White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham accused Democrats of waiting to send articles of impeachment to the Senate in order to help certain Democratic candidates for president, according to an interview she did with Fox Business.
Grisham, who wasn’t specific in her allegation, said it was something she’s been “wondering about.”
“Sometimes I wonder if all of the timing was to help one of their candidates in the race who gets to be out there working in Iowa,” Grisham said to Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, “and others are working here in DC, so I’ve been wondering about that.”
Grisham went on to defend her boss, President Trump, saying that his critics were just going to “yell words.”
“Russia, Mueller, racism, they’ve used all these words and none of them is sticking because he doesn’t do any of those things, now we’ve got impeachment. So they’re going to continue to yell those words, and it’s only going to make him stronger,” she said.
The press secretary, who hasn’t given a single briefing since assuming her role, also discussed the US-China trade deal and how it “feels to be part of that history.”
Grisham said she continues to be “so proud of this President.”
“It has been very obvious that the more he wins, and the more he does for this country, the more the Democrats are actually working against him which is sad. It’s very sad,” she claimed.
