Town Hall reported on Trump's Comey prediction:
President Trump, commanding a triumphant scene at the White House complete with the playing of “Hail to the Chief,” railed against what he called an “evil” impeachment process on Thursday hours after his historic acquittal in the Senate.
“It was evil. It was corrupt. It was dirty cops. It was leakers and liars. This should never, ever happen to another president, ever,” Trump said. “It was a disgrace.”
He detailed the timeline of investigations, remarking of the Russia probe: "It was all bulls---."
"I just want to thank my family for sticking through it," he said. "This was not part of the deal, if I was going to run for president..I didn't know I was going to have to run again and again and again every single week, but they stuck with me."
President Trump came out swinging to the disdain of critics but his proponents can not find blame in his response.
He called the campaign launched by Democrats the past few months (and the past few years), as a "witch hunt" and "a disgrace." He suspected that a weaker president would not have survived the impeachment. Trump pinpointed his victory to one key decision he made a few years ago.
"Had I not fired James Comey, who was a disaster by the way, it's possible I wouldn't be standing here right now," Trump said. "We caught him in the act."
He later added that Comey is a "sleazebag" and part of a larger campaign of "bad cops" who were trying to remove him from office.
The president again took a swipe at Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) for being the sole Republican to vote to convict him on the first article of impeachment, abuse of power. The senator, who Trump preferred to call a "failed presidential candidate," used "religion as a crutch" to justify his vote, the president.
