WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is lashing out at the House impeachment inquiry and also criticizing Republicans for not sticking together.

Trump offered the lengthy screed during a Cabinet meeting Monday in which he repeatedly defended his phone call with the Ukrainian president that sparked the impeachment inquiry. And he called out Republicans, too, including Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, for failing to adequately defend him as the inquiry moves forward.

Trump says while he disagrees with Democrats’ policies, he respects them for sticking together, adding: “They don’t have Mitt Romney in their midst.”

Trump told reporters the Democrats only opened the impeachment investigation because they believe it will help them in the 2020 election.

He says: “I think they want to impeach me because it’s the only way they’re going to win.”

    Trump’s absolutely right about Republicans not sticking together. That lack of unity is exactly why the Democrats have been able to kick their asses for the last thirty or forty years in legislative matters. They’d better figure that out real soon or the result could be a disaster.

  • Not racist not violent but no longer silent

    President Trump is not wrong… Since before his inauguration they’ve wanted impeachment. Only way they’ll win in 2020 is booting him out of office on made up charges

  • stopping the madness

    The absolute worst of the worst are the RINOs that were voted in on his shirttails but have since totally turned their backs on him….cough, ROMNEY, cough.

    Trump’s absolutely right. For the last thirty five or forty years, for whatever reason, the Republicans have been getting their legislative butts kicked by the media-aided Democrats.Until they decide to grow a pair and start to fight back as one, the litany of Republican defeats in Congress will never end and the country will suffer for it.

    I said it when Trump first announced the Syrian withdrawl,Graham would use that against Trump on impeachment.A war nut–like his buddy McCain,this is the first indication that Graham would easily be swayed to vote for removal.Can’t trust a Republican,DJT.
    (Axios)In an interview with “Axios on HBO,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of President Trump’s most vital allies on Capitol Hill, opened the door to changing his mind on impeachment if there turns out to be what he considers a quid pro quo.
