Stephanie Grisham: WH Expects Impeachment, but “It’s a Kangaroo Court.”
The White House has thrown up a number of different arguments as to why Donald Trump shouldn’t be impeached for his phone call with Volodmyr Zelensky. The idea that Republicans may not be able to keep the President from being impeached, however, seems to be sinking in.
Stephanie Grisham, who took over as White House press secretary in June, basically admitted recently that impeachment was a foregone conclusion. She seemed to temper that eventually, though, by saying that would be the result of a “kangaroo court.”
Since taking over for Sarah Huckabee Sanders earlier this year, Grishman has yet to hold a press conference. She spoke about Trump’s impeachment prospects, though, with Fox News’ host Bill Hemmer.
“Nancy Pelosi has made it very very clear the House Democrats are going to vote,” she said. “Starting from the beginning with all of their closed-door meetings and the way they have had their selective leaks with witnesses this has been set up to impeach the president. It is something we’re expecting.”
Hemmer then noted, “Listening to your answers there, it seems as if you have concluded it is a foregone conclusion as well.”
The press secretary responded, “I wouldn’t say it’s a foregone conclusion, but we’re expecting it, yes. This is a sham and a kangaroo court. This is unjust and unfair.”
When considering how Trump felt about the situation, Grisham said, “you just have to look at his Twitter feed.”
The latest impeachment related tweet from the President read,”The Whistleblower must come forward to explain why his account of the phone call with the Ukrainian President was so inaccurate (fraudulent?). Why did the Whistleblower deal with corrupt politician Shifty Adam Schiff and/or his committee?”
