President Donald Trump reiterated once again during a rally in Louisiana that he did nothing wrong referring to the impeachment inquiry that seeks to remove him from office.
At a rally held Thursday, Nov. 14, in Bossier City to mark Saturday’s Louisiana state gubernatorial election, President Trump took the opportunity to point out that the first two witnesses called at the impeachment hearing are anti-Trump, or as he called them “never Trumpers.”
“The absolutely crazed lunatics, the Democrats, radical left, and their media partners standing right back there (…) are pushing the deranged impeachment witch hunt for doing nothing wrong,” the president said.
The president was referring to the Nov. 13 testimonies of George Kent, deputy assistant secretary for European and Eurasian affairs, and William Taylor, acting ambassador to Ukraine, who stated that they were not present during President Trump‘s call to Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelenskiy on July 25 on which the impeachment is based.
Taylor admitted that his knowledge was reduced to the story told to him by a member of his team the day after the call took place.

In addition, both admitted that neither knew of any quid pro quo, according to Fox News.
Saavedra noted how Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko also said Thursday that U.S. Ambassador Gordon Sondland did not associate military financial assistance with a request for Ukraine to open an investigation into former vice president and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
“Ambassador Sondland did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about a connection between the assistance and the investigations,” Prystaiko said, according to Reuters. “You should ask him,” he said.
So as President Trump has said before, this is all part of a plan the Democrats worked out even before he won the 2016 presidential election to discredit him.
“First it was the Russia hoax, then it was the Mueller witch hunt,” said Donald Trump, referring to the report by former special adviser Robert Mueller who failed to prove any of the suspicions of collusion with Russia in the 2016 elections.
“We’ve been going through this from before the election took place. A bunch of bad people, and then, one of the single greatest lies ever told by anybody in this government,” the president continued.
The president again reiterated that Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, should be “prosecuted” for having read a false version of the transcript of the president’s call to his Ukrainian counterpart, according to Fox News.
President Trump also noted that Democrats are delaying a vote on the UMSCA trade agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada.
