Last Tuesday, President Trump made a remark about his second impeachment, saying, “We want no violence. We want absolutely no violence,” as the Democrats try to impeach him a few days before he ends his term. 

On Tuesday morning, as the President is walking to Marine One, he made a statement to the reporters waiting for him outside of the White House. He said We want no violence on the impeachment and that it is the “continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics.”

He further added that this move by the Democrats is causing “tremendous anger” to the people. 

Meanwhile, Democratic Senator Joe Manchin also aired his statement against the impeachment articles against Trump, saying that this decision by the Democrats is “ill-advised” and that it does not have enough support from the Senate.

During his interview on Fox News last Monday, Machin said, “I don’t see any of that, because there will be 48, still 48 Democrats, until we seat Warnock and Senator Ossoff.” He further added, “so, until that happens, you need 67 votes. I think, my arithmetic, that means we have 19 Republicans. I don’t see that. And I think the House should know that also. We have been trying to send that message over. They know the votes aren’t there. You would think that they would do that.”

He also added that the plan by the Democrats to impeach Trump is going against what Joe Biden is trying to do. Manchin said that Joe Biden, who is coming in as the President with the objective of “trying to heal the country and trying to be the President of all American people,” should be rethinking about the articles of impeachment that they are trying to push. He stated that instead of healing the country, Trump’s impeachment would make the American people divide and fight again.

The Democratic Senator also believes that there is no rush to push through the impeachment of Trump right now. In case the party still thinks it is needed, then they do it later.

Senator Manchin also advised other Democrats to let the judicial system do its job instead and let the investigation go on. He continued and stated that they should let the evidence come forward, and then they can move one from there. “We are a country of the rule of law, the bedrock of who are. Let that take its place,” Manchin said. 

Democrats move to impeach President Trump in response to what happened in the Capitol last evidence. The party claimed without evidence that Trump “encouraged” and “incited” the “insurrection.”

On Monday, the House Democrats released an article of impeachment saying that they will go against President Trump. The article contains accusations against Trump of allegedly “willfully making statements” that “encouraged — and foreseeably resulted in — imminent lawless action at the Capitol.” In addition to this, they also accused President Trump of inciting the mob that unlawfully breached the Capitol. 

However, videos of President Trump at the “Save America Rally” that was held before the breach at the Capitol say otherwise. Contrary to the accusations of Democrats, Trump told his supporters to “peacefully” march to the U.S. Capitol. He also said that they should “cheer” on Congress members who were protesting the certification of the Electoral College vote.

“… We’re going to walk down to the Capitol — and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women, and we’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them.” He continued and said, “because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong,” Trump told his supporters. 

Trump continued and said, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. Today, we will see whether Republicans stand strong for the integrity of our elections.”
