Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) said that President Trump’s impeachment was “inevitable” during a Monday interview on CNN.

CNN’s Erin Burnett asked Yarmuth about Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) remarks that Trump was not worth impeachment during an interview with the Washington Post, and what Yarmuth’s response to Pelosi statement was, given his previous support for impeachment.

“I think there’s a lot of validity in what Nancy said, and I respect that and ultimately it’s going to be her call,” Yarmuth said. “I have a little bit [of a] different perspective that if you think the president has committed impeachable offenses, which I do.”

Yarmuth then cited his belief that Trump had committed a crime while in office.

“Impeachment means nothing if you don’t use the power and begin the process. To me, it’s not a question of whether, it’s a question of when, and probably right now is not the right time, but I think at some point it’s going to be inevitable,” Yarmuth said.
