Trump puts election-year politics at center of impeachment case

President Trump is leaning into a defense strategy marked by 2020 politics as he seeks to beat back a growing push by Democrats on impeachment.

The president has grasped at a number of political arguments to dismiss the legitimacy of the impeachment inquiry, attacking the lawmakers leading the effort, decrying the process as a “coup” and accusing the anonymous whistleblower that helped spark the investigation of working with partisan aims.

“This is a con being perpetrated on the United States public,” Trump told reporters in the Roosevelt Room Wednesday afternoon.

The letter sent by White House on Tuesday to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) amplifies many of Trump’s own messages to counter the impeachment narrative, accusing Democrats of an “illegitimate” and “partisan” effort to overturn the results of the 2016 presidential election by investigating his contacts with Ukraine.
