RNC Spokesperson: If Democrats Retake the House, They Will Impeach Trump

"We do think that losing the House puts that at risk, and puts that in play," McEnany said, about Democrats impeaching President Trump.

Republican National Committee (RNC) spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said Thursday that if Democrats successfully retake the House after the 2018 midterm election they will move to impeach President Trump.

McEnany made the comments during an interview with Hill.TV’s Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton.

“What makes me nervous is obviously the House. We don’t want to lose the House. We recognize that if we lose the House, there are Democrats who have talked impeachment even though it’s a bogus, baseless theory with no grounding in truth. We do think that losing the House puts that at risk, and puts that in play,” McEnany said.

House Democrats have brought forward articles of impeachment against Trump twice since Trump assumed office in January 2017, and billionaire Democratic donor Tom Steyer has pledged to spend $40 million on his campaign to impeach Trump.

“Historically we know that the sitting party in power loses seats. It happened to President Obama, but as we know, and as our chairwoman says, we have to defy history,” McEnany added according to The Hill. “So what keeps me up is the fact that history is against us despite all of the great signs we see out there in the economy and elsewhere.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who will likely be speaker of the House if Democrats are successful in the upcoming midterm elections, has warned fellow Democrats against campaigning on impeachment, “saying it would end up harming the party before the midterm elections.”
