Bill Clinton: Trump Would Be Impeached Already If He Were A Democrat
After investigating allegations that the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe has yet to produce a single iota of evidence proving collusion.
The hysterical left-wing media continues to bombard the American public with propaganda that Trump’s presidency is illegitimate.
But if Trump were a Democrat and were being treated fairly by the press, former President Bill Clinton argued in an interview that aired Sunday, the current Commander-in-Chief would have “already been impeached.”
The media “have tried, by and large to cover this investigation based on the facts. If the roles were reversed – now this is me just talking based on my experience – if it were a Democratic president and these facts were present, most people I know in Washington believe impeachment hearings would have been done already,” Clinton CBS Sunday Morning’s Mo Rocca.
If Trump were a Democrat “the press would have been that hard or harder,” he continued. “But these are serious issues.”
The scandal-ridden 42nd president argued that he was unjustifiably impeached for lying under oath during his presidency about an affair he had with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
“I knew [impeachment] wouldn’t succeed. It wasn’t a pleasant experience but it was a fight that I was glad to undertake,” he said. “I knew there was nothing impeachable and so we fought it to the end and I’m glad.”
Clinton slammed Trump for “embarrassing” people like “Crooked Hillary” on Twitter.
“I don’t like all of this. I couldn’t be elected to anything now because I just don’t like embarrassing people,” he said. “My mother would have whipped me for five days in a row when I was a little boy if I spent all of my time bad mouthing people like this.”
The former president was accompanied by bestselling author, James Patterson, promoting their new book, The President is Missing, which hits the shelves Monday.
Patterson also criticized Trump’s rhetorical style.
“It’s unbelievable that he became president,” Patterson lamented. “But he figured some things out. I think most people do not like these tweets. They just wish that it wouldn’t go that way.”
