President Trump unleashed on his opponents while thanking his family and defenders for sticking by his side during his post-acquittal press conference.
President Trump also revealed that if he had not fired James Comey he would probably not be standing there today.
According to Fox News:
President Trump, commanding a triumphant scene at the White House complete with the playing of “Hail to the Chief,” railed against what he called an “evil” impeachment process on Thursday hours after his historic acquittal in the Senate.
“It was evil. And it was corrupt; it was dirty cops; it was leakers and liars. This should never, ever happen to another president, ever,” Trump said. “It was a disgrace.”
He detailed the timeline of investigations, remarking of the Russia probe: “It was all bulls—.”
“I just want to thank my family for sticking through it,” he said. “This was not part of the deal, if I was going to run for president..I didn’t know I was going to have to run again and again and again every single week, but they stuck with me.”
Town Hall reported on Trump’s reaction post-impeachment. Clearly the president knew was was and continues to happen.
“They were going to try and overthrow the government of the United States, a duly-elected president.”
Since its inception, President Trump has called the campaign launched by Democrats the past few months (and the past few years), as a “witch hunt” and “a disgrace.” He commented that a weaker president would not have survived the impeachment, and he’s right. I’m not sure any presidential candidate on either side could have survived what Obama and team concocted for Trump.
The president credited his victory to one key decision, a decision he made a few years ago.
“Had I not fired James Comey, who was a disaster by the way, it’s possible I wouldn’t be standing here right now. We caught him in the act.”
The president later called Comey a “sleazebag”. He then alluded to a cadre of “bad cops” who were trying to remove him from office.
Fox News reported about President Trump’s swipe at Mitt Romney:
The president again took a swipe at Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) for being the sole Republican to vote to convict him on the first article of impeachment, abuse of power. The senator, who Trump preferred to call a “failed presidential candidate,” used “religion as a crutch” to justify his vote, the president.
Without a doubt the president has taken off the gloves. His recent firing of those in the White House who began this mess is only the first step of many.
Rumors persist that both Strzok and McCabe will be arrested this week, as early as Monday or Tuesday. If this occurs we will certainly cover it. I will also write another post soon on the possibility of this information being true.
For now, suffice it to say that if two of Comey’s henchmen go down, he won’t be far behind.
What do you think should happen to Comey?
