The White House is prepared for President Donald Trump's impeachment, but it still hopes "everybody will come to their senses and realize the president did nothing wrong," press secretary Stephanie Grisham confirmed Friday.
House Speaker "Nancy Pelosi has made it very clear the House Democrats are going to vote" for impeachment, Grisham told Fox News' "America's Newsroom."
"Starting from the beginning, with all of their closed-door meetings and the way they have had their selective leaks with witnesses it has been set up to make, to impeach the president. It is something we're expecting."
Grisham said she does not know if Trump "has worded" the same expectations, but that she'd say "we're preparing in the White House."
"When you see Nancy Pelosi and [House Intelligence Committee Chairman) Adam Schiff and all the other Dems, and what they've been saying, they've made their intentions clear," said Grisham. "It is pretty obvious to watch them what they're doing and what we should expect."
Meanwhile, Trump said he's interested in reading the White House's transcript of his call with Ukraine's president as a fireside chat, but Grisham said she doesn't know what the logistics would be — but she believes it could "absolutely" happen.
"He has nothing to hide," said Grisham. "I think that's the point that's not getting across. The president did nothing wrong and has nothing to hide. So why wouldn't he read the transcript of a call that was fine?"
She also noted that there is at this time no need for a war room, and dismissed comparisons between Trump and former Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.
"Those two did something wrong," she said. "The president has done nothing wrong. At this time he feels confident with the people he has in place. We don't feel the need for a war room and we'll see what happens."
