President Donald Trump said Friday that his impeachment should be invalidated, and he gave an ominous warning when asked how he’ll pay back those responsible, saying, “You’ll see.”
“Should they expunge the impeachment in the House? They should because it was a hoax,” Trump told reporters at the White House before departing on Marine One.
When asked about his press secretary’s comments that the president was suggesting in his remarks Thursday on impeachment that his Democratic political opponents “should be held accountable,” Trump said, “Well, you’ll see. I mean, we’ll see what happens.”
Even the Liberal Alan Dershowitz says Trump wasn’t really impeached anyway:
President Trump’s impeachment lawyer Alan Dershowitz argued the president should not have the stain of impeachment on his legacy if the Senate acquits him.
“Nancy Pelosi has now pulled a real sharp one. She says even if he’s acquitted and vindicated, he’s still impeached. He’s going to have that label forever. That should not be how it is. Why? He didn’t have a fair trial,” Dershowitz, 81, told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Friday.
“He was indicted. And what happens after a person is acquitted after indictment? The indictment disappears,” he continued. “If he wins this, I think nobody should regard him as having been impeached.”
This is from the right wing rag The Washington Examiner, but I’m going to assume that the writer slipped in that detail about Dershowitz’s age to imply the possibility that Dershowitz’s claims are the product of dementia.
Things are going to get a lot worse than they’ve been very quickly.
Of the seven candidates debating tonight, Warren seems to me to be the only one who even comes close to grasping that.
ETA: Sondland fired. He lied for Trump, but not enough to save his miserable skin.
