Donald Trump's wary White House deals with the threat of impeachment

Donald Trump\'s wary White House deals with the threat of impeachment

WASHINGTON – As the White House sought to convey a semblance of normalcy Thursday, President Donald Trump again attacked a new impeachment inquiry as "disgrace" and a "terrible thing for our country."

“It shouldn’t be allowed – there should be a way of stopping it – maybe legally through the courts," Trump told reporters as he returned to Washington after a week of activities with the United Nations in New York.

Trump and aides are in communications overdrive over the threat of impeachment, seeking to counter the newly released complaint from a still-unknown whistleblower as well as other claims that Trump improperly pressured Ukraine's president to investigate Democratic political rival Joe Biden.

Speaking after the House Intelligence Committee conducted a hearing on the whistleblower's allegations, Trump attacked the committee chairman, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., of "making up" stories about him.

“I just watched a little of the news on TV," Trump said. "It’s a disgrace.”

Schiff mocked the complaints, telling reporters: “I’m always flattered when I’m attacked by someone of the president’s character."

In statements and emails throughout the day, at the White House and within Trump's re-election campaign, aides argued that the complaint doesn't go much beyond what isn't already known.

They also continued to dispute the whistleblower's central contention that Trump improperly pressured the president of Ukraine to investigate Biden.

In the meantime, Trump and other administration officials sought to project an image of business as usual, from presidential fundraisers in New York to an immigration briefing at the White House.

“Nothing has changed with the release of this complaint, which is nothing more than a collection of third-hand accounts of events and cobbled-together press clippings – all of which show nothing improper," said White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham in a statement released less than a half-hour after release of the document.

Grisham and other aides also stressed that the whistleblower – still unidentified – acknowledged he did not witness most of the events described, relying instead on statements from other unidentified White House officials.

Aides also noted that Trump has already released a summary of a key phone call between him and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky
