Trump Brags About Concealing Impeachment Evidence: ‘We Have All the Material, They Don’t’

President Trump said he’s happy with the way the impeachment trial is going thus far because his administration has not released “materials” that would hurt his cause.

“When we released that conversation all hell broke out with the Democrats,” Trump said. “Because they said, ‘Wait a minute, this is much different than [what Adam Schiff] told us.’ ”

The president continued, “So, we’re doing very well. I got to watch [the impeachment trial] enough. I thought our team did a very good job. But honestly, we have all the material. They don’t have the material.”

The Trump administration has exerted executive privilege while ignoring subpoenas for documents and have directed individuals not to respond to subpoena requests since the beginning of the impeachment process. For comparison, the Clinton administration turned over more than 90,000 pages of documents and material during its impeachment.

Usually, the Trump administration either refuses to explain their stonewalling or excuses their lack of cooperation away by bashing the investigation, calling it illegitimate or a witch hunt. But here, rather astonishingly, Trump seems to be flatly admitting to withholding evidence.

    He really is a disgusting excuse for a man and a dreadful leader. I’m amazed that even his own side want to hang on to him.

      Hello David. They crave power more than anything. They would lose power if they go up against tRump. They have pride only when facing the powerless and cave in the face of the powerful. This is not a government, it is a group of thugs run by a crime family assisted by Russia’s leader Putin. Hugs

        Also, they would be the subject of tRump’s Twitter wrath if they went up against him — which would seem rather inconsequential in most cases but not so when it comes to him because his word in gospel to his supporters.

          Hello Nan. Yes I was read that Republicans in swing states are in a no win situation. If they vote for witnesses and documents tRump will tweet against them causing the base to go against them. If they vote with Moscow Mitch and tRump they lose everyone else. Take Susan Collins. She needs the base to support her, but the state is trending blue and she is in trouble with it looking unlikely she can win right now. Hugs

    Withholding evidence – yet ANOTHER impeachable offense. He’s literally impeached and convicted himself SEVERAL TIMES on live TV, yet the Dims are going with a namby-pamby offense, not bothering to use the ammo he’s freely given them, but they’re also ignoring the power of the Media – if the Media would cooperate, that is. And the polls? Have you seen the polls? It’s split like 54% to 46%, in favor of impeachment & removal.

    I just don’t understand this country anymore, Scottie. And everyone in the Toybox galaxy.

      Hello Dennis. Plus 71% want to witnesses and documents. The reading I have done says a lot of the Republicans seemed not to know the things the House Managers are telling them. They look “uncomfortable” is one way I have seen it phrased. I think the Republicans have shown they desire power more than they value democracy. They really do think the right to rule belongs to them. They seem driven to create a one party control like China has with them as the power in charge. Hugs
