Ivanka Trump quotes Jefferson on ‘enemies’ in Washington after impeachment vote

President Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump quoted Thomas Jefferson about being “surrounded by enemies and spies” in Washington, D.C., after the House voted to approve procedures for an impeachment inquiry into her father.

{mosads}Ivanka Trump tweeted the quote, which is from Jefferson’s letter to his daughter Martha describing the political capital of the U.S. The quote 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.”

She posted the quote along with the message, “Some things never change, dad!” 

The president’s daughter took to Twitter shortly after the resolution in the House passed in a 232-196 party-line vote.

Trump also posted on Twitter immediately after the vote, calling the impeachment inquiry the “Greatest Witch Hunt In American History.”

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham condemned the Democrats in a statement, saying they have an “unhinged obsession with this illegitimate impeachment proceeding.”
