The White House calls Trump's 'impeachment' hearing a bad day for Democrats


WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The Administration of the American president, Donald Trump, described as "a bad day for the Democrats" the first hearing of the Judicial Committee of the House of Representatives on the political trial against the president.

"It has been a good day for President Trump and a bad day for Democrats," said White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.

On December 4, four experts in constitutional law, three of them supporters of the Democrats and one of the Republicans, testified in the Judicial Committee of the House of Representatives chaired by Democrat Jerrold Nadler.
"The only thing the three liberal professors established in Nadler's hearings is their own political prejudice towards President Trump"Grisham emphasized.
The US lower house, controlled by the opposition Democratic Party, launched an investigation against Trump in September over the telephone conversation he had on July 25 with Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelenski.

An informant claimed that he had received complaints that Trump pressured Zelenski to investigate alleged acts of corruption of former Vice President Joe Biden, his possible rival in the 2020 presidential elections, and the links of his son Hunter Biden with the Ukrainian gas company Burisma Group

The truth is that Trump asked Zelenski to clarify the controversial dismissal of Ukrainian Attorney General Victor Shokin in March 2016. Shokin investigated the Burisma Group gas company and its connections with Hunter Biden for corruption.

Shokin himself said, in an interview with the portal, that Joe Biden, then Vice President of the United States, demanded that the Ukrainian president of the time, Petro Poroshenko, cease to threaten him with freezing the delivery of a loan.

Rudy Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer, reported through his Twitter account that the Biden were asserting their influence for years.
