US President Donald Trump on Wednesday slammed a Democratic report presenting the case for his impeachment as a “joke” and lambasted his opponents for proceeding with hearings during his trip to a NATO summit.
“What they are doing is a very bad thing for our country,” Trump said when asked about the report from the House Intelligence Committee during a meeting in Britain with Italy’s prime minister. “It’s a joke.”
He called it a “disgrace” that the House Judiciary Committee was holding a hearing Wednesday to consider drawing up articles of impeachment “when we are in London.”
