Trump Rants in the Oval Office: ‘They’ve Been Trying to Impeach Me Since the Day I Got Elected’

President Donald Trump moved his ranting from Twitter to the Oval Office on Wednesday during an appearance in which he declared that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) should be investigated for treason and that Democrats have wanted to impeach him since he was elected.

Sitting in the Oval Trump steamed Trump said, “They’ve been trying to impeach me from the day I got elected. I’ve been going through this for three years. They’ve been trying to impeach me from the day I got elected and you know what? They failed.”

He continued, “This is the easiest one of all because this one is based on one conversation. What about Obama’s conversation with the President of Russia where he says ‘Hey, hey, tell Vlad I’ll talk to him after the election’s over.’ Nobody reports that, right? That’s stuff you should report.”

Here’s a clip of the video:

Trump’s stab at Obama was a nod to a 2012 incident in which Obama was caught on a hot mic telling Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would have “more flexibility” after the election.

Of course, if Trump had bothered to even Google that incident, he would have seen that every single paper reported on it and the Obama White House was forced to issue a statement on the former president’s conversation with Medvedev. Obama was answering questions about it for about a week.

Trump’s assertion that “this one is based on one conversation” is a also bit far-flung, as reporting of more of his conversations with foreign leaders, including the Australian prime minister, have come under scrutiny and could be named in articles of impeachment.

President Trump’s remarks in person and online have grown more incendiary as he’s come under a cloud of impeachment. Over the past few days, he’s suggested that impeaching him would lead to a “civil war” and has ranted against Rep. Schiff.

What do you think?

Just checked what the conversation seems to be on here and it appears that Trump has indeed incited and encouraged the people to turn on each other and have an internal war. Seems his knowledge of the Apartheid philosophy may be the only thing he is intelligent about. Or perhaps Putin is in his ear. For those of you that aren’t up on what went on with the Apartheid.

DIVIDE THE PEOPLE INTO SMALL MANAGEABLE GROUPS AND TURN THEM ON EACH OTHER. THEN YOU CAN CONTROL THEM ALL.

If you don’t think this is what is going on, THINK AGAIN.

“YOU, YOURSELF, have made many comments encouraging violence against the right. You are the epitome of a hypocrite.” banstan

Bullshit. I have never called for violence against anyone let alone those of a particular political persusion, unless you call locking up criminals violence against them.

You are confusing me with someone else on the right, of which a whole bunch here call for violence against somebody every week.

“OK contusion, to put it bluntly, YOU are the person who is wrong. you have been wrong EVERY TIME before. You’re wrong this time, too. How does it feel to have a perfect record where being wrong is concerned? How does it feel to NOT have an answer to how wrong you have been? AND, only a a person like you would not be able to see that I answered your question more than once. PERIOD.” banstan I am sorry. I must have confused you since you STILL didn’t answer my question, which if you remember was: “What if you… Read more »

>Screwtape< I agree and have been predicting a Civil War will occur ever since the members of the Jackass Party began their scheme to oust Trump the day after the November 2016 election. Every crooked excuse they used to have him thrown out of Office has failed; as well their latest coup d'etat attempt (they're calling it an "impeachment" for a yet to be determined excuse) which will blow up in their faces. +++++ I'm also suggesting the jackass be disposed of (Don't use a gun – NO violent guns are permitted!) and replaced with a Capon. A Capon would… Read more »

genital contusion- The PERFECT comment from a STUD like you. You really have manhood issues. How in the HELL can you not interpret the left’s rhetoric as hate speech and calling out for violence against the right? YOU, contusion, is what is wrong in the world today. YOU, YOURSELF, have made many comments encouraging violence against the right. You are the epitome of a hypocrite.

“I’m up for a civil war.” I Ching

So what you are saying is that you are willing to go up against your neighbors, the blue force, the military, and the government and our Constitution. Ok, just so long as we understand each other.

Did you get that FBI? That was your friend, I Ching.
