(CNSNews.com) - President Donald Trump said Friday that he “wouldn’t mind” if the House proceeds with an impeachment inquiry at this point, because “we have no rights.”
“I wouldn’t mind because we have no rights. They way they're doing it, they've taken away our rights. So, if they proceed -- and, you know, they'll just get their people. They're all in line, because even though many of them don’t want to vote, they have no choice. They have to follow their leadership, and then we'll get it to the Senate, and we're going to win,” Trump said.
The GOP has been “very unified,” the president said.
“This is the greatest witch hunt in the history of our country. So we beat the one that started immediately. We went through two years of Mueller, and that came out like a 10. It came out perfect, and a few days go by and they start this nonsense, and this is just as ridiculous,” he said.
“So the Democrats, unfortunately, they have the votes. They can vote very easily, even though most of them, many of them, don’t believe they should do it, and I do believe that because of what they're doing with Pelosi and their real leaders, AOC plus 3 -- that's their real leaders -- I really believe that they're going to pay a tremendous price at the polls,” Trump said.
Asked whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made any promises about an impeachment vote in the Senate, Trump said, “Well, I don't know about Mitch. I have a lot of respect for Mitch McConnell. I know that. I saw his statements, and he thinks that this is ridiculous. He thinks it's unfair. I saw his statement yesterday that he put out where he read my phone conversation, and he thought it was a wonderful conversation, and it was.
“But, see, the Democrats don't talk about that anymore. They try and go to other things. These people are looking for anything they can get because they know they're going to lose the election, and we're in election season now. For them to be doing this now, it's never been done,” he said.
