Dem Rep-Elect: It’s No Longer a Question of When Dems Impeach Trump, But How

"I think these investigations are going to be very revealing...we won't be having these conversations on whether to do it. But it's going to be when and how."

Rep-elect Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said that the question of impeaching President Trump will no longer be one of “if” for House Democrats in the coming months, but “when and how.”

CNN’s John Berman asked Omar about her support for impeaching Trump during an interview on Tuesday. During her congressional campaign, Omar made numerous statements in support of impeachment on the campaign trail.

“I mean, if this report comes out, and we keep having the breaking headlines every single day, I’m pretty sure that it’s going to call for itself,” Omar said. “We know that this president, this administration, every day has gone a little bit closer to being impeached.”

“I think these investigations are going to be very revealing in the next coming months, and we won’t be having these conversations on whether to do it. But it’s going to be when and how,” Omar continued.

Berman then asked Omar about House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s belief that House Democrats should focus on governing rather than impeachment when they take control of the House in January.

“Yes. We can walk and chew gum at the same time,” Omar responded.

“It’s important for us to recognize, yes, the American people want us to legislate. They want us to insist on furthering a set of values. But they also want us to resist and make sure that we exercise our oversight powers and hold this administration accountable,” Omar said.
