Former Trump adviser Roger Stone on Wednesday said a civil war would ensue if politicians moved to impeach President Trump, TMZ reported in a video.
“The people who are calling for impeachment are the people who didn’t vote for him. They need to get over it. They lost,” Stone told TMZ during an interview at Los Angeles International Airport. “Their candidate [Hillary Clinton] had every advantage. She spent $2 billion. He spent $275 million. Sorry. He whipped her ass.” (Related: 22 Republican Congressman Attacked in Impeach Trump Movement by Anonymous)

Stone said that, unlike 1974, the American people won’t stand for an impeachment. (In 1974, the House Judiciary Committee recommended that Richard M. Nixon be impeached and removed from office after the political scandals involving Watergate.) (Related: Robert Mueller’s Grand Jury Could Give GOP Establishment The Excuse They Need to Impeach)
