President Donald Trump committed “sedition” with his tweet threatening a civil war if he’s impeached, according to retired Army Lt. Col. Ralph Peters.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked Peters during an interview Monday night about his reaction to Trump’s tweet, which came in response to House Democrats opening an impeachment inquiry.

“One word, sedition,” said Peters, a former Fox News analyst. “Trump is inciting violence against the legitimate government of the United States and the constitutional order. And, Anderson, that is a grave crime. You can argue about the meaning of treason, what constitutes it, what doesn’t–sedition is very clear cut.”

He added, “Trump, he’s afraid. He’s a frightened, frightened man. If he loses the election and it’s not a forgone conclusion that he will but if he does, he’ll face the rest of his life in courtrooms, perhaps in prison.

“You see Republicans on Capitol Hill just cowering, just cowering, afraid of Donald Trump, this bloated old charlatan who never served in any capacity and all these Republican patriots who served, they’re running to make excuses for him, cringing. I know my views are strong on this,” Peters said.

“With this president, it’s always been said everything is transactional, relationships are transactional,” Cooper added.

“It’s Trump is all about Trump is all about Trump,” Peters said. “And I really feel sorry for the people who voted for him who convinced themselves that this man is a patriot.”
