While Donald Trump is out of the country, House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff gave his opening argument at the president’s Senate impeachment trial.
“When a man unprincipled in private life desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper, possessed of considerable talents, having the advantage of military habits—despotic in his ordinary demeanor—known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty—when such a man is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity—to join in the cry of danger to liberty—to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government & bringing it under suspicion—to flatter and fall in with all the non sense of the zealots of the day—It may justly be suspected that his object is to throw things into confusion that he may ‘ride the storm and direct the whirlwind,’” Schiff said while reading from his prepared remarks.
It didn’t take long for Trump to take to Twitter to try and state his case. Trump tweeted in all-caps: “NO PRESSURE.”

I thought he was complaining about showers again. 😉

No worries. As POTUS you can probably find the old kind of toilet – more pressure less flushes.

The law doesn't say it is only illegal to request election interference if you pressure the other country. The law simply says it is illegal to request election assistance. You did that.

Instead of screaming all day on the twitter machine, it might be more effective if you march on down to the Senate and demand that they let you testify under oath. Bring your staff with you and order them to testify under oath too.
After all, what have you got to hide?
