(FOX NEWS) – President Trump, ahead of the first public hearings in the impeachment inquiry, maintained Friday that the all-consuming political storm is actually making him “stronger” by energizing the base—claiming the parade of witnesses to date has not hurt him while turning up his attacks on the whistleblower who triggered the probe.
“The whistleblower is a disgrace to our country,” Trump told reporters outside the White House, before leaving for a political event in Georgia. He went on to declare the whistleblower’s lawyer, who is Mark Zaid, “should be sued, and maybe for treason.”
The comments reflect a White House defiant over the escalating impeachment inquiry, which moves into a public phase next week with two hearings scheduled in the House.
His fiery criticism of the anonymous whistleblower, whose identity Trump said should be revealed, comes despite the whistleblower’s legal team sending a cease-and-desist letter to the White House demanding Trump stop the attacks — and warning about the possibility the whistleblower could be “physically harmed,” according to The Hill.
