President Trump went after Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.) Saturday evening after Dingell appeared on Fox News and said that she’s leaning towards voting yes on the articles of impeachment.

“The last time I spoke to Debbie Dingell was her call thanking me for granting top memorial and funeral service honors for her then just departed husband, long time Congressman John Dingell,” Trump tweeted.

“Now I watch her ripping me as part of the Democrats Impeachment Hoax. Really pathetic!,” he added.

In an interview with Fox News’ Leland Vittert, Dingell said that she’s leaning towards voting yes, but added “anybody who thinks this is a great day for our country, it is a very sad day for our country and I don’t want to impeach him.” 

Dingell also responded to Trump’s Twitter attack, tweeting “I’ve always said I’ll work with President Trump when he wants to help hard-working men and women, but I’ll also work to hold this Administration accountable.”

Dingell’s late husband, John Dingell was the longest-serving Congressman in American history, representing Michigan for nearly 60 years. Dingell retired from the House in 2015 and died earlier this year. Debbie Dingell won Michigan’s 12th Congressional District seat that her husband had previously held in 2015.
