More of Trump’s totally sane interview with Fox and Friends in which he predicts “the biggest scandal in the history of our country” and other than directing Bill Barr to investigate, he will not get involved, even though he could if he wanted. pic.twitter.com/m7GSEJkB17

One day after the wrap of the first phase of public impeachment hearings, President Donald Trump unloaded to Fox News, declaring he wants a Senate trial, pushing a debunked theory that Ukraine has a DNC server, and deeming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “crazy as a bedbug.”
The expansive remarks by the president came during a roughly hour-long phone call to “Fox & Friends,” in an exercise co-host Brian Kilmeade dubbed “a stress release.”
“Frankly, I want a trial,” Trump said, while asserting that no evidence existed to warrant his removal from office and insisting there should “never be an impeachment.”
But if House lawmakers do send articles of impeachment to the Senate, Trump said he would like to see testimony by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the leader of the Democratic inquiry.
“Well, there’s only one person I want more than ‘Where’s Hunter,’” Trump said, referring to former Vice President Joe Biden’s son.
“The one I want to testify most is ‘Shifty Schiff,’ and I want to find out why did he make up my statement?” Trump said. “He made up my statement, and I want to find that out. Why did ‘Shifty Schiff’ — who’s a crooked politician, he’s a corrupt politician — why did he make up my statement?”
Trump aslo sahred why he thought ambassador Marie Yovanovitch was a bad person.
Trump on Yovanovitch: “She wouldn’t hang my picture in the embassy. She is in charge of the embassy. She wouldn’t hang it. It look a year-and-a-half, two years to get the picture up. She said bad things about me … This was not an angel this woman, okay?” pic.twitter.com/mayhFy8jSG

Trump’s almost hour-long rant was wild and hard to follow, and parts of it were even too much for his favorite hosts to follow.
When even Steve Doocy is trying to get you to stop spewing conspiracies
TRUMP: They have the server from the DNC
KILMEADE: Who has the server?
TRUMP: They gave the server to Crowdstrike, which is a company owned by a very wealthy Ukrainian.
DOOCY: Are you SURE they did that? pic.twitter.com/sTWJehRWYG

For the record Crowdstrike is not a Ukranian company, and it certainly does not have the DNC server.
Keep in mind folks that this is who at least 34% of the country wants to see remain in the White House.
Update: I knew this was probably a lie.
