Is Trump on a Collision Course With Impeachment?Breaking News
tags: impeachment, Trump
President Trump was energized. Fresh from the fight to confirm Brett Kavanaugh, he was firing up thousands of supporters at a rally by complaining about how Democrats had treated his nominee and how they may yet try to remove Justice Kavanaugh from the bench.
“They’re saying, ‘We’ll impeach him!’” Mr. Trump practically bellowedinto the microphone here last week, his voice brimming with incredulity and righteous outrage. “Impeach him for what? For what?” The crowd booed on cue.
“Besides that,” Mr. Trump then added slyly, “I have to go first, right?” The crowd laughed.
Perhaps only in the Trump era would the prospect of being impeached become a punch line for the president of the United States. But after almost two years of living under the cloud of a possible impeachment, it may soon cease to be a laughing matter. While Democrats are largely ducking the topic on the campaign trail, few in Washington doubt that impeachment will be on the table if they win the House on Nov. 6.
