Anyone who thought Donald J. Trump would be ‘humble’ after beating the House charges like Bill Clinton was dreaming…
THAT is NOT showman Trump…
Trump also used an early morning tweet to attack Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah), the only Republican to vote to convict him on an article of impeachment. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who launched the impeachment proceedings, is also scheduled to appear before reporters on Thursday….

“You have to understand, we first went through ‘Russia, Russia, Russia,'” he told a packed and rowdy audience in the East Room of the White House, alluding to allegations his 2016 campaign coordinated with Russia to interfere in that year’s election.
“It was all bullshit. We then went through the Mueller report,” he continued, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller’s yearslong probe into those allegations, in addition to whether Trump obstructed justice in the investigation.
