Former President Bill Clinton advised Trump today to ignore impeachment and focus on his agenda.
“My message would be, look, you got hired to do a job,” Clinton said during a phone interview with CNN. “You don’t get the days back you blow off. Every day is an opportunity to make something good happen.“
“And I would say, ‘I’ve got lawyers and staff people handling this impeachment inquiry, and they should just have at it,‘” he continued. “Meanwhile, I’m going to work for the American people. That’s what I would do.“
Clinton is in a rare position to offer insight on how Trump might handle the prospect of impeachment, given the GOP-controlled House impeached him in 1998.
As you know, The House held its first public impeachment hearing yesterday. Acting Ambassador for Ukraine William Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent were the people that testified. The next person to testify is former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. She will testify tomorrow.
