In his first post on a morning critical to the fate of his presidency, Trump paraphrased remarks that conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh made Tuesday and that were rebroadcast during a segment on “Fox & Friends” early Wednesday.

“‘Millions of Americans will see what a partisan sham this whole thing is.’ Rush Limbaugh @foxandfriends,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

He knows that it isn’t enough to end this IMPEACHMENT SCAM.” Even before the public hearings began, Trump fundraisers reported seeing a surge in donations in response to impeachment talk.

US President Donald Trump has lashed out at congressional Democrats after they vowed to summons the White House to produce documents this week. Committees are demanding documents relating to the administration's dealings with Ukraine, which is now at the heart of an impeachment inquiry.

“Also, why is corrupt politician Schiff allowed to hand over cross examination to a high priced outside lawyer. Did that lawyer ever work for me, which would be a conflict?” he added.

The second line of Trump’s tweet, which invoked House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), appeared to refer to the congressman’s plans to yield significant questioning time during Wednesday’s impeachment testimony to his panel’s majority counsel.

It was not immediately clear whether two of the more well-known lawyers for the Intelligence Committee’s Democratic lawmakers, Daniel Goldman and Daniel Noble, ever took on Trump as a client in his capacity as a private businessman — though such a possibility seems unlikely.

Goldman, the Intelligence Committee’s director of investigations, served 10 years as a federal prosecutor with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. Noble, a senior counsel for the committee, also worked in the Southern District, specializing in cybercrime and organized crime prosecutions.

“The Democrats have stacked the deck against President Trump and the Republicans. They have leaked out everything,” Trump complained in another morning missive, mentioning the Twitter handles for “Fox & Friends” and one of the program’s co-hosts, Steve Doocy.

The president also issued a three-part screed summarizing an appearance on the show by Charles Hurt, a conservative political commentator and the opinion editor of The Washington Times, and later tweeted two of his favored refrains amid the impeachment battle.

“NEVER TRUMPERS!” he wrote, adding: “READ THE TRANSCRIPT!”

Beginning at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, lawmakers will hear testimony from George Kent, a deputy assistant secretary at the State Department whose portfolio includes Ukraine, and William Taylor, the top U.S. envoy to Ukraine.

Both administration officials were previously deposed before members of three congressional committees last month, and the transcripts of those closed-door sessions were released to the public last week.

Ivanka Trump Tweets Out Fake de Tocqueville Quote to Bash Impeachment as a ‘Decline of Public Morals’ .
“A decline of public morals in the United States will probably be marked by the abuse of the power of impeachment as a means of crushing political adversaries or ejecting them from office.” Those words, Ivanka Trump claimed, were spoken by Alexis de Tocqueville in 1835. In a Thursday evening tweet, the first daughter used the quotation to bash the impeachment hearings against her father, President Donald Trump.
