Wasserman Schultz: Democrats Should ‘Absolutely Not’ Stop Fundraising Off Impeachment
Wasserman Schultz: Democrats Should ‘Absolutely Not’ Stop Fundraising Off Impeachment (RealClearPolitics)
ALEX WAGNER, MSNBC: There has been some criticism directed towards Democrats and Democratic organizations that they have overreached on the issue of impeachment and they have overfundraised. By one count, there were 21 e-mails sent to fundraise off the notion of impeaching the president. Do you think that the Democrats have overstepped?
REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: Absolutely not. I think that it's very clear that it's quite possible this lawsuit against the president of the United States for doing his job is a prelude to the potential for impeachment. The third highest ranking Republican in the House of Representatives refused to take it off the table this past Sunday when directly asked on Fox News whether or not he would support impeachment and whether they will pursue it. No less than five to six -- I probably lost count how many Republicans in Congress have said they should pursue impeaching President Obama. So not only are we not overreaching but we're making sure the American people understand exactly where the Republicans, who are running the House of Representatives, priorities are. They certainly are not where Americans' priorities are and certainly don't have Americans' back.
