Michael Bennet: It Looks from the Mueller Report as Though Trump’s ‘Committed Impeachable Offenses’
MARGARET BRENNAN: Well Bob Mueller had an issue with context, I don’t know if he used the word false. But in- in terms of the Mueller report, it- it did make clear, as you have said in your personal view, that the president committed impeachable offenses. That sounds like you’re saying you support impeachment. What is the point of that process if it’s just going to be dead on arrival in a Republican controlled Senate?
SEN. BENNET: Well, I’ve said that I don’t- I- I’m not ready to say the president should be impeached. I said that he- I think it looks from the report as though he’s committed impeachable offenses. I think there is every reason why the investigation in the Congress should continue and then we should make an assessment of where it leads. You’re quite right that as long as the Republicans are in charge of the Senate and they are- want to bury their heads in the sand about what’s going on here that it’s unlikely that that process will go through all the way to the end, which is why I think Nancy Pelosi has wanted to say, let’s not jump to a conclusion on impeachment yet. Let’s let the process go forward and see where it takes us. And by the way, ultimately I think where it will take us is to replacing Donald Trump in 2020, which is what we need to do.
