White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham tore into the impeachment report released by House Democrats on the Intelligence Committee.

The report, released on Tuesday, accuses President Trump of withholding almost $400 million in military aid to Ukraine in exchange for politically expedient investigations, including into rival Joe Biden.

Grisham, 43, ripped Rep. Adam Schiff, who is the chairman of the committee, in a statement released shortly after the report was made public.

“At the end of a one-sided sham process, Chairman Schiff and the Democrats utterly failed to produce any evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump,” Grisham said. “This report reflects nothing more than their frustrations."

“Chairman Schiff’s report reads like the ramblings of a basement blogger straining to prove something when there is evidence of nothing,” she added.

Republicans released their own report on Monday that argued the president did nothing wrong by withholding military assistance. They also argued that Trump did not attempt to obstruct House impeachment proceedings, a claim that House Democrats have made.
