President Trump told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a letter Tuesday to “immediately cease this impeachment fantasy.”
The president’s six-page letter, sent on the eve of the House vote on two articles of impeachment, lodges his “strongest and most powerful protest” against impeachment, which he called a partisan “crusade” by Democrats.
“This impeachment represents an unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power by Democrat Lawmakers, unequaled in nearly two and a half centuries of American legislative history,” the president wrote.
Mr. Trump reiterated his position in a White House meeting with Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales, saying he conducted a “perfect call” with the Ukrainian president.
He said Republicans are united behind him because they realize it is all a “witch hunt.”

“The whole impeachment thing is a hoax,” he said. “We look forward to getting on to the Senate. We’re not entitled to lawyers. We’re not entitled to witnesses. We’re not entitled to anything in the House. It’s a total sham.”
In his letter, the president angrily rebuked Mrs. Pelosi for saying that she has been praying for Mr. Trump.
“You are offending Americans of faith by continually saying, ‘I pray for the president,’ when you know this statement is not true, unless it is meant in a negative sense,” Mr. Trump wrote. “It is a terrible thing you are doing, but you will have to live with it, not I!”
