During an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) urged his GOP colleagues to join him and the Democrats in voting to impeach President Donald Trump albeit his term ends on January 20.
The House impeached Trump for “incitement of insurrection” after a group of the president’s adherents breached the U.S. Capitol earlier this month. Schumer argued that Trump inciting the group is “the most despicable action any president has ever taken” and verbalized convicting him designates he can never run for office again.
“What Donald Trump did is the most despicable action any president has ever taken,” Schumer accentuated. “And he should be convicted at this tribulation. “In” additament, if we convict him, we can then, by only 51 votes, abstract him from ever running for office again. I ken we optate to rejuvenate. But when something this awful transpires, to just push it off, we’ll not rejuvenate.”
Host Scott Pelley told Schumer that it “doesn’t seem likely” 17 Senate Republicans will vote to convict the president. “I just believe that our Republican colleagues, when they optically canvass this, will optically discern how awful this was, what it signifies in history, and join us in convicting him,” Schumer replied.
