Bill Press: Democrats Will Impeach Trump on Day One If They Retake the House

"It will be day one of the new Congress, I think, if Democrats take control."

Liberal political commentator Bill Press said that Democrats would move to impeach President Trump on day one if they are successful in retaking the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections during an interview alongside billionaire environmentalist and Democratic donor Tom Steyer on Tuesday.

USA Today‘s Susan Page asked Steyer what he thought the odds were that Democrats would impeach Trump if they retake the House in November.

Page expressed her belief that the current Republican-controlled House would not move to impeach Trump.

“There’s an implication that there are no events that occur between today and November 6th, which is Election Day, that are so heinous that everybody, Democrat, Republican, and Independent, decides that is just unacceptable. That is far from a zero percent chance,” Steyer said taking umbrage with Page’s premise.

“I really admire what Tom is doing. I [take] a more pragmatic approach to this, which is with Susan. I do think there’s zero chance that this group of Republicans that now control the House will initiate an impeachment hearing,” Press said.

Press then discussed the Supreme Court decision regarding Congressional Districts in Pennsylvania, which Press called, “extremely important,” to the makeup of Congress.

“What most influences the makeup of this Congress are the district lines drawn state by state and what the Supreme Court is saying in a state like Pennsylvania, which is 50/50, that to have 13 Republicans and 5 Democrats does not reflect the population of the state,” Press explained.

Press then said that states should put redistricting in the hands of retired judges, who he claims would draw nonpartisan lines.

“That’s extremely important, and that’s sort of, I think, a first step and necessary step to getting too down the road impeachment. And Susan, it will be day one of the new Congress, I think, if Democrats take control,” Press said.
