In a press conference today at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, President Donald Trump was asked for his take on the Senate impeachment trial.
Trump then made a stunning admission:
“I thought our team did a very good job. But honestly, we have all the material. They don’t have the material.”

Trump was impeached last month by the U.S. House, and is now on trial in the U.S. Senate. One of the two impeachment articles asserts that the president has obstructed Congress by refusing to produce any subpoenaed documents, texts, or emails, and by ordering every official in the executive branch not to testify.
The House impeachment inquiry nonetheless produced much evidence that top administration officials have direct and complete knowledge of the president’s scheme to extort Ukraine into announcing an investigation of Joe Biden, the president’s possible Democrat opponent in the 2020 election.
