President Donald Trump vowed to challenge impeachment proceedings against him in the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) if Democrats in the House of Representatives decide to start such actions.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Trump reiterated that “angry Democrats” wrote the Mueller Report and he did not commit crimes. He added he will go first to the SCOTUS to stop the impeachment proceedings.

Under the U.S. Constitution, the House of Representatives has the sole power to impeach the President and other federal officials. The Senate is the only court for impeachment trials.
