The White House Strikes Back

Democrats and their allies in the press have been saying President Trump simply has no defense against articles of impeachment. Hill Republicans made the case for the president, but the fact is, the White House had not produced any comprehensive defense in the nearly four months since impeachment began. Until now. In a 110-page memo, White House lawyers make the process arguments that have been widely discussed. But they also go deeply into the substance of the Trump-Ukraine matter — more deeply than Democrats ever predicted they would. In this solo podcast, Byron takes a look at the arguments Republicans will be making in the contentious days and weeks ahead.

    Here I was hoping for charges against Democratic Congressmen for leaking secrets.

    That’s quite a memo.

    How do you spell “Zelensky”? “Zelenskyy”?
