Trump Says He’s ‘Not Even a Little Bit’ Worried About Impeachment

In the aftermath of the Mueller report, more Congressional Democrats are calling for impeachment, including a new wave of lawmakers that were not previously onboard with the idea before the report’s release.

But when asked by reporters Monday if he was worried about impeachment, President Donald Trump replied: “Not even a little bit.”

Watch the video below:

However, the president had impeachment on his mind Monday morning and laid out the case on Twitter of why he thinks he can’t be impeached.

“Only high crimes and misdemeanors can lead to impeachment,” he wrote. “There were no crimes by me (No Collusion, No Obstruction), so you can’t impeach.”

Trump’s notion that Democrats can’t impeach him is untrue. Impeachment is a political move, not a legal one, and is dependent on the votes of the House of Representatives.

Plenty of Democratic Congress members have indicated that the report lays out impeachable offenses.

Notably, 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called on her colleagues to take action.

“Mueller put the next step in the hands of Congress: ‘Congress has authority to prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice,'” she tweeted Friday.

“The correct process for exercising that authority is impeachment.”

In the House of Representatives, there is already a resolution to begin impeachment proceeding from Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.). Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) announced over the weekend she would sign onto the resolution.

“The report squarely puts [impeachmnet] on our doorstep,” she wrote.

Not all Democrats are on board, however. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is still stark in her opinion that impeachment proceedings won’t be worth the trouble, and Democrats should focus on getting Trump out of office by means of the 2020 election.

The speed with which the Leftists operate, Trump will have completed his second term before the House finalizes it’s impeachment proceedings. Maybe in the meantime they’ll manufacture something to impeach him for. Right now, they got zilch, nada, zip, nyet, nein, nothing.

How many pages of the Mueller report have you read? There are 10 attempts to obstruct the investigation. I know how much you want to see Obama/Hillary “locked up.” So I ask you to read the Volume II section with the evidence presented by Trump loyalist & imagine what your reaction would be if it was Obama or Clinton
