“Witch hunt”: Trump commented on his attempt to impeach

The ex-president intrigued the Americans with the continuation of the “joint journey”

Former President of the United States Donald Trump, after the Senate voted to acquit him in the second impeachment trial, accused Democrats of political harassment and called the impeachment attempt a “witch hunt”.

This is stated in the statement of Trump, reports NBC.

“This was another stage of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our country. No president has ever gone through anything like this,“ Trump said.

He also noted that the Democrats received “an unhindered pass to trample on the rule of law” and “turn justice into an instrument of political revenge and the persecution of people and points of view with which they disagree.”

The former president called himself a fighter for the rule of law.

“I have always been and always will be a fighter for the unwavering rule of law, for the heroes of law enforcement, and for the right of Americans to peacefully and honorably discuss current issues without anger and hatred,” Trump said.

He also thanked the legal team and “all the senators and members of the U.S. Congress who have stood proudly for the Constitution that we all respect, “and said he still has something to offer Americans to” make America great again.”

“Our historic, patriotic, and beautiful' Make America Great Again ' movement has just begun. I have much to share with you in the months ahead, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. Nothing like this has ever happened! “ — intrigued Trump.

Recall that on Saturday, February 13, the US Senate failed to collect votes for the impeachment of former President Donald Trump. To find him guilty of sedition, at least 17 more Republican votes were needed in addition to the 50 Democratic votes, but only 7 Republican representatives joined the charges.

The former president was charged under the article — “incitement to mutiny” because of the imputed calls for riots in the Capitol, which occurred on January 6, when Congress approved the victory of Joe Biden in the presidential election of 2020.

Thus, Trump managed to avoid impeachment for the second time.
