The House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry is “about to push this country to a civil war if they were to get their wishes,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, warned Thursday.

Speaking after the House voted along party lines to approve a measure establishing procedures for the impeachment process, Gohmert lamented the political divisiveness in the nation, The Hill reported.

“[I]f there’s one thing I don’t want to see in my lifetime, I don’t want to ever have participation in, it’s a civil war,” he said. “Some historian, I don’t remember who, said, guns are only involved in the last phase of a civil war."

He also dismissed Thursday’s House vote, saying it “didn’t do so much,” asserting the House will “not end up having a vote in this chamber on whether or not to actually impeach President [Donald] Trump because if that happens, it goes to the Senate.”

And in the Senate, he predicted, it would get a “slam dunk down” on the basis of “massive failure of due process, as well as no evidence, no direct evidence of any wrongdoing.”

The fear of a civil war was also noted in a Georgetown University poll.

In the survey released last week, 67% of respondents said they fear that the United States is on the verge of a “civil war.”
