WASHINGTON | Impeachment now? Trump spins Democrats’ talk as 2020 ploy
WASHINGTON —Jan 04, 2019—One day into their new House majority, several Democrats are trying to jump-start the impeachment action that many in the party have been talking about for two years. President Donald Trump pushed back on Friday, saying they’re only acting because they know they can’t win the White House in 2020.
His spin on the contentious topic — Democratic leaders generally avoid even using the “I” word — came as a newly elected Michigan Democratic congresswoman ignited a furor on Capitol Hill with a profanity-laden pledge to work to impeach Trump.
