President Donald Trump, facing calls for impeachment from Democrats, has been often compared to former President Richard Nixon, who resigned in 1974: before lawmakers could remove him from office after the climactic ‘Watergate scandal.’
“He left,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “I don’t leave. Big difference. I don’t leave. We did nothing wrong except create the greatest economy in the history of our country. We did nothing wrong except rebuild our military like nobody’s ever seen before.”
Trump’s comments came shortly after John Dean, former White House counsel to Nixon, testified before the House Judiciary Committee and said that there were many similarities between both Trump and Nixon. President Trump in response said “John Dean’s been a loser for many years.”
Democrats are pushing for impeachment linked to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election and questions as to whether the president obstructed justice.
However, Mueller concluded the investigation when he found “insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy” on election interference. This did not satisfy Democrats - who are still not convinced, despite the clear evidence. After all, they are devastated that after all the time and money spent, the Mueller Report was a disaster!
Trump tweeted Sunday evening. “But they want a Redo, or Do Over. They are even bringing in @CNN sleazebag attorney John Dean. Sorry, no Do Overs - Go back to work!”
“You can’t impeach somebody when there’s never been a thing done wrong,” Trump said. “When you look at past impeachments, whether it was President Clinton, or I guess President Nixon, Never got there.”
President Trump believes that Democrats are attempting to defame him ahead of the 2020 presidential election. Nevertheless, Mueller’s report made it absolutely clear that there was “no collusion, no obstruction.”
