Joaquín Castro: Trump Should Be Impeached, If Reports Are True

Castro believes that President Trump obstructed justice and that is impeachable.

Rep. Joaquín Castro (D-TX) added his name to the growing list of elected officials that think President Trump should be impeached during an interview on Tuesday.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes asked Castro whether the New York Times report – that claims President Trump asked the FBI Director Comey to stop his investigation into Michael Flynn – amounts to obstruction of justice, and what that means.

Castro informed Hayes that he thinks this was, indeed, obstruction of justice, if the report is true.

“It means if the evidence bears out that there was obstruction of justice, I think you likely will see the Congress go down the road of impeachment,” Castro asked.

Hayes asked Castro if believes that.

“I do,” replied Castro.

Later in the interview, Hayes wanted to make sure that Castro was saying President Trump should be impeached if the New York Times report turns out to be true.

Again, Castro told Hayes that he believes Congress will move to impeach the president if the New York Times report turns out to be true.
