  Trump campaign manager calls impeachment inquiry a 'seditious conspiracy' President Trump's 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale on Monday called the impeachment inquiry from House Democrats a "seditious conspiracy" to overthrow the president. "Nancy Pelosi should step down for betraying her oath of office and attempting to overthrow our great Republic," Parscale said, referring to the Speaker and California Democrat.

WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Tuesday that the House would initiate a formal impeachment inquiry against President Trump , charging him with betraying his oath of office and the nation’s security by seeking to enlist a foreign power to tarnish a rival for his own political gain.

The four-page document divides the narrative into three categories: the "shakedown," "the pressure campaign" and "the cover up."

The document first cites the rough transcript released by the White House last month of the July 25 call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. In that call, Trump told Zelensky that he would have his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and Attorney General William Barr reach out to "get to the bottom" of "a lot of talk" about the business dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden.

The fact sheet then cites text messages that former Ukraine envoy Kurt Volker provided to the House committees leading the impeachment inquiry that show discussion between diplomats about the Trump administration's efforts to push for the investigation as evidence of a "pressure campaign."

He mentioned Trump multiple times during his Sunday speech but steered clear of any remarks about the president's calls for an investigation into his son Hunter's ties to the Ukraine. 'In full view of the American people, he has violated his oath of office and betrayed our nation. He must be impeached.'

FACT CHECK: Trump 's Oval Office Pitch For A Border Wall. Trump has frequently pointed to sympathetic crime victims to justify his crackdown on illegal immigration. Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi condemned the president's proposed border wall as costly, ineffective and immoral.

In one of those exchanges, William Taylor, the chargé d'affaires for Ukraine, said "I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign."

Taylor is slated to appear for testimony before the House committees on Tuesday.

The document from Pelosi then concludes that the intelligence community whistleblower complaint that sparked the impeachment inquiry details evidence of a "cover up" by White House officials to "lock down" records of the July 25 call between Trump and Zelensky by transferring the transcript to a separate electronic system used to handle particularly sensitive classified information.

Pelosi initially balked for months at an impeachment inquiry in the House, but formally announced the investigation following the whistleblower complaint about Trump's dealings with Zelensky and the White House's release of the partial transcript of the call.

Voters Care About Whether Trump Committed A Crime; Not Whether The Process Is Fair .
Republicans should focus on defending Trump's actions rather than talking about a "rigged" processThe number of ways in which Democrats have abused the rules of the House of Representatives, the jurisdiction of committees, the importance of precedent, and virtually every other aspect of their so-called “impeachment inquiry” is clear beyond any reasoned dispute.
