Cummings Implies There Will Come a Time When President Trump Can Be Impeached

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) indicated, during an interview on Friday, that a may come when Congress will have to make a decision whether to impeach President Trump.

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell asked Cummings if he agrees with Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-CA) refusal to work with the Trump administration, and Waters’ continued calls for Trump’s impeachment.

Cummings explained to Mitchell that, as the ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, it is his job to assist in conducting a fair investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.

Cummings went on to say that he also has to represent his constituents, which means he will need to work with the Trump administration.

“Many of the things that Maxine Waters is talking about, she’s absolutely right. We are finding out more and more every day,” Cummings went on to tell Mitchell.

Cummings then implied that Congress would have to confront impeaching Trump soon, “There will come a time Andrea, where the truth will come in contact with these false statements made by Donald Trump, President Trump, and others. And then a judgment call will have to be made.”
