Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro of Texas said in an interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber that if the reports of Donald Trump’s draft letter firing former FBI Director James Comey are true, then there could already be enough evidence that could get the president impeached.
Castro said during the interview that the House Intelligence Committee has yet to see the letter, but if reports about it proving Trump fired Comey to meddle in the Russia investigation are true then Congress can start the impeachment process.
“I said early on that if President Trump fired Comey [to kill the Russia probe], then that is grounds to start impeachment proceedings,” Castro said. “If he fires Mueller for a similar reason, to get rid of the Russia investigation, or because he thinks that it will accomplish that, those are grounds to start impeachment proceedings.”
