Ivanka Trump Reacts to Impeachment Vote With Quote From Thomas Jefferson

Ivanka Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump, posted a quote from Founding Father and third President Thomas Jefferson following the Houses vote on an impeachment inquiry resolution.

The Jefferson quote she shared reads: “Surrounded by enemies and spies catching and perverting every word that falls from my lips or flows from my pen, and inventing where facts fail them.” Jefferson wrote a letter while he was in Washington before sending it to his daughter, Martha Randolph, in February 1801.

“Some things never change, dad!” Ivanka wrote, referring to her father.

The statement comes after Democrats pushed a package of ground rules through a divided House in their impeachment inquiry into Trump.

The tally was 232-196, with all Republicans against the resolution and just two Democratic defectors joining them: freshman Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-N.J.) and Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) voted against the measure.

The vote drew a familiar Twitter statement from Trump: “The greatest Witch Hunt in American History!”

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democrats are embarking on “unhinged obsession with this illegitimate impeachment proceeding.”
