Trump Blasts Impeachment Move: ‘It’s Causing Tremendous Danger To Our Country’

President Trump criticized Democrat leaders seeking to impeach him for the second time, calling it a “continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics,” adding that their move is “causing tremendous danger” and “tremendous anger” to our country.

“On the impeachment, it’s really a continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics. It’s ridiculous. It’s absolutely ridiculous,” Trump told reporters Tuesday before departing to Alamo, Texas. “This impeachment is causing tremendous anger, and you’re doing it, and it’s really a terrible thing that they’re doing.”

“For Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to continue on this path, I think it’s causing tremendous danger to our country, and it’s causing tremendous anger,” Trump added. “I want no violence.”

House Democrats plan to vote on Tuesday night on a resolution demanding that Vice President Mike Pence invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. The floor vote occurred after Democrats on Monday failed to have the resolution introduced by Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) pass by unanimous consent. Rep. Alex Mooney (R-WV) objected to House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) request.

Democrats formally introduced their single impeachment article during the brief Pro-forma session Monday, charging Trump with “incitement of insurrection” they said caused the riots at the Capitol last week where six people died, including two U.S Capitol Police officers.

The articles introduced by Democrats Raskin, David Cicilline of Rhode Island, and Ted Lieu of California specifically cite Trump’s remarks during the “Save America” Rally before the Capitol breach for which Democrats said led to the riots in an attempt to stop Congress from certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win.

“In all this, President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government,” the article says. “He threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coequal branch of Government. He thereby betrayed his trust as President, to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.”

Trump defended his remarks, saying his speech at Wednesday’s rally “was totally appropriate” after a reporter asked, “What is your role in what happened at the Capitol? What is your personal responsibility?” 

“So, if you read my speech and many people have done it and I’ve seen it, both in the papers and in the media on television. It’s been analyzed, and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate,” Trump responded, speaking to reporters again before boarding Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews.

“And if you look at what other people have said, politicians at a high level, about the riots during the summer, the horrible riots in Portland and Seattle and various other places, that was a real problem, what they said. But they’ve analyzed my speech and my words and my final paragraph, my final sentence. And everybody, to the tee, though it was totally appropriate,” he added.

The president attacked “Big Tech” for being “dividing and divisive,” saying he believes the ban on his social media platforms is “going to be a catastrophic mistake for them.”

“I think that Big Tech is doing a horrible thing for our country and to our country,” Trump said. “And I believe it’s going to be a catastrophic mistake for them. They’re dividing and divisive, and they’re showing something that I’ve been predicting for a long time. I’ve been predicting it for a long time, and people didn’t act on it. But I think Big Tech has made a terrible mistake, and very very bad for our country.”

The Democratic-controlled House is poised to vote Wednesday to impeach Trump a second time, just a week before he leaves office. However, the Senate is currently out of session until Jan. 19, meaning that an impeachment trial would likely occur after Trump has left the White House and Biden has been sworn in. No GOP senators have indicated that they will vote on the second impeachment article.

    To Russell Remmert and ftworthwinters. Time is a gentleman, as we say over here, and January 6 proved once and for all how DESPERATE you are defending that horrible, miserable ex-president (thank goodness!) who has now 5 deaths plus to account for in addition to the thousands caused by his ghastly, mindless virus policy.
    He needs to be prosecuted and LOCKED UP for urging and abetting that vile coup attempt, doing nothing but sneering while Capitol Hill was assaulted and devastated.
    You lying Rep/cons/fascist/racists/suprematists/boogapoos are finally exposed for what you are: the TRUE subverters of democracy and the ones who seek division in the country. Like toddlers in diapers, you cannot take reality for what it is and scream and whine on and on about what it should be -according to your insane views, that is.

    You have the nerve to cry for ‘freedom of expression’ while actively censoring and demonising and suppressing anyone else who doesn’t buy into your crock of lies and fake reality -and tells it in your face.

    You LOST along with your dirty Diaper Donald. The stench of it was noticed the world over.

    President Trump said that this latest Impeachment crap will “causing tremendous danger” and “tremendous anger” to our country” That is exactly why the Democrats/Leftists/Liberals/Socialists are doing it, they want to cause even more division within the country. When things get out of hand they will declare Marshal Law and then they can really lock down the country and the American People will no longer have any say what so ever and the Socialist will take over the entire country.

Being a reporter seems a ticket out to the world.
