GOP Lawmaker Admits Trump Will Be Impeached If Dems Take Control Of House
Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy (R) admitted on Friday that Donald Trump’s days in the White House are numbered if Democrats manage to take control of the House.
During an interview with Milwaukee News/Talk 1130 WISN‘s Dan O’Donnell, Duffy said that Democrats will support Trump’s impeachment and it will happen if the party defeats enough Republicans in November.
“Democrat candidates might be sketchy about admitting that, especially in more 50-50 seats, but of course they’re going to impeach Donald Trump,” Duffy said. “Do you think that MSNBC or CNN would allow for anything less? And by the way, there aren’t that many Blue Dog Democrats left in Congress. They are radical leftists, socialist Democrats. They are like [Minority leader] Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). They are far-left people.”
“That’s who’s winning their primaries,” he added. “Do you think that the far-left ‘Resist’ movement base of the Democrat Party would accept anything other than impeachment?”
Late last year 58 Democrats voted to begin the impeachment proceedings against Trump.
Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C), the third-ranking Democrat in the House and a CBC member, is the highest ranking lawmaker to back impeachment.
“We thought that it was necessary for us to demonstrate, as members of the Congress, our displeasure with the president,” Clyburn said in January.
