Chicago Mayor: Dems Shouldn't Tout Trump Impeachment

Chicago Mayor: Dems Shouldn't Tout Trump Impeachment

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday said it would not be wise for Democratic candidates to tout talk of impeaching President Donald Trump, according to Axios.

"I lived through the Clinton White House – this is a serious legal and Constitutional, not political, issue," he told Axios' Mike Allen. "And my view is, there's nothing there to date that we know. . . . I couldn't be angrier at Donald Trump. That said, you don't just flippantly say: We're for or against [impeachment].

"When we get to it, we collectively as a country will know it, as we did with Richard Nixon."

"For your Democratic candidates, you don't recommend them pushing it now?" Allen asked.

"I know you want to drive to politics," Emanuel replied. "This is a case where the best politics is good policy."

Emanuel's comments follow The New York Times report earlier this month that said Republicans were attempting to energize their base by warning voters about congressional Democrats who want to impeach Trump.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told the NYT he has been urging members to "refrain from discussing impeachment," adding: "I think we should let these investigations conclude and see what evidence is found."
