Russian President, Vladimir Putin has dismissed the claim that President Donald Trump could be removed from office on the grounds that the Republican-dominated US Senate is unlikely to remove a representative of their own party from office.
The Russian president made the statement on Thursday, December 19, at his annual news conference in Moscow, The UK Independent reports.
Putin said that the impeachment of Trump by the US House of Representatives was based on fabricated charges and that the Democratic Party pursued impeachment for purely political reasons having lost the US presidential election. He predicted that the impeachment motion will be rejected by the Senate.
It was earlier reported that President Donald Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives of the United States of America over abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
