CAMEROTA You previously pumped ░░░░░░░░ brakes on impeachment How ░░░░░░░░ you feel today HICKENLOOPER ░░░░░░░░ listening to Mueller and ░░░░░░░░ wanted to hear what ░░░░░░░░ had to say I ░░░░░░░░ of myself as an ░░░░░░░░ moderate but I think ░░░░░░░░ laid the responsibility clearly ░░░░░░░░ the doorstep of Congress ░░░░░░░░ think we have to ░░░░░░░░ an impeachment inquiry That ░░░░░░░░ t mean we ll ░░░░░░░░ President Trump tomorrow or ░░░░░░░░ ever but I think ░░░░░░░░ do have an obligation ░░░░░░░░ follow where the facts ░░░░░░░░ and we have to ░░░░░░░░ that I m not ░░░░░░░░ Mitch McConnell will never ░░░░░░░░ President Trump We have ░░░░░░░░ keep our eye on ░░░░░░░░ prize and recognize we ░░░░░░░░ to beat Trump at ░░░░░░░░ ballot box But at ░░░░░░░░ same time we have ░░░░░░░░ get the real facts ░░░░░░░░ what did happen CAMEROTA ░░░░░░░░ m sorry what changed ░░░░░░░░ you after you read ░░░░░░░░ reading the Mueller report ░░░░░░░░ hearing him yesterday HICKENLOOPER ░░░░░░░░ him actually say that ░░░░░░░░ there were a way ░░░░░░░░ could say there was ░░░░░░░░ criminal activity he would ░░░░░░░░ done that actually hearing ░░░░░░░░ say that rather than ░░░░░░░░ in the report But ░░░░░░░░ he was very direct ░░░░░░░░ this is the responsibility ░░░░░░░░ Congress This is their ░░░░░░░░ role And the way ░░░░░░░░ laid it out there ░░░░░░░░ pretty direct BERMAN I ░░░░░░░░ interested by the way ░░░░░░░░ framed your decision here ░░░░░░░░ re saying you are ░░░░░░░░ as an extreme moderate ░░░░░░░░ that the phrase you ░░░░░░░░ there That s the ░░░░░░░░ of Democrats that may ░░░░░░░░ the ones to pressure ░░░░░░░░ Pelosi here in the ░░░░░░░░ It s some 40 ░░░░░░░░ so Democrats who won ░░░░░░░░ Republican held districts Really ░░░░░░░░ few if none have ░░░░░░░░ forward in saying it ░░░░░░░░ time to impeach or ░░░░░░░░ the impeachment proceedings Do ░░░░░░░░ think your movement will ░░░░░░░░ any of them HICKENLOOPER ░░░░░░░░ don t know about ░░░░░░░░ but I think that ░░░░░░░░ an impeachment inquiry where ░░░░░░░░ do get the weight ░░░░░░░░ the inquiry behind the ░░░░░░░░ so that you really ░░░░░░░░ the real facts I ░░░░░░░░ that s critically important ░░░░░░░░ this point I look ░░░░░░░░ that as separate from ░░░░░░░░ actual impeachment proceedings where ░░░░░░░░ are actually trying to ░░░░░░░░ articles of impeachment and ░░░░░░░░ that BERMAN The first ░░░░░░░░ is to hold an ░░░░░░░░ inquiry HICKENLOOPER That s ░░░░░░░░ inquiry BERMAN Then the ░░░░░░░░ Committee would vote on ░░░░░░░░ of impeachment But formally ░░░░░░░░ an inquiry is an ░░░░░░░░ proceeding HICKENLOOPER Exactly BERMAN ░░░░░░░░ you re saying yes ░░░░░░░░ is the time HICKENLOOPER ░░░░░░░░ I think we need ░░░░░░░░ get the facts Just ░░░░░░░░ to bring forth the ░░░░░░░░ I think it would ░░░░░░░░ crazy not to do ░░░░░░░░ to be quite honest ░░░░░░░░ you We have to ░░░░░░░░ out and try and ░░░░░░░░ facts CAMEROTA Do you ░░░░░░░░ it could hurt Democrats ░░░░░░░░ 2020 HICKENLOOPER Again we ░░░░░░░░ go into it clear ░░░░░░░░ and recognize that Mitch ░░░░░░░░ is not going to ░░░░░░░░ President Trump We ve ░░░░░░░░ to beat Trump at ░░░░░░░░ ballot box and be ░░░░░░░░ focused on that CAMEROTA ░░░░░░░░ s what I mean ░░░░░░░░ voters be annoyed that ░░░░░░░░ are spending time on ░░░░░░░░ HICKENLOOPER I don t ░░░░░░░░ so I think voters ░░░░░░░░ most of the people ░░░░░░░░ talked to in Colorado ░░░░░░░░ New Hampshire they want ░░░░░░░░ facts Let s find ░░░░░░░░ what really happened It ░░░░░░░░ one thing to say ░░░░░░░░ the Trump campaign actually ░░░░░░░░ with a hostile power ░░░░░░░░ me that s breathtaking ░░░░░░░░ we just accept that ░░░░░░░░ s fine Let s ░░░░░░░░ what else is there ░░░░░░░░ Again running as a ░░░░░░░░ you don t see ░░░░░░░░ as a leftist position ░░░░░░░░ No I think trying ░░░░░░░░ get facts is within ░░░░░░░░ as a country it ░░░░░░░░ within America’s responsibility.”
