President Trump weighed-in this week on Adam Schiff’s Ukraine-Impeachment obsession; labeling the proceedings a total “hoax” and claiming “it’s over” after multiple days of disastrous testimony on Capitol Hill.
“Let me tell you, it’s a hoax. It’s a disgrace. It’s an embarrassment to our country. Nancy Pelosi has done a terrible job as Speaker, there’s never been a Speaker that’s done so little. She’s totally incompetent,” said Trump.
“We have no due process. Not only did we win today, it’s over,” he added.
Watch the President’s comments above.

President Trump continued to blast the Democrats’ latest Ukraine-Impeachment fantasy from the White House Wednesday; saying the entire spectacle is a “Kangaroo Court headed by Little Shifty Schiff.”
“Right now, you have a kangaroo court headed by Little Shifty Schiff. We don’t have lawyers, we don’t have witnesses, we don’t have anything,” said the President. “It’s a scam, it’s a big scam.”

President Trump also weighed-in Wednesday on Ambassador Sondland’s ongoing testimony; reading an excerpt where the diplomat confirms he was told there is “no quid pro quo” with the Ukraine.
“Just a quick comment on what’s going on with Ambassador Sondland, I just noticed one thing, and I would say that means it’s all over,” said Trump.
“’What do you want from Ukraine,’ he asks me… Trump told me, ‘I want nothing, I want nothing, I want No Quid Pro Quo, just tell Zelensky to do the right thing,” said the President before departing the White House.”

DEVELOPING: President Trump Says He’ll ‘Strongly Consider’ Testifying in Impeachment Inquiry
President Trump responded to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s invitation to appear before the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry Monday; saying he’ll “strongly consider” the option in “order to get Congress focused again.”
“Our Crazy, Do Nothing (where’s USMCA, infrastructure, lower drug pricing & much more?) Speaker of the House, Nervous Nancy Pelosi, who is petrified by her Radical Left knowing she will soon be gone (they & Fake News Media are her BOSS), suggested on Sunday’s DEFACE THE NATION that I testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt. She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!” posted Trump on social media.
