President Trump is poised to call Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment bluff in the coming days; preparing a letter urging the top Democrat to hold an official vote or abandon her latest push to remove him from office.


“We’ll be issuing a letter. As everybody knows we’ve been treated very unfairly, very different from anybody else if you go over — not only history, I mean you go over any aspect of life you’ll see how unfairly we’ve been treated,” said the President at the White House.

I believe the senators look at this as a hoax, a Witch Hunt. It’s a disgrace. Should have never happened

“I think this. We have a great relationship in the Senate. I have a 95 percent approval rating in the Republican party. I believe the Senate and I haven’t spoken to that many senators, but I believe the senators look at this as a hoax, a Witch Hunt. It’s a disgrace. Should have never happened,” the president added.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy demanded Speaker Nancy Pelosi “halt the impeachment inquiry” Thursday; saying the American people deserve “fairness and transparency” on such an important issue.
“I’ve written to Speaker Pelosi to halt the impeachment inquiry until we can receive public answers to the following questions. Given the enormity of the question at hand—impeaching a duly elected president—the American public deserves fairness and transparency,” McCarthy posted on social media.


“In his letter to Pelosi, McCarthy asks a number of questions, including whether Pelosi plans to hold a full House vote on authorizing the impeachment inquiry, whether she plans to grant subpoena powers to both the committee chairs and the ranking members, and whether she’ll allow trump’s lawyers to attend the hearings,” reports Fox News.
