Fox News host Jesse Watters says President Trump’s legal team decimated the Democrats’ bogus impeachment case by refuting the facts and dismantling their flimsy “quid pro quo” claim.
“The President won today,” Watters said. “After a week of hearing from Adam Schiff, Trump’s team finally was allowed to talk today. And in two hours, they demolished the Democrats’ case.”
Watters said Trump’s lawyers annihilated the impeachment claims so effortlessly that even CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin conceded that ‘the Republicans are winning here. The President is winning here.”
President Trump reacted by tweeting: “All Democrats should watch this!”

“Even the mainstream media admitted they put on a great defense. It was like the media had never heard all the facts before. They hadn’t.
Because Adam Schiff and the Democrats set all this up in secret and denied Trump’s lawyers — for five months — the right to make their case. And they hid a lot of the evidence from the Senate. Even I heard new information today.
Read the transcript. There was no talk about delaying aid on the call. Trump asked Ukraine’s president to ‘do us a favor’ — the American people. That was, to investigate election interference and to investigate corruption.
The president of Ukraine and his people said the call was a good call and he felt no pressure. The Ukraine president and his people never even knew the aid was delayed until the U.S. media reported it.”
There can’t be a quid pro quo without the “quo,” as Trump’s lawyers pointed out.
Bogus — Ukrainian foreign minister shreds whistleblower claims. Ukraine foreign minister denied @POTUS pressured Ukrainian President to investigate Biden’s abuse of power as VP. He said Leaders have Right to discuss problems that exist!

Watters noted: “We also found out that Trump had delayed aid to a bunch of countries — nothing illegal about that [because it happens all the time with all presidents]. Trump delayed aid to Afghanistan because of corruption, delayed aid to South Korea because of [military] basing cost issues, delayed aid to Central American countries because they weren’t helping to stop illegal immigration, and delayed aid to Pakistan because of terrorism.”
Jesse said the Democrats rushed through their half-baked impeachment because “they only cared about getting Trump impeached by Christmas.”
The Democrats’ entire case for “abuse of power” hinged on third-hand hearsay from an anonymous, left-wing whistleblower and the speculation of its “key witness,” Ambassador Gordon Sondland.
“Sondland said he assumed Trump had a quid pro quo going on,” Watters remarked. “Sondland said he was guessing that Trump was linking aid to investigations. He admitted that he had no evidence for it. And he’s the Democrats’ star witness! And when Sondland spoke to the President, Trump said there was no quid pro quo.”
Watters observed: “It’s over! Their whole case is based on someone’s speculation. The Democrats have no witness who provides any evidence of a quid pro quo. They never did because it never happened.”
Watters then shredded impeachment manager Adam Schiff, who has a well-documented history of lying.
“Why are we supposed to believe anything Adam Schiff says, anyway?” Watters asked. “He lied about Russian collusion for three years. He fabricated Trump’s phone call on live television, and he lied about his relationship with the ‘whistleblower.’ He has no credibility.”
Watters then pointed out that the TV ratings for the sham impeachment have cratered since Day One. Why? Because the public is bored and unconvinced by the partisan spectacle.
“Now, more Americans are against impeachment than they are for it,” Watters said. “The more they listened to the Democrats, the more they disagreed [with them]. Look at the ratings. They’re getting smoked [by soap operas]!”
Watters continued: “Look at the ratings for impeachment compared to other big political events: Kavanaugh, Comey, Michael Cohen. All that stuff crushed Adam Schiff. Crushed him! When is this going to end? Next week, hopefully, after the White House closes hard, probably lays into [the Biden boys], and the Senate votes to acquit.”
Because whether Democrats want to admit it or not, President Trump is still their president — and he’ll likely coast to an easy reelection. Deal with it.
