'Why Are They Doing This to Me?' Trump Asks Friends at Mar-a-Lago, While Legal Team Officially Denie

‘Why Are They Doing This to Me?’ Trump Asks Friends at Mar-a-Lago, While Legal Team Officially Denies Impeachment Charges
The president said he “can’t understand why” he is impeached

By PETER WADE

President Donald Trump’s legal team officially responded to last week’s Senate summons that notified the president that if he is convicted during the impeachment trial, he will be removed from office.

Trump’s response came in a six-page letter on Saturday, according to the New York Times, where his lawyers blasted the impeachment charges, calling into question their legality and claiming the Democrats were attempting to not only “interfere” with the coming election, but to undo the 2016 results.

“The articles of impeachment submitted by House Democrats are a dangerous attack on the right of the American people to freely choose their president,” the response read.

The documents, written by lawyers representing the president Pat A. Cipollone and Jay Sekulow, continued, “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. President Trump categorically and unequivocally denies each and every allegation in both articles of impeachment.”

1. I guess he doesn't understand. He is completely delusional.

His brain must be wired so strangely that he "knows" everything he thinks and does is good.

Even if someone tried to explain it, he'd get mad and that would be it.

If there is any justice in this world, he will soon be out of that office, one way or the other, and then he will be toast.

5. After 3 years . . .

Mr Trump hasn't yet realized he has neither the interest or skill set to do the job?

Did he think the election was like a sports game, you win and get a trophy, you take it home and admire it? Job done?

The POTUS job: once you win it, then the REALLY hard work starts!

He had no idea, still doesn't,and never will.

But his lawyers will bluff and bluster, because that is all they have. Not a good legal defense, really.

Can't wait for one of them to come out with:
"Remove Trump? If that succeeds, it will disrupt the space-time continuum, a black hole will open above America, and everyone will be sucked into it!"

6. How can he possibly deny Obstruction? He allows no documents, no testimony, no depositions.

The Constitution (my copy, not Allan Dershowitz's) says the Legislative will oversee the Executive. How can the Legislature oversee an Executive who refuses to comply and who refuses to inform? Not just in the Ukraine case, in every case.

This is not an aberration. This is his normal operating mode. It will continue and it will get worse, until he is out of Office.

8. Isn't It Just The Other Way Around?....

Trump successfully made an unlawful attempt in 2016 to overturn the real results of the 2016 election by getting the Russians & Putin to interfere with that election and brazenly interfered with manipulating and interfering with the 2020 election by extorting the Ukrainians and asking China for their help.

That's why he's been impeached and should be thrown out of the White House.

9. He is coming undone .

Some one who knows him said,if you want to destroy Trump,attack his ego and Image. Well that has happened.

And with his mental health going south in a major way,won't be long he will explode in a public forum. We are now in the area were his actions need a monitor 24/7.

13. His Narcissistic Personality Disorder is on full display

Since he surrounds himself with "yes men" he has no perspective of what's really going on.
