Trump ridiculed over threat to undo impeachment in Supreme Court: ‘Read the Constitution'
President Donald Trump melted down again Wednesday morning, threatening to use the U.S. Supreme Court to protect him from a Congress that rapidly expanding its investigations into his possibly criminal and definitely impeachable actions.
After accusing British Intelligence of spying on him (an accusation he made just hours after accepting an invitation from Buckingham Palace to meet with the Queen in June) Trump went off the rails.
Trump's tweets expose the fact that his plan all along has been to install loyalists throughout the federal government, including the judiciary, to protect him – and that he thinks that's they way government is supposed to function. (It's not.)
"If the partisan Dems ever tried to Impeach, I would first head to the U.S. Supreme Court," Trump threatened.
The U.S. Supreme Court has no authority to prevent Congress from its constitutionally assigned duty to impeach should it decide the president has committed "Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors."
