Russian President Vladimir Putin today in front of reporters commented on the impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump, predicting POTUS will not be removed from power and describing how the Democratic Party in the U.S. are bitter over losing the 2016 presidential election.
“As for continuing our dialogue until the end of Trump’s presidency, it looks like you are raising the issue that it is about to end. As for me, I am not sure of that. The Senate vote, where, as far as I know, the Republicans have the majority, still lies ahead. They will hardly want to oust a representative of their party from power for some trumped-up reasons,” Putin said, reported Russian state news agency TASS.
“This is just the continuation of the domestic political strife. The party, which lost the election, the Democratic Party, tried to achieve results through other means, accusing Trump of colluding with Russia. Later on, it turned out that there had been no collusion, so this cannot be the basis for impeachment. Now they are referring to alleged pressure on Ukraine. I don’t know what it is all about. Your members of Congress should know better,” the president added.
The Russian president made the remarks at his annual year end news conference.
