2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris pushed fellow lawmakers to start the impeachment process of Donald Trump, The Daily Beast reports. On Monday, she appeared at a CNN town-hall forum held in New Hampshire and supported fellow Democratic candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren's call for impeachment proceedings in the wake of the Mueller report release.
“I think we have very good reason that there is an investigation that has been conducted that has produced evidence that tells us that this president and his administration have engaged in obstruction of justice,” Harris said. “I believe Congress should take the steps toward impeachment.”
Fellow Democrat and rival Pete Buttigieg stated that Trump has “made it pretty clear that he deserves impeachment but said that he will “leave it to the House and the Senate to figure that out.”
Senator Amy Klobuchar was even more hesitant on impeaching Trump, and Senator Bernie Sanders expressed worry that the impeachment process would distract voters from other Democratic efforts leading up to the 2020 election.
