White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Tuesday that President Donald Trump "expects to be fully exonerated" in the Senate after the House announced two articles of impeachment regarding Ukraine in a probe with a "pre-determined outcome."
"The Democrats' use of a phone call with the president of Ukraine, with a transcript the president himself released, served as their excuse for this partisan, gratuitous, and pathetic attempt to overthrow the Trump administration and the results of the 2016 election," Grisham said in a statement.
She ripped the impeachment articles, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, as "baseless" and said they hurt the American people, "who expect their elected officials to work on their behalf to strengthen our nation."
Grisham said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other Democrats had forced "unfounded accusations down the throats of the American people.
"The president will address these false charges in the Senate and expects to be fully exonerated," she said, "because he did nothing wrong."
