Trump Tweets His Impeachment Would Lead to a 'Civil War'.
On his account, the president referenced a comment by Pastor Robert Jeffress.
If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.” Pastor Robert Jeffress, @FoxNews, President Donald Trump, via Twitter.
Trump's tweet has since earned criticism from those in his own party.
Illinois GOP congressman Adam Kinzinger has even called Trump's mention of a civil war, "repugnant.".
I have visited nations ravaged by civil war.
I have never imagined such a quote to be repeated by a President.
, Adam Kinzinger, via Twitter.
The president is under intense scrutiny for allegedly trying to force the country of Ukraine to investigate 2020 candidate Joe Biden.
The growing scandal has now led the Democratic-controlled House to start an impeachment inquiry.
Trump's talks with the Ukraine were made known by an unnamed whistleblower.
According to House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff, the whistleblower is expected to testify soon
