Former President Donald Trump on Sunday said that he "became worse" after being impeached twice during his tenure in office.

While speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, the former president relayed a litany of grievances to many of his most ardent supporters.

Trump described how Bill Barr, his former attorney general, faced calls to be impeached last year.

Last October, two private ethics groups asked the House to start impeachment proceedings against the attorney general, arguing that Barr was working to enable the former president's political objectives.

In his speech, Trump said that Barr "became a different man" after the calls for impeachment, while he "didn't become different" after the House impeached him for his role in the Ukraine scandal and his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

"He became a different man when the Democrats viciously stated that they wanted to impeach him," the former president said. "They went wild. We want to impeach him. We're gonna impeach Bill Barr. We're gonna impeach him. He became different."

He emphasized: "I didn't become different. I got impeached twice. I became worse."

The crowd loved Trump's proclamation, loudly applauding him.

Trump was the first president in US history to be impeached twice, in December 2019 and again in January 2021.

In both instances, the former president was acquitted by the Senate.

The upper chamber failed to reach the two-thirds threshold to find him guilty of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress in connection with his dealings in Ukraine, and was unable to convict him of incitement of insurrection regarding the deadly Capitol riot.

After his second Senate acquittal in February, Trump lamented the impeachment effort as "yet another phase of the greatest witch hunt in the history of our Country."

"It is a sad commentary on our times that one political party in America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law enforcement, cheer mobs, excuse rioters, and transform justice into a tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and suppress all people and viewpoints with whom or which they disagree," he wrote in a statement.

Trump has not yet announced if he will seek the GOP presidential nomination in 2024, but he has committed to helping Republicans win back control of Congress in the 2022 midterm elections.
