Clinton: We Don’t Yet Have Enough Information to Impeach Trump

“We have a pretty good idea of what the potential charges could be in the articles of impeachment, but we don’t yet have enough information to make that conclusion…”

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton didn’t seem to think the House should start impeachment proceedings against President Trump just yet, saying during an interview on MSNBC on Wednesday, “We don’t yet have enough information.”

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow asked Clinton whether she was concerned about House Democrats’ attempts to impeach Trump potentially backfiring and handing him four more years in the White House.

“I don’t worry if it’s done right. By that I mean – as I argued in that op-ed – you have to continue with your agenda, and that’s exactly what the House is doing. Nancy Pelosi understands that completely,” Clinton said.

“At the same time, though, you’ve got to educate the American public because the whole point behind Barr’s four-page summary was to obfuscate, was to try to create in the minds of Americans that, ‘Hey, nothing here, don’t bother, we’re moving on,'” Clinton said. “And we know that’s not the case now. And obviously, Bob Mueller has in his own way spoken out for the first time about that.”

“So, there do need to be hearings, and the Judiciary Committee is not the only one that is investigating this administration, and there don’t have to be impeachment hearings. That’s not where they are [investigating],” Clinton said. “There is a whole lot of important material to be explored. So, you have to do it in a way that creates a narrative. What is it you’re finding out? Where does it lead? But if it leads to the conclusion that this president has committed high crimes and misdemeanors, that’s what should motivate the Congress to act.”

“It may not lead there. And we don’t know that. We have a pretty good idea of what the potential charges could be in the articles of impeachment, but we don’t yet have enough information to make that conclusion,” Clinton said. “But, if we don’t see the House proceeding in that way, I think that will be a failure to discharge their responsibilities.”
