President Donald Trump commented on impeachment Tuesday, claiming he’s unconcerned by the possibility and positing that “the people would revolt if that happened.”
The remark came during a White House interview with Reuters, his first since federal prosecutors in New York filed a sentencing memo for Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney.
“It’s hard to impeach somebody who hasn’t done anything wrong and who’s created the greatest economy in the history of our country,” said Trump.
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani also declared in August that the “American people would revolt” against impeachment.
“President Trump is completely cleared,” he said. “You’d only impeach him for political reasons.”
But Democrats and committed conservatives alike have said that “it’s time to put a conspiracy theory to rest.”
