Former President Donald Trump wasn’t happy when the House of Representatives adopted two articles of impeachment against him, and he threatened legal action in response, according to an upcoming book by New York Times journalist Maggie Haberman.
Trump’s alleged call for legal action came after the House adopted articles of impeachment against him in 2019, CNN reported, after a formal House inquiry revealed he had pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the son of Democratic presidential rival Joe Biden.
“I’ll just sue Congress. They can’t do this to me,” Trump said, according to excerpts from Haberman’s book.
Other revelations from the book have surfaced this week, including Trump’s reported racist assumption that a group of congressional staff members were waiters and his request for them to grab food, according to Rolling Stone.
