President Trump ripped into House Democrats and what he characterized as the partisan impeachment vote that made him only the third president to be impeached by the House.
“Through their depraved actions today, crazy Nancy Pelosi’s House Democrats have branded themselves with an eternal mark of shame, and it really is, it’s a disgrace,” Trump said in front of a packed crowd in the Kellogg Arena in Battle Creek, Michigan. “They think the Washington swamp should be able to veto the results of an election. That’s what they think. There’s never been a time like this.”
Trump mocked California Rep. Adam Schiff, who led the impeachment proceedings in the House Intelligence Committee.
“This guy Schiff, ‘I have absolute proof. I have this, I have that. This, that.’ Anytime he sees a camera, and he’s stone-faced. Right? Stone-faced. He’s a pathological liar — he gets up, and I’ve never seen anything like it — even I was saying, ‘I wonder what he has?'”
