hey tards, dems said the same shit when clinton was impeached, that it was a coup

"Trump Calls It a 'Coup'; In 1998, Dems Supporting Bill Clinton Agreed Impeachment Effort Was a 'Coup'"

"In December 1998, as the Republican-led House of Representatives debated articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton for lying under oath and obstructing justice, numerous Democrats described the effort as a "coup."

Here are excerpts of various Democrats, some still serving in Congress, who denounced the Clinton impeachment as a "coup." Their comments can be found in the congressional record."

here is Maxine Waters calling the 98 clinton impeachment a coup:

And it is a coup d’etat when you seek to upset an election, to overturn an election without a broad consensus of the necessity for doing so against the majority of the American people.
