Trump sending armed soldiers to border, dares Dems to try to impeach: I’ll ‘head to the US Supreme Court’

President Donald Trump is making sure there’s no confusion over his “Game Over” announcement following the release of Robert Mueller’s report.

The president fired off a pair of tweets on Wednesday to “partisan” Democrats and even the Mexican government, making it clear he is not playing any more political games and will take things to court if necessary.

Trump reiterated that “I DID NOTHING WRONG” in a tweet aimed at the report “written by Angry Democrats and Trump Haters,” pointing out again the waste of money and time undertaken in the two-year investigation which found his campaign had not colluded with Russia to undermine the 2016 U.S. election.

“If the partisan Dems ever tried to Impeach, I would first head to the U.S. Supreme Court,” he wrote, adding that “there are no Crimes by me at all.”

Trump’s attack came after Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena for former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify on the Mueller investigation next month, something the White House plans to oppose along with other requests for testimony from current and former aides.

“I allowed my lawyers and all the people to go and testify to Mueller — and you know how I feel about that whole group of people that did the Mueller report,” Trump told The Washington Post on Tuesday. “I was so transparent; they testified for so many hours. They have all of that information that’s been given.”

He tweeted Wednesday about how transparent he had been while Mueller’s investigation went on.

“I didn’t have to do this, but now they want more,” Trump noted.

The president also fired a warning shot at Mexico’s government Wednesday following a confrontation between members of Mexico’s military and American National Guardsmen, announcing that he is sending “armed soldiers” to the border in response.

“Mexico’s Soldiers recently pulled guns on our National Guard Soldiers, probably as a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers on the Border. Better not happen again!” Trump tweeted Wednesday, referring to the April 13 incident.

The Department of Defense’s Northern Command is still reportedly investigating the incident which took place at a remote border area in Texas when the Mexican soldiers believed the Americans had crossed the border into Mexico.

“Five to six Mexican military personnel questioned two U.S. Army soldiers,” who were near Clint, Texas, in US territory, according to a statement by the U.S. Northern Command. As Bizpac Review reported, “Mexican soldiers pointed their rifles at the Americans and took a pistol from one of the U.S. soldiers and placed it in the U.S. vehicle.”

“After a brief discussion between the soldiers from the two nations, the Mexican military members departed the area,” Northern Command said in a statement. “The U.S. soldiers immediately contacted CBP, who responded quickly. Throughout the incident, the U.S. soldiers followed all established procedures and protocols.”

The president praised the “GREAT job Border Patrol and Law Enforcement is doing on our Southern Border” in another tweet on Wednesday, while noting how “Mexico is doing very little for us.”
