Sarah Sanders, the former White House press secretary, believes the impeachment inquiry is a “huge waste of time and a circus that has been put on by House Democrats.” Sanders called it an embarrassment to the Party, and unfair for the president, and believes he will be “fully vindicated’ if the impeachment trial is held in the Senate.

“Nancy Pelosi is making a big mistake,” she said, adding, “and it will backfire.”
“We will move forward, and the president will continue doing what he has done throughout the entire process,” she said. “Democrats have wasted all of their time, and all of America’s time on this ridiculous impeachment sham,” said Sanders.

The president is continuing to focus on the job he was elected by the people to do, and with the economy booming, the November job report showed 266,000 new jobs, matching a 50-year unemployment low at 3.5 percent. “No one can deny that under this president, the country is doing spectacular, particularly the economy,” said Sanders.

On Thursday, Dec. 5, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for articles of impeachment, after four law professors—three of them chosen by House Democrats—presented their argument for impeachment on Wednesday.

Three legal scholars all agreed that the president should be impeached. The fourth lawyer, law professor Jonathan Turley, although not a Trump supporter, argued the case against impeachment, “What we leave in the wake of this scandal will shape our democracy for generations to come. These ‘agitated passions’ will not be a substitute for proof in an impeachment. We currently have too much of the former and too little of the latter,” said Turley, who was subjected to threats during his testimony.

“My call for greater civility and dialogue may have been the least successful argument I made to the committee. Before I finished my testimony, my home and office were inundated with threatening messages and demands that I be fired from George Washington University for arguing that, while a case for impeachment can be made, it has not been made on this record,” Turley wrote in an op-ed for The Hill on Thursday.
