“ The good thing is that the Republicans have NEVER been more united. We will win !” Trump tweeted .
Speaker Nancy Pelosi earlier asked her party to draft articles of impeachment based on allegations that Trump abused his office by pressuring Ukraine into a scheme to embarrass one of his main opponents for reelection next year .
While impeachment is expected to pass in the Democratic- led House , the Senate is held by a Republican majority and would likely acquit the US president as his 2020 reelection campaign gathers pace .
Trump tweeted that the “ Radical Left Democrats have just announced that they are going to seek to Impeach me over NOTHING.”
Echoing a frequent Republican argument , he said that the “ important and seldom – used act of Impeachment will be used routinely to attack future Presidents . That is not what our Founders had in mind . ”
