To President Donald Trump, the House’s vote on impeachment wasn’t just an affront to him, but to the millions of Americans who voted for him.
“Yesterday’s vote by the radical Democrats is an attack on democracy itself,” Trump said during a Friday night rally in Tupelo, Mississippi.
Trump’s remark follows the House voting Thursday largely along party lines to set the ground rules for an impeachment inquiry. The vote was a litmus test for the impeachment process, with moderate Democrats who had been tepid on diving into impeachment voicing their near-unanimous support.
