The deputy press secretary to President Donald Trump blasted the Democrats for their focus on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s bombshell report into Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election on Tuesday, telling them to “get over it.”
While speaking to Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday morning, White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley told the hosts of the show that Trump was not concerned about the talks of impeachment “at all.”
“I was standing right next to him yesterday at the Easter Egg Roll when a question was shouted out about impeachment, and he said he wasn’t worried at all. Not in the least. Because there is nothing to worry about when you’ve done nothing wrong.”

Gidley continued on to lambast the Democrats “vying to be at the top of the ticket” in their presidential primary for demanding the president be impeached “when there is no crime.”
“The president hasn’t done anything criminally wrong,” the deputy press secretary added. “And they’re still trying to attack this president.”
Gidley then torched the Democrats as “not want[ing] to get to the truth” and instead are “want[ing] to get to the president.”
“After two and a half years and all the subpoenas and the witnesses, we now know there is no collusion with a foreign power. We know there’s no obstruction.”
He continued on in his roast of the Democrats to torch House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) for “continu[ing] to try and attack” Trump and the people in his administration and that Nadler would not “learn anything else about” former White House counsel Don McGahn or the Trump administration that Mueller did not find in his investigation.
The president’s deputy press secretary went on to deliver a mean right hook to the Democrats, telling them to “get over” the Mueller report:
“The conclusion is: no collusion. And Democrats need to get over it, even though they want it to be true.
Gidley was then pressed on whether the president would release his tax returns to meet Tuesday’s deadline, to which he replied that Trump “was not inclined to do so at this time.”
As IJR News previously reported, the Internal Revenue Service and Treasury Department have until 5 p.m. on Tuesday to deliver Trump’s tax returns to Congress.
