‘Proud Jewrican’ Geraldo Rivera: You Have To Come Through Me To Impeach Trump

    Fox News reporter Geraldo Rivera vowed that if anyone wants to impeach President Trump, “you’ll have to come through me.”

    Rivera went on a Twitter rant Wednesday following Robert Mueller’s press conference, in which the special counsel said: “If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”

    Rivera, who is Jewish, bashed Mueller in a series of tweets for starting a conversation about impeaching the president. “Thanks for nothing Bob. You are not saying there is ‘probable cause’ a crime was committed, you’re saying there is ‘possible’ cause,” he wrote.

    He added: “I’m betting #Impeachment goes nowhere. @realDonaldTrump would run the table.”

    Hours later, Rivera reflected that Trump was “besieged by haters who weaponized” the Department of Justice. Then came a bizarre threat veiled as a declaration:

    “Fair Warning, as I did with Bill Clinton in 1997-8, I tonight announce that if you want to impeach this president on these facts you’ll have to come through me,” he tweeted.
