If Impeached, Trump Wants Senate Trial, and He Has His Witness List Ready
Nov. 22 (EIRNS)—President Donald Trump told the “Fox and Friends” broadcast this morning that if the House votes to impeach him, “I want a trial.” He wants Hunter Biden to be called to testify, and the whistleblower, but there is only one person he wants more to testify than Biden, he said, “and that is Adam Schiff.... I want to see Adam Schiff testify about the whistleblower.” He explained that Schiff had made up a statement about the President’s July 25 phone call with the President of Ukraine, and “I want to find out: Why did he make up my statement?”
Trump was in fine, feisty form in his hour-long interview. He is looking forward to the release of the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, followed by the report from “Bull Durham” (i.e., U.S. Attorney John Durham) into Russiagate, which he predicts “will be perhaps the biggest scandal in the history of our country.... This was an overthrow attempt at the Presidency. They tried to overthrow the Presidency.... It’s just starting to come out, but I think this is nothing compared to what you’ll see over the next couple of weeks,” he forecasted.
Discussing the terrible witnesses testifying against him in the House inquiry, whom he does not even know, President Trump summarized the war in Washington:
“I come to Washington. So you’ve had Bush, and you have never-Trumpers. So you have Bush, you have Clinton, you have Obama, so you have 24 years of people in positions, right? Then I come in with no experience, which is a good thing. But I know life. And I come in and I end up with thousands of people that are never-Trumpers, Clinton people; and sometimes the never-Trumpers are worse than Clinton and Obama people, believe me. I mean, it’s an amazing phenomenon....
“With no experience, I come to Washington. I’ve defeated the Clinton dynasty. I’ve defeated the Bush dynasty, and I’ve defeated the Obama whatever-you-want-to-call-it, right? The three biggest. I defeated them all at one time with no experience. The hatred is incredible.”
