Republican Rep. Sean Duffy of Wisconsin claimed Democrats "of course" would vote to impeach President Donald Trump if they retake control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections, The Hill reported Friday.
Duffy pointed to pressure Democrats would face from the media to support impeachment and that the party's base would settle for no less if they were in control.
"Democrat candidates might be sketchy about admitting that, especially in more 50-50 seats, but of course they're going to impeach Donald Trump," Duffy said in an interview with Milwaukee News/Talk 1130 WISN's Dan O'Donnell.
"Do you think that MSNBC or CNN would allow for anything less? And by the way, there aren't that many Blue Dog Democrats left in Congress. They are radical leftist, socialist Democrats. They are like [Minority Leader] Nancy Pelosi. They are far-left people.
"That's who's winning their primaries," he added. "Do you think that the far-left 'Resist' movement base of the Democrat Party would accept anything other than impeachment?"
