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.
