The controversy surrounding Donald Trump’s first term in office is palpable and unprecedented.
From the very moment that his stunning electoral win sent Hillary Clinton scampering back to the drawing board, (and to write a concession speech that she never intended to utter), Trump has been a target of the dramatically-named “resistance”.
Throughout his first two-and-a-half years in office, Trump has been attacked incessantly by hysterical democrats both in the media and in Washington DC. The anti-Trump diatribes have been so raucous that they’ve coined a new term among observers: Trump Derangement Syndrome.
One of the latest to come down with the figurate affliction is ex-GOP Representative Tom Coleman, who today added his own “i” word to the conversation regarding Trump.
A former Republican lawmaker who served for 17 years in the House of Representatives called Trump an “illegitimate president” and said he should be impeached. “I’m calling for impeachment now because the Mueller report is out, and in it [special counsel Robert Mueller] describes 10 obstructions of justice charges that he could not bring because of a Department of Justice rule and regulation that says you can’t indict a sitting president. That’s number one,” former Rep. Tom Coleman, who represented Missouri from 1976 to 1993 in the House, told CNN’s Erin Burnett.
Coleman also said that Trump is an “illegitimate president” because he welcomed help and influence from the Russians in his campaign.” Coleman cited as an example the way his then campaign chairman Paul Manafort shared information with a “Russian intelligence asset” during a meeting in New York. “It’s wrong and it needs to be handled and looked at by the Congress because I believe it’s an impeachable offense,” he said.
In the wake of the Mueller report, Special Counsel Robert Mueller himself declined to prosecute the President. The reason for his reticence has been widely debated in the mainstream media ever since.
Coleman’s stoking of the liberal flames will not go unnoticed, as democratic lawmakers continue to trudge further into the muck in order to disparage The Donald.
