Trump has dismissed his impending impeachment by saying it's just another fake news witch hunt, or whatever, but before he said that he was awfully worried about it.
NBC News reported yesterday evening that Trump personally called Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and asked her if there was something he could give her that would prevent impeachment.
“Don’t know what specifically set up the call, but we do know that there was a call between the two and in the call Donald Trump used language that we’ve heard him use before,” [MSNBC reporter Heidi Przybyla] said.
“The president actually said to Nancy Pelosi, ‘Hey, can we do something about this whistleblower complaint? Can we work something out?'” Przybyla told Melber, based on he conversations with sources in Pelosi’s office.
“And [Pelosi] said, ‘Yes, you can tell your people to obey the law,'” Przybyla recounted. “So she quickly swatted that down and made it clear that it is full steam ahead” on impeachment.
CNN reports that Trump was beside himself after Pelosi's announcement.
New York(CNN) - President Donald Trump was incredulous Tuesday as he sat in Trump Tower and watched House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announce she was launching a formal impeachment inquiry against him, sources familiar with the moment say. Sitting in the same building where he launched his long shot presidential campaign four years ago, Trump said he couldn't believe it, he later told people. [...]
After Pelosi's historic announcement, Trump immediately began lashing out, accusing Democrats of distracting from his successes at the United Nations General Assembly and arguing it was just "more breaking news Witch Hunt garbage."
But people close to him said he is not welcoming this impeachment fight. The President who keeps a careful watch on his approval numbers was unhappy.
The Big Wet Diaper President is unhappy.
