Booker: Congress Has ‘Moral Obligation’ to Impeach Trump

Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, Sen. Cory Booker said Congress has a “moral obligation” to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

“I feel like we have a moral obligation now to investigate this president. Impeachment proceedings will give us more legal leverage to be able to get the information Congress needs to get to the bottom of what his administration has done while they’re in office,” Booker said.

Asked why he favors impeachment, Booker said, “It was a few weeks of seeing a president who wants to undermine constitutional intent and say he’s above the law… This president is not above the law. He should not be able to stop the checks and balances on the executive.”
