White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Friday that the White House is “prepared” for Trump to be impeached by the House of Representatives. “We are prepared for an impeachment to happen,” Grisham said in an interview on Fox News. “Nancy Pelosi has made it very, very clear that the House Democrats are going to vote.”
When pressed, Grisham pushed back on the notion that she believed impeachment to be a foregone conclusion but said the White House was “expecting” it.
Grisham also reiterated that Trump believes the impeachment inquiry to be a “sham,” pointing to criticisms he has voiced on his Twitter feed. “I wouldn’t say it is a foregone conclusion, I would say it’s what we’re expecting it, yes,” Grisham said.
