Trump claims Democrats have to change guidelines since they don't have enough facts to impeach

Donald Trump again decried the impeachment inquiry, claiming Democrats were changing the rules just hours before Monday's hearing to proceed with the investigation in the absence of facts.

'Less than 48 hours before start of the Impeachment Hearing Hoax, on Monday, the No Due Process, Do Nothing Democrats are, believe it or not, changing the Impeachment Guidelines because the facts are not on their side,' Trump posted to Twitter Sunday morning.

'When you can't win the game, change the rules!' the president added.

It appears the president it referencing the House Judiciary Committee report released Saturday that outlines the constitutional grounds for impeachment.

Donald Trump claimed Sunday that Democrats have to change the guidelines for impeachment, insisting they don't have enough facts to move forward with the proceedings without shaking up the rules

It appears Trump is referencing the Judiciary Committee report, released by Chairman Jerry Nadler on Saturday, which addresses the president's efforts to prohibit people from complying with congressional subpoenas

The report came after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi directed committee chairmen to begin drafting articles of impeachment against the president.

The committee will hear evidence against Trump in a hearing Monday after hosting a hearing with four law professors and constitutional experts last week – three called by Democrats and one called by Republicans, which was the first Republican witness approved in the impeachment proceedings.

Trump also quoted Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who told NBC News Sunday morning that Democrats have 'no evidence' that the president committed any impeachable offenses.

'Any president has the authority to investigate corruption. The President himself released the transcript of the call. Now the Democrats have no evidence of a crime and no evidence of violating the law. This is a kangaroo court in the House, but it's going to go to the Senate, it's going to go nowhere. They are going to impeach not because they have the evidence, but because they hate the president. I think the American people know that this is a waste of time, this is Democrats putting on a circus. @SenTedCruz interviewed by Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd' Trump posted to his Twitter.

The president also quoted Marco Rubio, who claimed in an interview Sunday that Democrats are conducting a 'kangaroo court' because they have 'no evidence' Trump committed an impeachable offense

The Judiciary report released this weekend essentially updates impeachment guidelines, which explains when and how a president can be impeached and removed from office.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler addresses in the report points of criticism coming from the president and White House regarding impeachment efforts, but did not alter any other guidelines.

Trump claims Democrats changed the rules to fit their needs in the impeachment case.

The amended rules address Trump's efforts to prohibit administration officials and others from complying with congressional subpoenas.
