In a new interview, White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump says this week’s “purely partisan” impeachment of her father by the House of Representatives has “energized” him and “his 63 million-plus voters.”
“In fact, the only thing bipartisan was the vote against proceeding forward,” the 38-year-old first daughter tells CBS “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan in a teaser trailer release Thursday night. The full conversation will air Dec. 29.
Not a single Republican backed the impeachment of the president on either of two charges — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — in Wednesday’s vote, but a few Democrats sided with the GOP against the action.
Trump spoke a day after the House of Representatives voted to charge her father on Wednesday with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
