A Minnesota senator who is making a tilt for the Oval Office indicated she would not refrain from voting to convict the president on Dec. 1.
Presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) appears to have no qualms with ousting Donald Trump before he has a chance to stand for re-election at the 2020 general election.
Klobuchar revealed on national television she probably would not vote to acquit the incumbent president based on mounting evidence of no wrongdoing, even if the House Democrat-led impeachment investigation proceeds to a trial in the Senate.
“At this point, I don’t see that but I’m someone that wants to look at every single count,” Klobuchar told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I’ve made very clear–I think this is impeachable conduct.”
The remark came even though Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy once again announced Trump did not commit any wrongdoing.
“Breaking news: the president of Ukraine has just again announced that President Trump has done nothing wrong with respect to Ukraine and our interactions or calls,” the president said on Twitter. “If the radical left Democrats were sane, which they are not, it would be case over.”
Klobuchar recently raised eyebrows when she said referenced the upcoming election that the Democrats “cannot afford to screw this up,” if Trump is not impeached.
“If Donald Trump gets elected, shame on us,” Klobuchar said. “I mean that we need to bring our party together and bring with us independents and moderate Republicans, just like I’ve done in all my races where I’ve run in suburbs, rural, and suburban areas.”
She admitted the Democrats still have not found a front running candidate who can “actually bring people with us,” and pretentiously volunteered for the role.
“I am the only one on the debate stage that has led a ticket over and over again where I have brought in suburbs, rural areas, and urban areas in a big, big way,” she said. “Every time I’ve led a ticket, we flipped the statehouse in my state and I could do the same nationally, I think that matters.”
Klobuchar insists she will continue to push forward her candidacy and become the front running candidate for the Democratic Party.
“I think that experience of winning and knowing how to build that coalition matters,” she said. “That is the argument I’m going to keep making.”
Trump questioned the Democrats’ achievements since last being elected and what he described as the party’s excessive legal representation at the impeachment hearings.
“The do nothing Democrats get three constitutional lawyers for their impeachment hoax (they will need them), the Republicans get one,” the president said on Twitter. “Oh, that sounds fair.”
