(AP) — President Donald Trump says the impeachment probe has been “very hard” on his family.

He made the comment while in Louisiana for a rally on Thursday as he tried to energize voters to get out and cast a ballot for Republican gubernatorial candidate Eddie Rispone.

Rispone is trying to defeat Democratic incumbent John Bel Edwards in Saturday’s election.

Trump lashed out at Democratic investigators and at what he called a “deranged impeachment witch hunt.”

While arguing it was a political boon for his reelection, he acknowledged for the first time a personal toll from the impeachment process.

Trump repeated his denials of wrongdoing in his dealings with Ukraine.

He is accused of holding up congressional military aid to Ukraine while he pressured the country to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden’s son.
