President Donald Trump has come out on Tuesday and delivered a response to the latest impeachment effort being put forth by Democrats in the House of Representatives, saying it’s the “continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics.”
However, the president did go on the record and state that he doesn’t want to see any more violence in the streets, especially after what happened last week at the U.S. Capitol building. The riots that exploded last Wednesday resulted in five deaths.
White House reporter for Real Clear Politics Philip Wegmann reported Tuesday morning: “‘We want no violence,’ Trump says on his walk to Marine One. His second impeachment though, is a ‘continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics,’ and in his estimation ‘is causing tremendous anger.’”

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin (WV) warned against the “ill advised” Democratic impeachment effort against the president, noting that there isn’t support for it in the Senate.
“I don’t see any of that, because there will be 48, still 48 Democrats, until we seat Warnock and Senator Ossoff,” Manchin said on Fox News airwaves Monday, The Daily Wire reported. “So, until that happens, you need 67 votes. I think, my arithmetic, that means we have 19 Republicans. I don’t see that. And I think the House should know that also. We have been trying to send that message over. They know the votes aren’t there. You would think that they would do that.”
“I think this is so ill-advised for Joe Biden to be coming in, trying to heal the country, trying to be the president of all the people, when we’re going to be so divided and fighting again. Let the judicial system do its job,” Manchin went on to say. “And then, we’re a country of the rule of law. That’s the bedrock of who we are. Let that take its place. Let the investigations go on. Let the evidence come forth, and then we will go forward from there. There’s no rush to do this impeachment now. We can do it later if they think it’s necessary.”
Democrats have been looking for an excuse to boot him from office through the use of impeachment ever since Trump was sworn into office. There’s a method to the madness. If he’s impeached and convicted, he’ll never be able to run for office again. And that would just tickle the Democratic Party pink.
If they move forward with an impeachment vote and it passes, President Trump will be the first commander-in-chief to ever be impeached twice.
There’s also been talk of using the 25th Amendment to declare Trump unfit for duty and thus removed from the Oval Office. Again, the left is desperate to get a little revenge.
It’s not enough their candidate won the election. They want each and every person associated with Trump to suffer. It’s quite twisted and sick.
