Washington (CNN)It was on White House letterhead. It read like a string of President Donald Trump’s tweets.
And it was just as dishonest.
On Tuesday afternoon, Trump released a six-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in which — employing his distinctive vocabulary and punctuation — he blasted Democrats’ push to impeach him, defended his dealings with Ukraine and touted his accomplishments in office.
Like much of his previous rhetoric about Ukraine and impeachment, much of the letter was false or misleading.
Trump repeated multiple false claims that have been debunked on numerous occasions. He also delivered some new claims that were false, misleading or lacking in context.
We’re not finished going through all of Trump’s claims in his letter, but here are some early fact checks.
