Just as President Trump "deflected all responsibility and blamed others for the Ukraine scandal, he has done the same by simply saying 'I don’t take responsibility at all' for the pandemic," writes Barry Berke
"There is one administration official who deserves to lose his position for once again putting his own personal and political interests before those of the nation. The American people will make that decision in November," writes Barry Berke.
Democrats' lawyer Barry Berke on President Trump's impeachable offenses: "When you talk about the ABCs of potential presidential abuses, it is extraordinary that the President's conduct was a trifecta, checking all three"
Barry Berke, Dems counsel, played 3 recordings of Pres Trump:
1) Trump saying, "I have the right to do whatever I want as president."
2) Trump saying Russia if you're listening, get Hillary Clinton's emails.
3) Trump saying on WH lawn that Ukraine should investigate Bidens.
Barry Berke, Counsel for Democrats: It's hard to imagine that anyone could dispute the facts of Ukraine call. Pres. Trump did what a president of our nation, what a president is not allowed to do.
He adds, "President Trump's actions are impeachable...They threaten our republic."
WH wouldn't send reps but Barry Berke, Dems counsel, just played sound of Pres Trump saying, "I have the right to do whatever I want as president."
Berke says: That is as wrong as when Pres Nixon said something similar. "He does not have the right to do whatever he wants."
Wow. House counsel Barry Berke just busted @CLewandowski_ telling a major lie on national television -- Lewandowski claimed no memory of any interaction with Sessions as outlined in the Mueller report.
Lewandowski stammers something about his memory failing him.
