Late former President George H.W. Bush’s former chief of staff and former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu (R-N.H.) warned the Democrats that their idea of impeaching President Donald Trump was a “serious mistake” during a Fox News interview on Monday.
While giving an interview on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Sununu cautioned the Democratic party against impeaching the president, saying that it would be a “serious mistake” to make after what was revealed in the second volume of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s bombshell report.
“I think the Democrats are going to make a serious, serious mistake because I think the court of opinion is going to move strongly in the president’s favor as people find out the legal malice that was in volume 2.”
“I think the more you read that, the more you understand that was Andrew Weismann doing unethical legal malfeasance once again,” added Sununu.

Andrew Weismann was a top lawyer on Mueller’s team who built the case against Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Weismann announced last month — prior to the conclusion of the Mueller report — that he would be accepting a teaching position at New York University.
Sununu went on to say that the Democrats would have “a difficult time dealing” with the investigation that Senate Judiciary Chairman Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) announced would look into the “[Hillary] Clinton side of the issue.”
He continued on to blast the Democrats further, saying that the “American public” would eventually see behind the curtain as to “how political they are.”
“The more and more they get into the weeds, the more and more the American public is going to understand how political they are rather than trying to get legislation passed.”
Sununu added that he believed Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) “mind [was] made up” on impeachment and there was “no way” the Democrats would get “traction” on the issue after Independence Day and the “summer doldrums.”
