President Donald Trump doubled down on Tuesday on the incendiary rhetoric that incited the Capitol riot, warning darkly that it was dangerous to the United States for him to be impeached for his conduct.

"In his comments before departing for Texas on Tuesday, Trump again used the type of language that critics say fueled the mob, calling the planned impeachment by the Democratic-led House "really a continuation of the greatest witch hunt in politics."

"It's ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous," Trump said in his first comments to the media since the riot, which killed a Capitol police officer and left at least four other people dead.

"This impeachment is causing tremendous anger, and you're doing it, and it's really a terrible thing that they're doing," Trump said, apparently blaming reporters for his looming impeachment.

"For [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi and [Senate Democratic leader] Chuck Schumer to continue on this path, I think it's causing tremendous danger to our country, and it's causing tremendous anger," he said."

... dangerous to the United States for him to be impeached for his conduct. ...

With his L'Etat C'est Moi view of the Country, of course, Pres Trump would think it would be bad for the Country if he were impeached.

But it is interesting that this seems to be the sole defense he and his supporters proffer for not impeaching him.

The man may be psychotic.

The next time he tries to kill you, Mr. Pence, he may succeed.

Certainly not incitement here. Nope. He's not threatening a thing!

That POS never concedes defeat. He'll always double, triple, and then quadruple down.

Did you know Trumpy had a family coat of arms made many years ago in Scotland and the motto was 'Never Concede'?

FFS... there are hundreds, thousands, of examples why this lunatic was never fit for office. We're a country of complete fools.

Now he says impeachment of himself is dangerous for the country but did nothing at all when insurrectionists were invading the capital looking to hang Pence and kidnap or just kill Pelosi?
He should leave the White House and go live in an insane asylum.
