The documents explicitly cite that the impeachment articles failed to allege any crime at all and were a “brazen” attempt to interfere with the 2020 presidential elections. The response came as Dems filed their brief for the proceedings.
The House of Representatives, controlled by Dems, impeached the president last month. President Trump is accused of ‘abuse of power and obstruction of Congress’ without nan. He has denied wrongdoing and branded the case against him as a “hoax”.
