President Trump went on the offensive after the Democrat's disastrous impeachment hearing on Wednesday by urging them to move forward with impeachment. After Pelosi obliged he responded with a statement from White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham.

According to The Daily Wire:

After the rather disastrous House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing on Wednesday — which included only one Republican-requested witness allowed by the Democrats and was highlighted by a Democrat witness using the president’s 13-year-old son’s name as a punchline — President Trump issued an early morning message to his political opponents in the House Thursday: “if you are going to impeach me, do it now, fast.”

 

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham also issued a defiant and optimistic response to Pelosi and her fellow Democrats.


Pelosi’s decision to move forward with submitting articles of impeachment against the president followed the House Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday in which four law professors gave their expert opinions on whether or not Trump’s alleged actions were impeachable.

Only one of the witnesses, George Washington University Law School’s Jonathan Turley, was a Republican-requested witness. While the three Democratic witnesses all maintain the Democrats’ pro-impeachment arguments, Turley — a self-described Trump critic who voted against Trump in 2016 and for both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton — argued that there is indeed an “abuse of power” going on, but by the Democrat-led Congress, not Trump, and that impeaching on such thin evidence sets a “dangerous” precedent.

President Trump has not had any of his lawyers participate in the process but it is unclear if this will change now that Pelosi has urged the drafting of the articles.
