Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., the third-ranking Democrat in the House, said on Sunday that he thinks President Donald Trump will be impeached at some point.

"I have never said he should not be impeached. What I have said time and time again is, [special counsel Robert] Mueller has developed the grounds for impeachment. The House has to determine the timing for impeachment. There's a big difference," Clyburn told CNN “Sunday Union” host Jake Tapper, who then asked, “you think that the president will be impeached, or at least proceedings will begin in the House at some point, but just not right now?”

Clyburn said that’s “exactly what I feel,” adding, "I think we have already begun. We have got all of these committees doing their work. We're having hearings. We have already won two court cases. And there are other cases that are still to be determined."

He continued, "We are winning this issue. Why should we go out and make missteps and cause us to lose a court decision that will have people saying, 'Why didn't you take your time?'"

Clyburn later walked back his comments, saying he's, "probably farther away from impeachment than anybody in our caucus," per Politico.

“We will not get out in front of our committees. We’ll see what the committees come up with. I’ve said that forever.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has resisted calls for impeachment, saying last week that Trump “wants” to be impeached because it might help him politically.
