The president was asked about not participating in Monday's impeachment hearing.
Trump responded as he has in the past — but said that “nothing came out of the conversation,” which your pooler does not believe he has said before.
“The impeachment thing is a total hoax. The numbers have totally swung our way. They don’t want to see impeachment. Especially in the swing states, they’ve swung our way. I’ve never seen a swing like this. Because people realize it’s a total hoax. We had a perfect conversation. It was only a conversation. Nothing came out of the conversation, except for the relationship with Ukraine. And the people see that it’s just a continuation of this three-year witch. And I’m looking forward to seeing the IG report. I hear they’re announcing it on Monday. And I look forward very much to seeing what happens with the Durham report, maybe even more importantly. Because it’s a horrible thing that took place, and it should never happen to another president.”
