Trump impeachment: Trump's 'single best piece of evidence' against Democrats REVEALED | World | News 47

The former Representative for South Carolina told Fox News President Donald Trump still holds the strongest card in his impeachment trial, which will begin on Tuesday in the US Senate at 1pm local time. Mr Gowdy argued the President’s “best piece of evidence” for his defence team to focus on during the trial, is the phone call transcript he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. He explained: “The transcript. The transcript is the single best piece of evidence that the President has. Who brought up Rudy Giuliani’s name? It wasn’t Donald Trump, it was Zelensky.

“This was the second call, not the first call.

“If President Trump really hell-bent on ensuring that the Ukrainians investigate the Bidens, would he not have brought that up in the first telephone call he had with Zelensky?

“Why wait till the second? Who brought up Bill Boar and under what circumstances was Bill Barr’s name brought up?

“I think the transcript is the single best piece of evidence that the President has.”

President Donald Trump and his Republican allies plan to launch a massive effort to limit damage to his chances of re-election as the Senate trial to determine whether to remove him from office gets under way in earnest next week.

After an internal White House debate over whether he should leave the country during the trial, Trump plans to travel to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, next week to play up the strength of the US economy, a major theme in his campaign for re-election in November.

The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives has charged Trump with abuse of office for pressuring Ukraine to investigate a political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, and obstructing Congress in its investigation into his conduct.

Trump has denied wrongdoing and has accused Democrats of a partisan-driven effort to undo his 2016 election victory.

The trial in the Republican-controlled Senate is unlikely to lead to Trump’s ouster, as no Republican senators have voiced support for doing so. But it provides Democrats an unprecedented opportunity on national television over a period of weeks to make the case to the American people that he is unfit for office and should not be re-elected.

Conscious of this, people around Trump have drawn up plans to present a different narrative of a president presiding over a strong economy who is an innocent victim of efforts by his political opponents to undermine his presidency.

An appearance at Davos could provide some powerful optics of a president intent on doing his job as tumult swirls around him.

Some advisers had argued against the trip, feeling Trump’s appearance was unnecessary, one source familiar with internal deliberations said.

“It allows him to be on the world stage making a major speech about the booming economy that he’s helped create with his policies, while the Democrats keep pushing this sham impeachment,” a White House official said.

The President was leaving himself some wiggle room on whether he would actually make the trip.

“I will probably be going to Davos,” he told reporters on Thursday.
