Top Democrats leak one thing that can impeach Trump

The comments came on Sunday days after Rep. Rashida Tlaib was recorded saying that Democrats would "impeach the motherf****r!” Although many top Democrat lawmakers have slated Tlaib’s rhetoric, the idea of impeachment still resonates among some powerful Democrats. Speaking on CBS Sunday Morning, Pelosi said that the information obtained from special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating allegations that Trump's campaign team colluded with Russia to sway the 2016 election in his favor, could begin the impeachment process. “That would be depending on what comes forth from the special counsel’s office,” Pelosi said. “If and when the time comes for impeachment, it will have to be something that has such a crescendo in a bipartisan way.” Now that Democrats have taken over the House this Congressional session, impeachment proceedings, which are coming from the lower chamber of Congress, might happen. However, the Senate, which is controlled by the Republicans at least until the 2020 presidential election, would need to support the move. “It has to be a bipartisan process,” Adam Schiff, a California Democrat and incoming chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said on CNN’s State of the Union. “The Republican senators, some of them are not on board — then all you have is a failed impeachment, and I don’t see how that benefits the Congress,” added Adam. Trump, who according to sources close to the White House saw impeachment as a “real possibility” when Democrats take over the House, warned that the people of America would revolt if he were impeached. "It’s hard to impeach somebody who hasn’t done anything wrong and who’s created the greatest economy in the history of our country,” Trump said during an interview with Reuters in the Oval Office of the White House last month. According to a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released to The Hill in December, almost 60 percent of American voters said Trump should be either impeached and removed from office or formally censured. The possibility of an impeachment increased after the Republican president’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to charges of bank fraud, tax fraud and violations of election campaign finance laws. Cohen's campaign finance law violations included paying hush money to women who Trump had alleged affairs with prior to the 2016 US presidential campaign.
