MSNBC’s O’Donnell Says Trump ‘Must Be Impeached’
MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell called for President Trump’s impeachment on his show Friday night, saying the filings from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office justify an impeachment.
“If Donald Trump lost the election and federal prosecutors were pursuing this same case, he would be pursuing exactly the same consequences as Michael Cohen,” O’Donnell said on the Last Word. “He would be charged with exactly the same two campaign finance violation crimes for arranging secret payments to two women during the campaign to buy their silence about their sexual affairs with Donald Trump.
“And so if history means anything in the Trump era, if precedent means anything in the Trump era, Donald Trump will be, must be, impeached because of the crimes prosecutors say he committed in the Michael Cohen case,” he added.
