President Trump denied Monday that he had offered military aid to the president of Ukraine only if the country launched a probe into former vice president Joe Biden and his family, as the burgeoning controversy consumed the first day of Trump’s visit to the United Nations General Assembly.
“No, I didn’t,” Trump said when asked whether he told Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that he would obtain $250 million in stalled U.S. aid only if he agreed to investigate the Bidens. Slamming the former vice president for doing what he said was a “very, very bad thing,” Trump added: “I didn’t do it ... when you see the call [transcript], you’re going to be very surprised.”

Spoiler alert: We’re never going to see the transcript. He’ll say for a while that he’s going to release it, but he never will. Then they’ll say that the whole thing was litigated already and the American people want us to move on.

Donald Trump’s lawyers insist they don’t need to form an impeachment defense team.
Yet here’s what they have: At least 30 White House and Justice Department attorneys who have worked on related issues. Several personal lawyers for the president dealing with the subject. A lurking presence at Capitol Hill impeachment-focused hearings. Aggressive legal briefs and countersuits foiling efforts to gather fuel for potential proceedings. Near-daily media appearances discussing the topic.
This technically nonexistent yet omnipresent force has been critical in stymying Democrats’ attempts to build their case for removing Trump from office.

Tell me again how Trump secretly wants to be impeached and it would be terrible for Democrats.
