Trump Lashed Out at “Evil” Lawmakers Who Voted to Impeach Him

HeadlineFeb 07, 2020

President Trump hailed his impeachment acquittal Thursday and lashed out at Democratic opponents, calling the lawmakers who voted to impeach him “sick,” “evil” and “corrupt,” singling out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney. This is Trump at the White House Thursday.

President Donald Trump: “And this is really not a news conference. It’s not a speech. It’s not anything. It’s just we’re sort of — it’s a celebration, because we have something that just worked out. I mean, it worked out. We went through hell, unfairly, did nothing wrong. Did nothing wrong.”

Trump also attacked Pelosi and others during the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday morning. Trump is also reportedly preparing to oust Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman, a key figure who testified to the House in President Trump’s impeachment inquiry. The Washington Post reports aides within the Trump administration are discussing whether to remove or reassign several administration officials who testified during the impeachment hearings.
