House Democrats are moving forward on an impeachment inquiry against President Trump. The latest fuel for this effort are allegations that Trump asked the president of Ukraine to re-open an investigation into Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden.
Trump says he will release the unredacted transcript of his call with President Volodymyr Zelensky. Trump says he never threatened to cut or stop aid to Ukraine if his request was denied. Zelensky says he did not feel undue pressure to investigate Biden. Democrats say impeachment is warranted even if there was no quid pro quo involved.
Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy tells us why the exact details of the call don’t really matter when it comes to impeachment and why it doesn’t matter whether Trump broke the law. He also explains why Democrats may pay a heavy political price for going down this road when there’s virtually no chance the U.S. Senate would ever remove Trump from office.
