President Donald Trump is not taking House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry well. To that end, late this past Wednesday night he got on Twitter to continue a train of thought from earlier in the day, when in his frenzy to bat down impeachment, he’d misrepresented poll numbers showing how many Americans support impeachment. At almost midnight eastern time, Trump asked why Democrats would even pursue impeachment against him, suggesting that he’s done nothing wrong — although we can all see the call record his own White House released in which he pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the Bidens.
Why is this even a question anymore? Trump and his cronies refuse to accept basic reality.
Earning plenty of mockery right away, Trump posted on Twitter:
‘Impeached for what, having created the greatest Economy in the history of our Country, building our strongest ever Military, Cutting Taxes too much?’
He may have meant his question to be rhetorical, but he got answers.
One Twitter user left a reply that as of early Thursday morning at least was at the top and read simply:
‘No it’s for the crimes.’
Soliciting a thing of value from a foreign government for help in a domestic political campaign is flatly illegal. Trump and his inner circles may like to claim that he simply has a newfound concern for corruption conspiracy theories involving Eastern European countries — but we’ve all watched his trajectory to get to this point. This is the same Donald Trump who stood before the world ahead of the 2016 election and proclaimed that Russia, if they were listening, should get to work finding emails lost at one point from Hillary Clinton’s much scrutinized email server.
On Twitter late Wednesday and early Thursday, many users left comments similar to the one above pointing out the glaring elephant in the room of evidence against the president warranting the impeachment inquiry into the president.
Trump’s side has demanded he get to set some of the terms of the probe, but since when did the target of a judicial investigation get to decide how that investigation proceeded?
