    This stuff is priceless.

    Trump's legal team spelled out in great detail exactly why the House Democrat's partisan impeachment was a total sham. It illustrates why Democrats wanted to use Russian Collusion and not the Whistleblower as evidence of wrongdoing. It also shows that Democrats knew their arguments wouldn't stand up in a court of law which renders their claims of obstruction of congress totally unfounded. When Trump took congress to court in response to their demands for documents and witnesses....they immediately withdrew their demands. Then they rushed to impeach instead.

    Trump’s attorneys issue a powerful response to the Articles of Impeachment
    By Andrea Widburg
    Anyone who has watched a Trump rally or followed Trump’s Twitter feed knows that he’s been open about his disdain for the House’s impeachment proceedings. However, now that the House formally delivered the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, Trump’s lawyers can finally make known the President’s official legal stand against the Democrats’ blatant political effort to overturn the 2016 election.

    In five-and-a-half fiery pages, Jay Alan Sekulow and Pat A. Cipollone attack both the impeachment process and the legal and factual bases (or lack thereof) underlying the articles of impeachment. Sekulow and Cipollone understand that the real audience is the American people, so the document is written in ordinary English, not legalese.

    Regarding the entire impeachment, the lawyers state that this warped process attacks the American people and free elections:

    The Articles of Impeachment submitted by House Democrats are a dangerous attack on the right of the American people to freely choose their President. This is a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election-now just months away. The highly partisan and reckless obsession with impeaching the President began the day he was inaugurated and continues to this day.​

    For the first Article of Impeachment, which alleges “abuse of power,” Sekulow and Cipollone explain that, contrary to the Constitution’s demand for “high Crimes and Misdemeanors,” the first Article fails to state any legal violation. Not only does it fail to identify actual legal wrongdoing, the facts alleged also fail to show that Trump abused his powers:

    At all times, the President has faithfully and effectively executed the duties of his Office on behalf of the American people. The President's actions on the July 25,2019, telephone call with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine (the "July 25 call"), as well as on the earlier April 21, 2019, telephone call (the "April 21 call"), and in all surrounding and related events, were constitutional, perfectly legal, completely appropriate, and taken in furtherance of our national interest.​

    The attorneys also note that the best evidence is the telephone call transcript, which Trump released immediately. Ukrainian officials, from President Zelenskyy on down, all support the transcript and the tenor of Trump’s deals with Ukraine.

    It's a childish, and ridiculous statement and defense, written for kindergarteners imo.

    Geez, I hope he has a better defense than that......??

    The smart thing to do would just ignore the action all together.

    The blob thinks being constantly on the attack always serves him. Not the case

    The fact is, most hyper-partisan hacks, who have their head buried in Trump's posterior, would think that Trump's team kicked the "House Democrats In The Balls."
    Where as liberal Constitutional scholars, think otherwise.
    ‘Alternative law:’ Constitutional scholar on the Dershowitz defense of Trump

    So, there we have it! Each side's hyper-partisans have their take, but who is Constitutionally right?
