Trump Says He Fears Impeachment
Can he be indicted? Is impeachment a moral duty? Best to think these through.
The president lit up the news Tuesday during an Oval Office interview with Reuters. Asked whether he’s concerned about the prospect of impeachment, given that his former attorney, Michael Cohen, was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison for bribery, fraud and other crimes, he said no. No, not worried. Not worried at all! But if Democrats do impeach him, Donald Trump said, “the people would revolt.”
“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. I’m not concerned, no. I think that the people would revolt if that happened.”
That got a lot of people’s attention, because it spoke to a threat we all face from right-wing violence in this country (more accurately called fascism, but I digress). Right on cue, some of Trump’s ghouls got on social media to warn “the libs” that if they’re scared now, before Trump’s theoretical demise, they ain’t seen nothing yet.
