You knew it wouldn’t take long for President Trump to sound off on Twitter about the impeachment inquiry.
He wrote, “Such an important day at the United Nations, so much work and so much success, and the Democrats purposely had to ruin and demean it with more breaking news Witch Hunt garbage. So bad for our Country!” A follow-up tweet send simply, “Presidential harassment!”
Joe Biden, who’s at the center of the Ukraine flap, tweeted, “Pressuring the leader of another nation to investigate a political opponent — to help win an election — is not the conduct of an American President.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “Washington Democrats have been searching for ways to reverse their 2016 election defeat since before President Trump was even inaugurated. The result has been a two-and-a-half-year impeachment parade in search of a rationale.”
Trump’s 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton told People magazine, “This latest behavior around Ukraine, trying to enlist the president of Ukraine in a plot to undermine former Vice President Biden or lose the military aid he needs to defend against Trump’s friend, Vladimir Putin — if that’s not an impeachable offense, I don’t know what is.”
Former FBI head James Comey is against impeachment, but not because he believes Trump is innocent. He said in a radio interview that American voters would be “let off the hook… We need to take responsibility for this and vote next November, and show we have a certain set of values and we insist that our leaders reflect those values.”
