Drake tweeted late Tuesday that he planned to buy an AR-15 rifle “because if you impeach MY PRESIDENT this way, YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER CIVAL WAR!!! #MAGA2020,” according to a copy of the tweet obtained by ESPN.

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred said Wednesday the League is looking into deleted tweets posted by umpire Rob Drake.

Drake claimed he would purchase an AR-15 and prepare for a Civil War if Trump gets impeached. He also posted a wing nut talking point about hearing held in secrecy without a vote.

Drake deactivated his account Wednesday. He did not return phone and text messages.

Joe West, the president of the Major League Baseball Umpires Association, declined comment when reached by phone.

ESPN:

“I will be buying an AR-15 tomorrow, because if you impeach MY PRESIDENT this way, YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER CIVAL WAR!!! #MAGA2020”

“You can’t do an impeachment inquiry from the basement of Capital Hill without even a vote! What is going on in this country?”
