WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Monday railed against the latest call from Democrat Rep. Al Green to impeach him.
“’Democrat Texas Congressman Al Green says impeachment is the only thing that can prevent President Trump from re-election in 2020,'” Trump tweeted Monday morning.
“In other words, Dems can’t win the election fairly. You can’t impeach a president for creating the best economy in our country’s history. Also, there are “’No High Crimes & Misdemeanors,'” the president continued. “No Collusion, No Conspiracy, No Obstruction. ALL THE CRIMES ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE, and that’s what the Dems should be looking at, but they won’t. Nevertheless, the tables are turning!”
Green (D- Tx), has repeatedly called on the president to be impeached on grounds of corruption.
“He will say the Democrats had an overwhelming majority in the House and they didn’t take up impeachment,” Green said during an interview with MSNBC over the weekend. “He will say that we had a constitutional duty to do it if it was there, and we didn’t. He will say he’s been vindicated.”
Democrats are still reeling from a report released by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office weeks ago clearing the president from accusations that he colluded with Russian officials to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Despite Mueller’s report, many Democrats have continued to accuse the president of wrongdoing.
Republican lawmaker Lindsey Graham warned Democrats last November that attempting to impeach President Trump would only backfire.
“If they want to impeach President Trump, I’d give them some advice,” Graham told Fox News at the time. “Been there, done that with Clinton, didn’t work out for us. I would think twice about it. It will blow up in their face.”
