WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Former U.S. President Donald J. Trump today spoke out through his legal team against the impeachment trial filed against him by Democrats, saying they have “Trump Derangement Syndrome”.
While there is no official medical disease called Trump Derangement Syndrome, the term is often used for the frenzy and hatefulness of anti-Trump individuals against both the President and those who support and voted for him.
“During the past four years, Democrat members of the United States House of Representatives have filed at least nine resolutions to impeach Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, each containing charges more outlandish than the next,” Trump said in a statement. “One might have been excused for thinking that the Democrats’ fevered hatred for Citizen Trump and their “Trump Derangement Syndrome” would have broken by now, seeing as he is no longer the President, and yet for the second time in just over a year the United States Senate is preparing to
sit as a Court of Impeachment, but this time over a private citizen who is a former President.”
Trump said the action against him is nothing more than a political act.
“In this country, the Constitution – not a political party and not politicians – reigns supreme. But through this latest Article of Impeachment now before the Senate, Democrat politicians seek to
carve out a mechanism by which they can silence a political opponent and a minority party,” Trump added. “Senate must summarily reject this brazen political act.”
Trump’s response continued:
The intellectual dishonesty and factual vacuity put forth by the House Managers in their trial memorandum only serve to further punctuate the point that this impeachment proceeding was never about seeking justice.
Instead, this was only ever a selfish attempt by Democratic leadership in the House to prey upon the feelings of horror and confusion that fell upon all Americans across the entire political spectrum upon seeing the destruction at the Capitol on January 6 by a few hundred people. Instead of acting to heal the nation, or at the very least focusing on prosecuting the lawbreakers who stormed the Capitol, the Speaker of the House and her allies have tried to callously harness the chaos of the moment for their own political gain.
On January 6, 2021, rioters entered the Capitol building and wrought unprecedented havoc, mayhem, and death.
In a brazen attempt to further glorify violence, the House Managers took several pages of their Memorandum to restate over 50 sensationalized media reports detailing the horrific incidents and shocking violence of those hours. Counsel for the 45th President hereby stipulates that what happened at the Capitol by those criminals was horrible and horrific in every sense of those words. Their actions were utterly inexcusable and deserve robust and swift investigation and prosecution.
