Hugh Hewitt: Trump on 'Constitutional Thin Ice,' Risking Impeachment

(Yahoo News)

Conservative radio-talk show host Hugh Hewitt said Tuesday that President Donald Trump was on "constitutional thin ice" — facing possible impeachment if Democrats regain control of the House of Representatives in 2018.

"President Trump has to be aware of the constitutional thin ice on which he skates," Hewitt told Yahoo News host Katie Couric.

He was referring to the conflicts-of-interest that have already come to the fore since Trump inauguration on Friday.

"I think it would occur after midterms — and only if the House flips to the Democrats," Hewitt added. "So the potential is there, yes."

Trump has faced questions about potential conflicts of interest including over his hotel in Washington, D.C.

The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a lawsuit Monday alleging that Trump may be violating constitutional prohibitions against foreign leaders making gifts to U.S. officials.

"If you abuse power, if you do anything — you don’t have a lot of goodwill in the reservoir," Hewitt told Couric.

"He's beginning his presidency successfully in my view with a few, very bold initiatives, but with the highest negatives of any incoming president since Gallup kept track.

"That says to me: thin ice, move carefully."

On the flip side, Hewitt also told Newsmax TV Tuesday that Democrats were digging their own graves if they continued slamming Trump.

"If they want to stay in the extreme little corner that they've carved for themselves — and they may get a false positive out of the Washington march and the women's marches this past weekend — let them stay there," Hewitt told "The Steve Malzberg Show."
