President Trump is firing the warning shots.
The Western Journal is reporting:
“In an interview with Reuters, President Donald Trump told the news organization “people would revolt” if he were to be impeached by House Democrats.
Representatives of the news organization met with the president Tuesday for an exclusive interview in the Oval Office.
When the subject of possible impeachment was discussed, Trump said he wasn’t too concerned about it.
“It’s hard to impeach somebody who hasn’t done anything wrong and who’s created the greatest economy in the history of our country,” Trump said.
“I’m not concerned, no. I think that the people would revolt if that happened,” he added.
Last week, federal prosecutors in New York alleged that Trump violated campaign finance law by directing his longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, to make hush money payments to two women during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Democrats claim this violation is an impeachable offense.
Trump, however, claims the payments weren’t campaign contributions.
“Number one, it wasn’t a campaign contribution,” he said. “If it were, it’s only civil, and even if it’s only civil, there was no violation based on what we did. OK?”
Trump told Reuters that he would be willing to work with members of Congress from both sides of the aisle. However, it would be tough if they were trying to pursue investigations against him.
“We’re going to go down one of two tracks,” he said. “We’re either going to start the campaign and they’re going to do presidential harassment, or we’re going to get tremendous amounts of legislation passed working together. There’s not a third track.”
In August, Axios conducted a poll on whether people wanted President Trump impeached.
The poll found among other things that:
More than four out of 10 Americans say they’re ready for impeachment.
Two subgroups — Millennials and African American women — strongly favor it.
Tom Steyer, a leftist billionaire hedge fund manager, spent $123 million on initiatives to get Democrats elected this year. He is one calling for the impeachment of President Trump. Steyer posted this to Twitter yesterday.
Democrats should do the right thing: impeach Mr. Trump. Don’t try to game out what happens. Do the right thing. Period.
