Trump vows SCOTUS fight over any impeachment

President Donald Trump on Wednesday pushed back against any possible impeachment efforts by congressional Democrats, promising to take the fight to the Supreme Court, even though Congress has the constitutional power to impeach.

The president took to Twitter, saying, "If the partisan Dems ever tried to Impeach, I would first head to the U.S. Supreme Court." It's unknown how that would happen though.

The U.S. Constitution states Congress has the "sole power" of impeachment.

The tweet comes as Democrats debate how to move forward after special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe findings were released last week.

Some Democrats, like Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Maxine Waters, want to move for impeachment, while a group led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remains cautious.

Mueller's 449-page report cleared Trump of conspiring with Russia in the 2016 election but it built a case that Trump had obstructed justice, leaving any further action up to Congress.
