Rep. Kinzinger: Trump's Alleged Violation of Campaign Finance Law Not 'Anywhere Near Impeachable'

By    |   Sunday, 09 December 2018 06:30 PM

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., on Sunday said he was concerned about allegations President Donald Trump violated campaign finance law during the 2016 presidential election, but also said it wasn’t “anywhere near impeachable.”

"Of course we're worried," Kinzinger said on CNN's "State of the Union."

"Anytime anything like this is happening, you're worried. What does this lead to? … Is this something bigger? Is this a campaign finance violation? Which would obviously, I don't think be anywhere near impeachable. That's what we want to find out at the end of the Mueller thing," he added.

Federal prosecutors on Friday said Trump during the 2016 election directed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to make illegal payments to two women who claimed they had affairs with the then-Republican nominee.

Earlier Sunday, Rep. Jerry Nadler, the likely incoming chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said the president’s offenses would “certainly” be impeachable.

The House Judiciary Committee initiates impeachment proceedings before they head to a full floor vote.

“Whether they are important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question, but certainly they’d be impeachable offenses because even though they were committed before the president became president, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office," said the New York congressman on “State of the Union.”

Kinzinger warned that Democrats “run a major risk” by considering impeachment.

“I would be very careful if I was them because that’s going to derail, I think, the next two years of their agenda,” he said.
