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?”
