Senator Bernie Sanders Discusses Trump Impeachment During Latest Interview

On Friday, Senator Bernie Sanders was interviewed on The Intercept’s podcast “Deconstructed.”

 

During the interview, Sanders discussed the possible repercussions that would occur if President Trump decides to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

 

“I've been very reluctant to talk about impeachment until we have all the information coming in from the investigation. But that would be a major, major, major obstruction of justice. That would be an impeachable offense in my view,” Sanders said.

 

Earlier this week, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made similar comments.

 

When asked the same question about Trump, Graham said it would “probably” be an impeachable offense.

 

“I think what the president will have done is stopped an investigation in whether or not his campaign colluded with the Russians, what effect the Russians had on the 2016 campaign. I can’t see it being anything other than a corrupt purpose,” Graham added.

 

President Trump has tweeted about Robert Mueller and the ongoing Russia Investigation several times this week.

 

“Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added...does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!” Trump wrote on Sunday.

 

The next day, Trump added, “A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest!”
