Trump Calls Inquiry No Due Process Scam as Public Impeachment Hearings Loom

Republican President Donald Trump slammed the impeachment inquiry against him—spearheaded by House Democrats with little GOP support—as a “no due process scam” on Nov. 12, a day before public impeachment hearings are due to start.

“Why is such a focus put on 2nd and 3rd hand witnesses, many of whom are Never Trumpers, or whose lawyers are Never Trumpers, when all you have to do is read the phone call (transcript) with the Ukrainian President and see first hand?” Trump said in a statement.

“He and others also stated that there was no pressure put on him to investigate Sleepy Joe Biden even though, as President, I have an obligation to look into corruption, and Bidens actions, on tape, about firing the prosecutor, and his sons taking millions of dollars, with no knowledge or talent, from a Ukrainian energy company, and more millions taken from China, and now reports of other companies and countries also giving him big money, are certainly looking very corrupt (to put it mildly!) to me,” he added.

“Both Bidens should be forced to testify in this No Due Process Scam!”
