Trump: Democrats' Impeachment Effort is a 'Coup' to 'Take Power Away from the People'
President highlights Democrats' efforts to remove him from office
President Donald Trump has accused the Democrats of pushing their ongoing impeachment efforts as part of a “coup" to remove him from office and "take power away from the people."
On Tuesday, Trump wrote on Twitter:
"As I learn more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion that what is taking place is not an impeachment, it is a COUP, intended to take away the Power of the People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!"
Since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi launched her impeachment inquiry against Trump last week following the whistleblower’s complaint regarding the president's conversation with Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky, the Democrats have pulled out all the stops.
During private remarks at a reception in New York City after the United Nations General Assembly, Trump said:
"We’re at war. These people are sick, they’re sick, and nobody’s called it out like I do. I don’t understand, people are afraid to call it out, they are afraid to say that the press is crooked, we have a crooked press, we have a dishonest media."
The New York Times then leaked the remarks.
On Monday, Fox News contributor Dan Bongino claimed the Democrats are ramping up their impeachment efforts against Trump because the party is beginning to panic at the prospect being linked to illegal spying.
"It's never going to stop. I mean, the republic is dying a slow death," Bongino said Monday on "Fox & Friends."
"We're on life support here... They're panicking because the IG report's about to come out, which is about to expose a massive government spying operation against Donald Trump."

His lies were made in perhaps the most blatant and sinister manner ever seen in the great Chamber. He wrote down and read terrible things, then said it was from the mouth of the President of the United States. I want Schiff questioned at the highest level for Fraud & Treason.....— Donald J.

On Sunday, Trump said the congressional Democrats' push to impeach him, “is the single greatest scam in the history of American politics.”
“The Democrats want to take away your guns, they want to take away your health care, they want to take away your vote, they want to take away your freedom,” Trump said in the video.
“They want to take away everything. We can never let this happen,” he said.
“We’re fighting to drain the swamp, and that’s exactly what I’m doing.”
On Saturday, Trump released a video exposing former Vice President Joe Biden's ties to Ukraine's top prosecutor being fired while investigating Hunter Biden's company.
The short ad also takes aim at Democrats and accomplices in the establishment media who are flipping the scandal and using it to call for President Trump's impeachment.
Trump posted the new video to Twitter with a caption that simply reads:
"I AM DRAINING THE SWAMP."
