Rep.-elect Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) spoke to CNN about a possible attempt impeach President Trump once the Democrats retain House majority. She added that impeachment “has always been on the table.”
“I think impeachment has always been on the table,” Pressley stated. “And the fact that we have a Democratic majority means we can offer that checks and that balance. Many of the things we have been talking about in our caucuses have included oversight and how important it is that not only we are providing and offering that oversight as a body and that accountability, but also that we are intentional about moving the country forward.”
CNN’s Alisyn Camerota continued to ask Pressley if she will push for an impeachment.
“Impeachment has always been on the table,” Pressley stressed. “Is that something I’m leading with or leaning on at this time? No, because I think there are a lot of other things we can address in the space of oversight and accountability right now.”
