Harris says Congress should take steps toward impeaching Trump
Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) said Monday that the House should take steps toward impeaching President Trump, saying she believes that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report revealed evidence of obstruction of justice.
“We have very good reason to believe that there is an investigation that has been conducted which has produced evidence that tells us that this president and his administration engaged in obstruction of justice. I believe Congress should take the steps toward impeachment,” Harris said at a CNN town hall in New Hampshire.
