Things are certainly getting heated on Capitol Hill as a “formal impeachment inquiry” rolls into The Beltway.
This time, it’s UkraineGate – no doubt a mutation of RussiaGate in the eyes of the anti-Trump democrats – in which a whistleblower has alleged wrongdoing by President Trump during a July phone call with Ukraine’s leader Volodymyr Zelensky.
The President, for what little it’s worth in the eyes of the liberals, has been wholly transparent in the matter, and issuing whatever documents the Democrats have requested. Of course, Donald Trump has also been just a hair combative, as is his nature, and a recent retweet meant to demonstrate the divide that our nation faces is garnering some in-house criticism for the President.
President Donald Trump is warning that the Democrat-driven impeachment proceedings and any move to oust him from office amount to “treason” and would spark a civil war, prompting outrage from a Republican congressman.
Trump tweeted a conservative pastor’s comment that removing him would provoke a “civil war-like fracture” in America.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a former Air Force pilot who represents an Illinois district Trump won in 2016, tweeted on Sunday, “I have visited nations ravaged by civil war. … I have never imagined such a quote to be repeated by a President. This is beyond repugnant.”
The wording in question was far less extreme than Kinzinger let on.
That came after Trump tweeted a comment from the Rev. Robert Jeffress, pastor of the Southern Baptist megachurch First Baptist Dallas.
“If the Democrats are successful in removing the president from office, it will cause a civil war-like fracture in this nation from which our country will never heal,” Jeffress said on Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” which Trump posted a few hours later.
Certainly, the President is not in favor of Civil War, and to suggest otherwise would be a gross misrepresentation of the situation, yet, this is what the “resistance” has chosen to do.
