Though he’d deny it if you asked him, President Donald Trump is in a complete tizzy over impeachment.
If you doubt that Trump has lost what was left of his senses in the days following the adoption of two articles of impeachment against him, you don’t have to look any further than a tweet the president sent out in which he referenced Russian President Vladimir Putin saying that the entire impeachment process was “far-fetched” and would be rejected in the U.S. Senate:
Trump linked to a story from the Associated Press which quoted Putin, along with his own whining:
A total Witch Hunt! https://t.co/PEe35rewE9

“Trump’s tweet was a bit surprising given suspicions about Putin’s influence on Trump — and the Kremlin’s attempt to undermine American democracy by meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Former White House aides have said they believe Putin was the source of the debunked (and self-serving) conspiracy theory to Trump that it was Ukraine — not Russia — that meddled in the election. That set Trump up for a skewed relationship with Ukraine that led to his impeachment. “
Then there was the reaction on social media:
The man who ordered and funded systematic attacks on our elections, depriving Americans our democracy and currently working to attack again in 2020, just got an endorsement and tweet from the US potus…freaking unbelievable!

Trump to American citizens:
You don’t need to hear from Americans with first-hand knowledge who worked with me. Believe Putin! https://t.co/0EfVbn8JW0

Are you seriously using Putin as your defense against impeachment?
It is worse than I thought.
Nancy Pelosi is correct.
All roads lead to Putin.
