Trump loses his cool after Pelosi announces impeachment inquiry and that he "betrayed" America (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump is not a happy camper right now.
Shortly after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told the world via press conference that the president "betrayed" America, Trump sent off a frenzy of tweets.
This is clearly getting under his skin, and it should. An impeachment inquiry is not a good look.
"Such an important day at the United Nations, so much work and so much success, and the Democrats purposely had to ruin and demean it with more breaking news Witch Hunt garbage. So bad for our Country!" he wrote in one.
Part of him couldn't even believe it was happening:
"Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff and, of course, Maxine Waters! Can you believe this?"
Trump revealed today that he would be releasing a transcript of his call with Ukraine President, which he says shows no quid pro quo. But, Pelosi says that's not necessary to impeach. They have all the evidence they need so far to continue.
"They never even saw the transcript of the call. A total Witch Hunt!" the president shouted online.
He then cried "PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!"
Here's the announcement that set him off:
"The past several months we have been investigating and litigating in the courts so the House can gather all the relevant facts and consider whether to exercise its full Article One powers, including a constitutional power of the utmost gravity, approval of articles of impeachment.
And this week the president has admitted to asking the President of Ukraine to take actions which would benefit him politically. The actions of the Trump presidency revealed the dishonorable fact of the president's betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security, and betrayal of the integrity of our elections."
Pelosi has backed off impeachment for quite some time and that has angered Democrats, but they appear to have almost everything they need now to continue.
The White House has still not allowed information on the whistle-blower to be released to Congress, an action required by law, so that is likely to stir the waters even more.
A key hearing will take place on Thursday with Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire. If he stonewalls the House even more on this pivotal issue, expect more Democrats to get on board with impeaching the president.
