Pastor Robert Jeffress said he is “afraid” impeachment “will cause a Civil War-like fracture in this nation from which this country will never heal.”

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Monday to attack the whistleblower at the center of the growing Ukraine scandal and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff after promoting comments from a supportive pastor who told Fox News that the president’s impeachment would lead to a “Civil War-like fracture in this nation.”
Trump’s comments come as he faces an impeachment inquiry in the House over his discussions with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, which involved Trump asking his foreign counterpart to probe former Vice President Joe Biden’s family. The Trump administration, around the same time as that July conversation, placed a hold on hundreds of millions in Ukrainian military aid, only to release it earlier this month.
