House impeachment inquiry that were closed to Republicans when in fact several GOP members and their staff counsel attended and asked questions.
President Trump also spoke out against the Democrats saying that the impeachment managers are the guilty ones by “telling so many lies” and using “so much exaggeration” during their arguments.
