JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

During an interview with Reuters on Tuesday afternoon, President Trump suggested there would be mass chaos if Democrats follow through with their threats of impeachment.

“I’m not concerned, no,” he told Reuters. “I think that the people would revolt if that happened. … It’s hard to impeach somebody who hasn’t done anything wrong and who’s created the greatest economy in the history of our country.”

Democratic leaders have ramped up their rhetoric surrounding potential investigations they’d like to conduct once the party has control in the House in January. Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) over the weekend suggested that Michael Cohen and Trump’s hush payments before the election could be considered an “impeachable offense.”
