Tammy Bruce: Impeachment push started because corruption matters to Trump

Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce said on Sunday that the House Democrats' impeachment push highlighted former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s suspicious ties to a Ukrainian gas company.

“The president, of course, is doing what he can --he’s keeping it in the news. This was, of course, all started because corruption mattered to [Trump,]” Bruce told, “The Next Revolution” with Steve Hilton. She discussed the famous phone call with Ukrainian Leader Volodymyr Zelensky, which launched of the Democrats' impeachment case.

“What was exactly happening when it comes to the international scene? How is it that all of these civil servants are getting filthy rich in the midst of this and somehow it was almost like it was coming down from the leprechauns somewhere.”

Bruce called Trump a disruptor of the system. Bruce said that the major threat remains and that the longer an outsider remains in the White House, the more corruption is at risk.

“What is it that has made these individuals so ferociously wanting to stop the nature of any change as though something might be found?”
