US President Donald Trump has warned the target of an investigation into alleged abuse of power that his country is in "unprecedented risk."
The warning came in a video posted on Twitter as part of Trump's almost daily attacks against Democrats.
Democrats in Washington on Tuesday launched the first step in Trump's impeachment proceedings on suspicion that he had asked his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate his political rival Joe Biden, a rare move that caused an earthquake in Washington.
Speaker of the Democratic House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi announced an official inquiry, saying that Trump renounced his oath of office by seeking foreign help to undermine Biden's candidacy.
"Democrats want to take your guns, they want to take your health coverage, they want to take your votes, they want to take your freedom," Bush said at the White House.
"We will never let that happen, because our country 's fate is at stake like never before. It is very simple, they are trying to stop me because I am fighting for you. I will never let that happen."
In other tweets, Trump reiterated that the investigation to isolate him was a political "hunt". Trump said Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who heads a House of Representatives committee investigating the president's actions, had tarnished his reputation, saying he should resign from Congress.
Democrats vowed Friday to act quickly on Trump's dismissal, saying the evidence was clear that he had abused power through a telephone conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart and attempts to cover up wrongdoing.
In the first step, Democrats chairing committees in the House of Representatives on Friday demanded US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is close to Trump, to provide them with documents on the Ukraine issue in order to "speed up" the investigation to isolate the president.
In a statement to the heads of foreign committees, intelligence and supervision of the executive branch, headed it to Pompeo, that " the refusal to comply with this claim would constitute evidence of the obstruction of the achievement of the House of Representatives in this rare action against a US president.
