The mounting White House scandals have led some lawmakers to openly discuss impeaching President Trump. On Monday, Texas Democratic Congressmember Al Green said Trump should be removed from office for obstructing the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Congressmembers Maxine Waters of California, Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, Keith Ellison of Minnesota and other House Democrats have also raised the possibility of impeachment—as has Maine independent Senator Angus King, who spoke Thursday evening with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
Wolf Blitzer: "If these allegations, Senator, are true, are we getting closer and closer to the possibility of yet another impeachment process?"
Sen. Angus King: "Reluctantly, Wolf, I have to say yes, simply because obstruction of justice is such a serious offense."
