Watch: Beto O’Rourke Just Put Trump In A Corner With Town Hall Response On Impeachment

During Thursday night’s CNN town hall, which Republican Senator Ted Cruz chose to decline an invitation to, Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke was asked about impeaching Donald Trump and if he would go ahead with the proceedings if he were to win in the upcoming midterm elections.

In response, O’Rourke used the words of conservative columnist George Will to bring up a case for impeaching Trump.

“Let me put it this way,” he began again. “There may be an open question as to whether the president, then the candidate, sought to collude with the Russian government in 2016, but to quote George Will, very conservative columnist, when we saw him on that stage in Helsinki defending Vladimir Putin, the head of the country that attacked our democracy in 2016, instead of this country, and its citizens and this amazing democracy, that was collusion in action.”

He went on to detail what he thinks is enough evidence to bring Trump to trial for impeachment.

“Ultimately, however, Dana, this is a political question,” he explained. “A Republican colleague of mine in the House will have to come before an audience like this and explain to her constituents or his constituents how they just voted to impeach the president of their own party, how they put their country ahead of their career or their next election or the politics of the moment,” O’Rourke said. “The best course to get there so that every member has all the facts and that they are compelling enough to do the right thing is to allow the full Independence and integrity of the Bob Mueller investigation. “

“As you know, under the Constitution, as a member of the Senate, it’s a far different bar. That is a trial with my colleagues where we look at the facts and I would not prejudge the outcome of that trial,” O’Rourke added. “All I am saying is that there is enough there and I think I laid out the case in both the collusion with a foreign power and the effort to obstruct justice going forward.”
