Cummings: House May Consider Impeachment ‘Very Soon,’ But Not Yet


Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., the chair of the House Oversight Committee, said Friday that the House may weight impeaching President Donald Trump, but they must first wait to get the full picture of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Cummings said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Trump’s conduct, according to the report, was “at least 100 times worse” than former President Bill Clinton’s behavior, which led to impeachment proceedings.

“We’ve got to go against this. We’ve got to expose it,” the congressman said. “A lot of people keep asking about the question of impeachment. We may very well come to that very soon, but right now let’s make sure we understand what Mueller was doing, understand what Barr was doing, and see the report in an unredacted form and all of the underlying documents.”

Cummings’ comment comes after House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said that “impeachment is not worthwhile at this point.”
