Sen. Cornyn: Dems Pushing to Impeach Because of '20 Fears

(Fox News' "America's Newsroom")

By    |   Wednesday, 30 October 2019 03:15 PM

The push to impeach President Donald Trump shows Democrats are worried about their chances of defeating him in the 2020 presidential race, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is seeking an impeachment rule vote to stay ahead of her "increasingly radical caucus," Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said Wednesday. 

"They tabled the impeachment resolution last January, but now all of a sudden there is a big turn about, starting this incredibly unfair and secretive process with (House Intelligence Committee Chairman) Adam Schiff, somebody who is hardly an impartial leader of this investigation in charge," Cornyn told Fox News' "America's Newsroom."

But Pelosi knows impeachment is "incredibly divisive," said Cornyn, and why she would want to put the United States through the process one year before the presidential election "escapes me."

He also said he does not think Democrats have any more to add to their claims, or that there are sufficient grounds for impeaching the president, or to get the 66 votes necessary in the Senate to convict him and pull him out of office.

"I think Speaker Pelosi is doing this, Adam Schiff is doing this for their own politics, but certainly not for the benefit of the American people," Cornyn said. "I don't think we'll get closure over the incredible polarization we're seeing in our society."
