According to CNN, President Donald Trump blamed his counsel, Rude Giuliani, for his second impeachment on Wednesday.
According to the news network citing a source, the President has ordered people to stop paying for the lawyers’ legal fees.
CNN notes that while Trump’s advisors were not sure whether the President was serious regarding his directives, considering that after the events of his second impeachment, he was lashing out at almost all.
As the House of Representatives announced his impeachment on Wednesday, a week after he was accused of urging his supporters to mount a deadly assault on the US Capitol, Trump, who is the 45th President of the United States, became the first of them all to be impeached twice.
One White House adviser told CNN that “everybody’s angry at everyone” inside the White House, with the President being upset because he thinks people are not defending him enough.
“He’s in self-pity mode,” the source said, with Trump complaining he’s been under siege for five years and he views this latest impeachment as a continuation of that.”
But many people close to the President view the current situation as different than his first impeachment.
“His actions led to here, no one else,” the White House adviser said, adding, “He instigated a mob to charge on the Capitol building to stop the certification, he’s not going to find a lot of sympathetic Republicans.”
