Trump: Dems Timed My Trial To Cheat Bernie Sanders

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Friday accused Democrats of deliberately diminishing Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) chances of winning the party’s presidential nomination by keeping him off the campaign trail to serve as a juror in the Senate impeachment trial.

The president in a pair of tweets sought to exploit potential frustration among Democrats by echoing a theory among some lawmakers that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was aiding the 2020 candidacy of former Vice President Joe Biden by timing impeachment votes to keep Sanders and other candidates in Washington as the Iowa caucuses approach.
