(FreedomJournal.org)- President Donald Trump hit back at Democrats threatening fresh impeachment hearings, suggesting that if they go ahead with the radical move, the Republicans will sweep up in the November elections. President Trump fired back at the barrage of smears and attacks that came his way following his announcement that he would put forward a nominee to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Saturday.
“I think then we win the election, then we will all elections if they do that,” President Trump said about their threats to impeach him again.
During a Fox and Friends segment, which President Trump has committed to doing once a week until election day, he said that he had heard several major players in the Democratic Party were threatening to impeach him.
“I heard yesterday, I heard if I do it, if I do it, they’re going to impeach me,” he said about nominating a Supreme Court justice. “So they’re impeaching me for doing what I constitutionally have to do. Here’s the thing, and I think then we win the election, then we win all elections if they do that. You saw what happened the last time, my numbers went way up last time they did it.”
President Trump predicted that the Republicans will win the House and that he thinks, regardless of whether they push for impeachment, the Republicans will win back the House anyway.
Trump also addressed the obvious, saying that the Democrats wouldn’t hesitate for a minute in nominating a new judge for the Supreme Court if the roles were reversed. He said that there was “zero” chance the Democrats would wait for a new president to put forward a new nominee and even said that they are now planning to “pack the courts.”
“Biden made that statement before,” Trump said. “If you go back, he made the statement. I’m sure he doesn’t remember it, but he made the statement before. So if the shoe was on the other foot as they say, there would be no chance that they wouldn’t be doing it. They’d be doing it, and they’d be doing it probably a lot faster than we’ll do it.”
In a recent interview, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said that he wouldn’t answer a question about whether he would pack the Supreme Court with more judges if he became president.

“It’s a legitimate question, but let me tell you why I’m not going answer…it will shift the focus.”

The former vice president argued that it would distract from the issues if he said either way, which pretty much tells you he would pack the courts if he is elected to ensure that far-left Democratic pledges would be upheld by judges he would appoint.
