Trump calls impeachment accusation ‘ridiculous’

Washington: President Donald Trump responded to the announcement of impeachment charges on Tuesday by calling the accusations “ridiculous.” Trump -- who will be only the third US president to be impeached if the full House of Representatives backs the charges -- also renewed his familiar claim on Twitter that he is the victim of a “WITCH HUNT!”
“Ridiculous, and he knows that is not true,” Trump tweeted.
Separately, White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham called the impeachment articles a “partisan, gratuitous, and pathetic attempt to overthrow the Trump Administration and the results of the 2016 election.” (AFP)
