On Possibility of Impeachment, US President Says...

Fox News's Ainsley Earhardt was given an interview with the 45th President, and asked him a total of 18 questions.  Asked if he believes that Democrats would try to impeach him, if they win back control of the Congress in the 2018 mid-term elections, the President replied, "If I ever got impeached, I think the market would crash, I think everybody would be very poor.  You would see numbers that you wouldn't believe.  ...  You know, I guess it says something like high crimes and all -- I don't know how you can impeach somebody who has done a great job."
  During the interview, which aired on television this morning, the President said that he would give himself an "A+" if asked to grade his performance in office so far, citing his successful appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court and predicting that Brett Kavanaugh, his second pick, will be confirmed quickly, as well.  "I give myself an A+. I don't think any President has ever done what I have done."
  The President questioned how, and why, he could be impeached when he's made such huge strides improving economic conditions for everyone in the United States.  "We haven't even been two years.  Biggest tax cuts in history. Soon to be two unbelievable Supreme Court justices; I'm sure that Justice Kavanaugh will be approved.  Justice Gorsuch has been a star.  You look at all the things we have done with regulations, the economy is the best it has ever been in history.  The only thing I'm doing badly in is the press doesn't cover me fairly."
  The President also stated, during the interview, in regards to Michael Cohen's guilty plea in New York on Tuesday afternoon, that the long-standing legal practice of flipping a witness "almost ought to be illegal."

 Just as a note, the first New York Congressman to endorse the 45th President as a candidate has been charged with insider trading; and the second one to endorse him, from California, has just been charged with using campaign donations for personal expenses for both himself and his family.
 Not to mention that the EPA, at the President's direction, has just cancelled the carbon dioxide emission standards set by President Obama - which the EPA cheerfully acknowledges will cause at least 1,400 more deaths per year (on average) in the US for people with breathing problems, such as COPD and asthma.
