LANSING, Mich. — President Donald Trump took to Twitter Wednesday afternoon to express more frustration about the impeachment inquiry started by House Democrats.

In a tweet, President Trump used a swear word to describe the inquiry. Then, in a news conference he claimed, without evidence, that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff helped write the whistle-blower compliant.

Michigan Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin spoke out on the topic Wednesday afternoon at a restaurant in East Lansing.

"I think that the president's comments are out of line. I think they contradict the spirit and the letter of the whistle-blower legislation, and I think they are deeply, deeply unhelpful," Slotkin said.

Representative Slotkin is among seven congressional democrats who wrote a joint OP-ED in the Washington Post last week in support of the impeachment inquiry.

Questions for the congresswoman were unfortunately cut short by the East Lansing Fire Marshal.

The turnout at the Grand Traverse Pie Company surpassed the building's allowed capacity, shutting down the Q&A.
