Impeachment Day Arrives As Trump Labels Process "A Partisan Coup"


President Trump today’s expected impeachment by the House amounts to declaring "open war on American democracy." In a six-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Trump expressed his "strongest and most powerful protest" against impeachment. He also called it a “partisan crusade.”

But that’s not all. Trump accused Democrats of “pursuing an unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power.” But his ire wasn’t just focused on the Democrats – Mr. Trump also takes issue with Pelosi’s remarks about praying for him. "Even worse than offending the Founding Fathers,” he writes. “You are offending Americans of faith by continually saying you pray for the President when you know this statement is not true, unless it is meant in a negative sense."
