Trump Asks Followers to Pray for Him As House Prepares to Impeach

President Donald Trump is urging his followers to pray for him, as the House of Representatives prepares for a vote in which lawmakers are expected to make Trump the third president in history to be impeached.

The president fired off a series of tweets on Wednesday morning attacking his Democratic opponents and again dismissing the impeachment proceedings against him as a witch hunt and an assault on American democracy.

The House is expected to vote to impeach the president with a largely party-line vote. This will send Trump to trial in the Senate, where the Republican majority is expected to acquit him.

Trump appears resigned to the fact he will be impeached. He wrote on Twitter, "Can you believe that I will be impeached today by the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, AND I DID NOTHING WRONG!"

"A terrible Thing," the president continued. "Read the Transcripts. This should never happen to another President again. Say a PRAYER!"

The president issues daily condemnation of the impeachment effort. On Tuesday, Trump said the Democrats wanted to impeach him but that "I'm not worried!"

He then asked, "How can they do that and yet impeach a very successful (Economy Plus) President of the United States, who has done nothing wrong? These people are Crazy!"

Though Twitter remains Trump's primary attack platform, on Tuesday he sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accusing the Democrats of undermining democracy by attempting to impeach him.

"You have cheapened the importance of the very ugly word, impeachment!" Trump wrote. "By proceeding with your invalid impeachment, you are violating your oaths of office, you are breaking your allegiance to the Constitution, and you are declaring open war on American Democracy."

Trump told Pelosi he was writing the six-page letter "for the purpose of history and to put my thoughts on a permanent and indelible record. 100 years from now, when people look back at this affair, I want them to understand it, and learn from it, so that it can never happen to another president again."

The president often laments what he sees as unfair treatment by his political opponents, and in his letter to Pelosi claimed: "More due process was afforded to those accused in the Salem Witch Trials."

Trump added, "There are not many people who could have taken the punishment inflicted during this period of time, and yet done so much for the success of America and its citizens."
