U.S. President Donald Trump said that the situation around calls for his impeachment is dangerous for the country. The head of the state's commentary is quoted by CNBC.
Speaking to reporters, Trump said he did not want violence. вЂњI think it (impeachment) is going to cause incredible anger,вЂќ he added. The president also pointed out that the topic of impeachment is вЂњan extension of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics.вЂќ
In addition, the American leader said his speech to supporters on January 6, after which riots began outside the U.S. Congress, was fully acceptable. According to him, this has been confirmed by experts who studied it.
In this case, as noted by the TV channel, Trump вЂњdid not condemn the violence in the Capitol.
The day before, on January 11, the House of Representatives of the US Congress published a resolution on the impeachment of the current President of the country Donald Trump. The politician is accused of sedition, as well as the fact that he вЂњposed a serious threat to the security of the United States and government institutions.вЂќ At the same time, it became known that the Democrats secured support for the resolution: 218 congressmen are expected to speak in favor of it.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that the document will be put to a vote unless Trump resigns or Vice President Mike Pence terminates his powers as head of state.
