Former President Bill Clinton offered unsolicited advice to Donald Trump on how to handle the ongoing Democrat impeachment inquiry.
Clinton, during a phone interview with CNN’s Jacob Tapper, suggested the President needs to leave legal matters to the people he’s hired to handle them and focus on his administration’s agenda.
“My message would be, look, you got hired to do a job,” he said. “You don’t get the days back you blow off. Every day is an opportunity to make something good happen.”
Clinton went on to suggest Trump pivot his attention to the American people.
“And I would say, ‘I’ve got lawyers and staff people handling this impeachment inquiry, and they should just have at it,'” he continued. “Meanwhile, I’m going to work for the American people. That’s what I would do.”

Working With Democrats
Working for the American people, of course, means working with Democrats on passing gun control legislation. Not implementing your own agenda, Mr. President.
At least in Clinton’s mind, where living the mantra of ‘never let a crisis go to waste’ looms large.
The Democrat suggested working on gun control legislation by capitalizing on this week’s school shooting in California.
“If you’re just worried about the naked politics, it’s at least a wash,” Clinton said regarding an assault weapons ban. “People should instead do what’s right for the children.”
Trump has consistently said that the perpetual impeachment hoaxes being pushed by Democrats in Congress have prevented him from working on bipartisan legislation for the American people.
Attorney General William Barr admitted that gun legislation has been “sidetracked because of the impeachment process on the Hill.”
“That’s just an excuse,” responded Clinton.

There really is no better source of advice on impeachment than Bill Clinton. He was, after all, impeached on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice in 1998.
Nearly every Democrat player in today’s impeachment inquiry stood steadfastly behind Clinton during the process, calling the Republican effort a witch hunt, despite his very provable crimes.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi argued at the time that her Republican colleagues were pushing impeachment because they “are paralyzed with hatred of President Clinton.”
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler suggested that impeachment is an “undoing of a national election” designed to tell American voters that their choice for President “must be set aside.”
Now they’re doing exactly what they accused Republicans of doing years ago.
