Plans for Impeachment? Latest Trump Tweets Fuel Democrat Dreams of Defeating the President
- A fresh round oftweets from the president
fueling the conversation surrounding
the ongoing Russia investigation.
Fake news reporting, acomplete fabrication,
that I am concerned aboutthe meeting my wonderful son,
Donald, had in Trump Tower.
This was a meeting to get information
on an opponent, totally legal
and done all the timein politics he tweeted.
It confirms the 2016meeting in Trump Tower
was about gathering opposition research
from a Russian lawyer,not primarily adoption
as previously stated.
Trump's lawyer, Jay Sekulowsays that isn't a crime.
- The question is, what law, statute,
or rule or regulation has been violated
and nobody's pointed to one.
- [Amber] As to thecharges by some Democrats
that the president's tweet last week
calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions
to stop the investigationis obstruction of justice.
Sekulow says, not so fast.
- Obstruction of justiceby tweet is absurd.
At the end of the day this isall about The Constitution.
It's all about ArticleII and that would be
the question if it went to court
that would be the question.
- [Amber] While President Trump's lawyers
say he wants to sit downwith the special counsel,
they've advised againstit leaving the question
for Robert Mueller's team, tosubpoena or not to subpoena.
- A subpoena for livetestimony has never been tested
in court as to a Presidentof the United States
and there's a lot of language, articles
and precedent againstthat but if that decision
is made we'll, we'll prepareto handle it in court.
- [Amber] While the president is calling
for the investigation toend Senator Marco Rubio says
it must continue forthe good of the nation.
- I believe it is in the bestinterest of the president
and of the United States of America
and the American peoplefor that investigation
to run the course for allthe truth to come out.
If there was evidence,strong evidence of collusion
I guarantee you it wouldhave been leaked by now.
- [Amber] Meanwhile visions of a blue wave
come midterm elections have some Democrats
talking impeachment again.
- Two in three Democraticvoters say Democrats,
if they win the house,should begin the process
of impeaching President Trump.
That's according to a recent poll.
Would you support that?
- Yeah, if the groundsare there, then that a,
then we should proceed.
- But others is theparty caution Democrats
need to be careful beforeinvoking, the I word.
